- Yes, you should use the spray because you should not be blowing your nose during these first few weeks of healing

When to Use Saline Spray After Septorhinoplasty
My patients typically begin using saline spray the day after surgery. Your surgeon will tell you when the right time for you is to start using saline spray based on the type and extent of surgery performed. If you did not receive written instructions about when to start saline spray, you should be able to call the surgeon's office for an answer.
