What should the patient pay attention to after revision rhinoplasty surgery?

After revision nose surgery Antalya Turkey

Patients who have revision rhinoplasty surgery become more conscious, more careful, and have an easier recovery period, based on the experience they gained from their previous surgeries.

  • After revision nose surgery for the first 48 hours avoid any behavior that may cause nose bleeding . Blowing your nose, moving around a lot, doing sports, and lifting heavy objects can cause nosebleeds.
  • After nose surgery do not use blood thinners or herbal teas.
  • After revision rhinoplasty, bruising occurs in proportion to the intervention made on the nasal bone. Apply cold compresses to relieve bruising and swelling.
  • Support your head with pillows while sleeping or lying down. Make sure your head remains higher than your body. Having the nose above the heart level reduces the throbbing felt, relieves swelling and bruising, and reduces the possibility of bleeding.
  • Before and after nose surgery as with all surgeries, avoid smoking. Cigarettes inhibit the healing of wound tissues due to the substances they contain.
  • To promote healing, do not smoke for at least 2 weeks before surgery and until 3-4 weeks after surgery. Successful completion of the postoperative recovery period directly affects the outcome of the rhinoplasty procedure.
  • After revision rhinoplasty you can return to daily life in the 3rd week, provided that no strenuous sports activities are performed.
  • After one month, as the swelling decreases, you will experience a level of improvement that will not even be noticeable after the revision rhinoplasty procedure. Full recovery after revision rhinoplasty is completed in at least the 6th month and at most in the 12th month.
  • After revision nose surgery avoid being in extremely hot, steamy environments . Do not take long showers.
  • Do not go to the sauna or the sea for as long as your doctor deems appropriate and do not be in environments where you will be exposed to direct sunlight.

After revision rhinoplasty

  • After revision rhinoplasty surgery, it is normal to experience pain, swelling and bruising in the first week. Follow the advice of your doctor, Plastic Surgery Specialist Bülent Demir. Rest, stay away from behaviors that will tire you out.
  • Since the second rhinoplasty surgery, when a few months have passed , it will be seen that the swelling on the face has decreased somewhat and the bruising and yellowing have almost completely disappeared, unless there is anything that would prevent healing. In addition, during this period, the swelling on the bridge of the nose decreases rapidly and the numbness at the tip of the nose disappears.
  • The recovery process may be slower in people who have had a second nose surgery with complex nasal tip revision.
  • After revision nose surgery in the first year, the nose must be protected against all kinds of impacts.
  • As in all surgeries, after revision nose surgery, the patient's strict compliance with the recommendations given by the plastic surgeon and regular attendance at check-ups directly affects the outcome of the procedure.
  • Revision rhinoplasty, which is planned specifically for each person, is a surgical procedure in which it is considered normal for each individual to experience a healing process of different durations. Patients should not compare their post-procedure recovery processes with others.

Is it difficult to have nose surgery for the second time?

Revision rhinoplasty performed by a successful and experienced surgeon is not difficult for the patient. Because revision rhinoplasty has no different difficulties for the patient than the first rhinoplasty surgery. For the doctor, revision rhinoplasty is more difficult than the first nose surgery and requires experience and high dexterity.

Is it risky to get a second nose job?

Secondary rhinoplasty surgeries performed less than 6 months after the first rhinoplasty have a high failure rate. The final result of rhinoplasty surgery is achieved after 1 year. Having a second rhinoplasty surgery before the nose shape is settled may lead to poor results.
