Rapid recovery after rhinoplasty (part2)
Tips for recovery after rhinoplasty
Your doctor will advise you to use a bathtub instead of a shower and eat high-fiber foods to minimize pressure on the surgical site. You should avoid extreme facial expressions such as laughing or smiling, as they bend the facial muscles and shake the surgical site.
You should also avoid clothes that you pull down, such as shirts or sweaters, as they may cause minor damage to your nose. It is best to wear clothes that you can fasten from the front, such as a button-down shirt.

Finally, do not wear glasses for at least 4 weeks after surgery. No unnecessary pressure should be applied to the nose while it is being repaired. Instead of putting glasses on the bridge of your nose, stick them to your forehead or do not use them.
You need to protect your nose from UV rays to prevent discoloration or hyperpigmentation at the surgical site. Before going out, apply a large amount of sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30. Sunscreen creates a protective barrier on sensitive parts of the nose that are prone to discoloration.
Eat a low-salt diet other than eating high-fiber foods. The nose will swell after the surgery. A low-salt diet prevents inflammation of the nose by preventing water from accumulating in the tissues of the nose. Never use an ice pack on the surgical site to reduce nasal congestion. Swelling from your rhinoplasty should subside slowly in about a year or less, depending on the complexity of the surgery.
