What are the rules that patients should follow after rhinoplasty surgery?

After the surgery, the tampons placed in the nose are usually taken between 2-7 days, depending on the decision of your doctor. In order to support the reshaping nose shape, an aluminum plate or plaster is applied to the back of the nose and taken for the first week. In surgeries performed with open technique, the sutures placed on the anterior part of the nose are removed on the 7th day. Ice is applied around the eyes for 24 hours after the surgery, for an average of 20 minutes per hour. Swelling and bruising around the eyes usually disappear at the end of the 1st week, but this period may extend up to 2 weeks.
