Pore Cleaning after Rhinoplasty at 1 Month Postop

      Gentle nose cleaning is ok after a month following rhinoplasty.  No vigorous cleansing or harsh chemicals.

Cleaning your face after rhinoplasty

Dear Jay,

  • You can use discomfort as your guide
  • As long as it doesn't hurt, you should be fine to clean the nose
  • Cleaning the pores will help the swelling come down sooner

Cleaning the nose after rhinoplasty

at a months time you should be able to clean the inside and outside of your nose with relatively norma vigor without the risk of injuring your results.

one side note - don't pluck nose hairs.  this has been shown to increase risk of infection.

if you don't like your nose hairs, trim them with scissors carefully but dont pull them out.
