Cleaning the Nose after Rhinoplasty
Post-operative wound care
Following a septorhinoplasty, it is not uncommon to have crusting and mucus build up from the procedure and the intranasal incisions or packing/splints. While submerging your nose underwater may seem like a good idea to loosen the crusts and help with some of these problems, I would not recommend it. Generally, gentle use of nasal saline spray and q-tips can help clean your suture lines and clear your nose of crusting/mucus. Best of luck with the healing process!
Swelling, some advices:
In this regard, the nasal swelling Post-op It can last from two weeks to two months.
To reduce this swelling, I recommend you perform delicates daily lymphatic drainage massage therapy over the face (around the nose) avoid sun exposure, and take pain/inflamation pills, as your surgeron precribe you.
