[BK Plastic Surgery Hospital] Pre & Post Operative Instructions for Nose Surgery

BK Plastic Surgery Hospital
Post Operative Instructions for 
Nose Surgery

Rhinoplasty or Nose Surgery, along with eye surgery, are known as some of the more basic procedures that can give you a whole new appearance without out too much down time.  The problem is that without the proper pre and post operative care, the outcome of the surgery may differ.

Here at BK Hospital we want to ensure that our patients see positive and successful results after surgery, which is why knowing about both pre and post operative care is so important.

If you are interested in Nose Surgery, but don't know what to expect, be sure to check out the rest of this post.

Pre-Operative Instructions

Things to Avoid

No smoking or drinking one week prior to surgery.
Avoid eating and drinking, including water, 8 hours prior to surgery.
Do not drive without a guardian on the day of surgery.


All medications must be verified with the doctor during the consultation.
Medications for blood pressure, diabetes, and thyroid problems must be taken with a little amount of water on the day of surgery.

Clothing & Make-Up on the Day of Surgery

Wear comfortable clothes with no accessories.  Remove all make up, including nail polish, before coming to the hospital.

Post-Operative Instructions


Moderate swelling can be expected immediately following surgery.  Swelling is most severe 2-3 days after surgery.  This swelling will usually subside within a week.

Washing Your Face

Wash your face 5-7 days after stitches have been removed.


Bleeding may continue until the 2nd day following surgery.  It is okay to wipe the blood with a clean tissue.  But DO NOT wipe any blood that has scabbed, or dried.

Things to Avoid

Avoid reading or using the computer for up to 1 week after surgery.
Avoid saunas, smoking and drinking for 1 month after surgery.
Avoid wearing glasses or frowning for 2-3 weeks after surgery to prevent any movement of the nose implant. 

Ice Pack & Warm Pack

Apply an ice pack for 3-5 days following surgery.
After that, use a warm pack for 2 more weeks to help reduce swelling.


Redness around the surgical site is a normal reaction.  It will gradually disappear after 3-6 months.  The healing process may vary on an individual basis.
