Cast fallen off after rhinoplasty. What can I do?
Doctor Answers 5
Typically I leave my splints in place for 7 days. The splint helps keep the nasal bones in position. It should be OK that its fallen off given that you are a week out from surgery, but I would recommend you give your surgeon a call to inform the office of what has happened.
All the best!
Rhinoplasty Splint Removal
If your rhinoplasty splint (or cast) falls off after surgery, prior to your surgeon removing it, you should call your surgeon. It is sometimes important to keep either a splint or tape on the nose for an extended period of time in order to decrease swelling. Therefore, your surgeon may want to replace the splint or apply tape, both things that can easily be done in the office.
