When Can I Take a Bath After the Rhinoplasty?

I had undergone to a rhinoplasty four days ago,and I still dont know when to take a bath or wash my face over the bandages and splint. The nurse told me to take a bath normally without any cautions but I don't feel thats true. And thanks for this great site :)

Each situation is unique and only your rhinoplasty surgeon knows the specific details of your procedure - we allow patients to shower or bathe as long as the face stays dry
