Neti Pot Two Weeks After Rhinoplasty

Thank you for your question, Cara. In general, using a Neti Pot to rinse the nose with saline (salt water) should not present any problems. Saline administration in various forms can be helpful to minimize dryness and crusting during the post-op period. That being said, check with your surgeon about your particular case since he or she is in the best position to advise you. Good luck.

I feel you can use Neti Pot without problems 2 weeks after your rhinoplasty, but my opinion means nothing - talk to your surgeon.

This should not be a problem and will help with nasal drying.  Let your surgeon OK its use though.  Donald R. Nunn MD  Atlanta Plastic Surgeon.

It is normal to have congestion after a rhinoplasty, since the membranes inside can get inflammed. The use of a neti pot can help the breathing and will not harm the results.
