What to Expect After Nose Surgery
Immediately after your nose surgery, you may be required to wear a nasal splint over your nose for support. You may also have a small triangular bandage placed beneath the tip of your nose. Nasal packing will be placed inside of the nose to support the nose and keep the airways clean or debris. A small tube may be inserted into each airway to allow you to breath more easily when the packing is in place. All surgical packing will be removed within seven days, and the splint and bandages will be removed within 10 days. Swelling will be present, which may persist for up to a year after surgery, so it is important to be patient when waiting for final results. Dr. Cusimano will provide you with specific recovery instructions that will help your recovery to go smoothly.
