Keeping nose elevated after rhinoplasty
It is best to sleep on your back at least until your splint is removed (usually one week). If you are extremely uncomfortable, you doctor may be able to help so give him a call.
Rhinoplasty and sleeping
I would not recommend putting any pressure on your nose while it is healing. Best to avoid this so that the nose can heal properly.
