If at first you don’t succeed…
Very few nose jobs need revision. If yours does, you’ll have to wait at least a year after the initial surgery. Find someone who has particular experience in revision rhinoplasty, as this is a more delicate procedure. After any nose job, you need to look after yourself. You’ll need some calories, but avoid salty foods, which can cause inflammation at the tip of your nose. Drink plenty of fluids and get lots of sleep, keeping your head and torso raised.
For the next few weeks, you obviously shouldn’t bump your nose. In fact, you should avoid any garments that could brush against your nose. Keep contact with other people to a minimum, and wash your hands often so you don’t catch a cold— you don’t want to sneeze. Don’t drink or take aspirin for a while. Keep your post-operative appointments. Don’t do anything that might raise blood pressure in your head, such as bending over, exercising hard or lifting heavy objects.
