Tips for Reducing Bruising and Swelling after Rhinoplasty

Thanks for the great questions. It sounds like you're doing all the right things so far! In terms of sleeping, head elevation is helpful, as is sleeping on your back. Lastly, healing supplements like arnica montana and bromelain can be very helpful. Best of luck going forward.

1 Month After Septorhinoplasty..what else Should I Void?

Dear Dewd,

Thank you for your questions.  At this point, gradually increase your activity level.  You may have some increased swelling that waxes and wanes with increased activity, but this will not cause permanent damage. Just something to expect.  This will gradually dissipate over time.

Best Wishes,
