What are the dos and don’ts during rhinoplasty recovery in Miami?

Rhinoplasty is a plastic surgery procedure that reshapes the delicate structures of your nose and nasal cavities, which gives you an attractive, appealing, and functional nose. However, there are some dos and don’ts that you need to do during the recovery process, and they are as follows:

  1. Do eat healthily and increase water intake. For you to heal faster and feel better, eat a healthy diet and drink plenty of water. A good nutrition diet gives your body what it needs to heal, replenish, and repair during the recovery process. On the other hand, drinking water speeds up your healing process by flushing out the toxins from anesthetics and as well as minimize possible infections. It also allows oxygen and nutrients to be distributed evenly to your tissues, bloodstream, and drainage of the wound to occur properly.
  2. Do get enough rest and recover. Following the rhinoplasty plastic surgery procedure, your body needs to have enough energy to heal and rebuild itself. Dr. Carlos Spera—a board-certified plastic surgeon in Miami suggests that you need to get rid of strenuous activities, including sports, aerobics, or any activities where bumping your nose could happen. Don’t deprive yourself of getting a sound sleep and let your nose heal and recover during these crucial periods.
  3. Don’t take any anti-inflammatory medications that are not prescribed by your plastic surgeon. Anti-inflammatory medication can cause you swelling that can potentially increase your blood flow. These medications can lead to excessive bleeding, which slows down the recovery process. Discuss with Dr. Spera before taking anti-inflammatory medications.
  4. Don’t take any painkillers or other medications without your plastic surgeon’s consent. Aside from anti-inflammatory medications, never attempt to take any painkillers without the consent of Dr. Spera. He will prescribe you the right painkillers or other medications to reduce the amount of discomfort that you experience following the plastic surgery procedure. In your recovery process, you will experience some pain and discomfort, especially during the first few weeks. The dosages will be specific so that they would not hinder your fast recovery or can cause any negative reactions to the healing process.
  5. Do take a walk and get outside. It is essential if you plan on things that can benefit you for a faster recovery. Take a walk as it greatly helps you increase your blood circulation throughout your body. It also helps fluid move upwards, which will heal your nose faster. Walking can also help you to release stress while preventing swelling or fluid from building up in your body. Increase breathing and slightly increased heart rate are essential to help get oxygen flowing in your body, which aids you to a faster recovery process.
  6. Do take a bath instead of taking a shower. The bandages, sprints, and supports placed in and around your nose following the procedure should not get wet. To prevent these from becoming wet, taking a bath instead of a shower is preferable. Wash your face with a damp cloth around the bandages. It can help your nose outside the bandage fresh. Moreover, bandages should be removed around the first week following the rhinoplasty procedure; thus, this routine would not have to continue too long. 
  7. Don’t consume too much spicy and salty food. To get rid of irritation and sinuses in your nose, it is preferable if you get rid of peppery, spicy, and salty foods. Spicy foods can cause your blood vessels to dilate which can increase your swelling and bruise in the early stages of your recovery process. Salty foods can significantly increase your blood pressure that maximizes the chance of any swelling and pressure around the surgical site. To lessen the discomfort associated with swelling, it is best to get rid of them. It will significantly prevent your nose from becoming irritated in general, which promotes speedy recovery.
