Before the nose surgery

Rhinoplasty in Iran

The nose surgery

  • Performed under general anesthetic
  • Takes around two hours
  • Leaves minimal scarring
  • Normally outpatient

Immediately after the nose surgery

  • A splint is placed over your nose bridge, possibly packs inside the nostrils, and possibly ice packs over your eyes, to minimize bruising and swelling
  • Usually, you can not breathe through the nose; drinking plenty of fluids helps with a sore throat
  • However the congested nasal feeling is the reason for your discomfort, painkillers will be offered

Following the nose surgery

following the surgery you may:

  • Experience numbness, bruising, and swelling (they gradually fade)
  • Have slight bleeding from nostrils which can be dabbed away
  • Need to rest in a semi-upright position for the first few days and avoid bending down
  • Be required to come into the clinic for a post-operative appointment 7-10 days after the surgery
  • Find contact lenses that are difficult to insert or remove; glasses may be uncomfortable

    Putting on the nasal strip after surgery

    Putting a strip after a nose job is very important. For the first weeks after surgery, usually surgeons put the strip on your nose themselves but after that, with training, you can do this on your own. Be careful not to loosen the nasal strip and if it did, immediately change it. In case of allergies to strip material, consult with your surgeon.


What symptoms are alarming after the rhinoplasty?

In case of observing these symptoms call your surgeon immediately:

  • High fever (more than 38-39 Celsius degree)
  • Spotting bright blood without clot
  • Dizziness, nausea, and vomit
  • Diarrhea
  • Severe pain in the nose area
  • Breathe shortness, High-frequency heartbeat
