Sometimes things go wrong
Most people who get nose jobs are happy with them, but sometimes there’s an error in communication or something goes wrong during the procedure. Revision rhinoplasty can fix your nose, but you’ll have to wait at least a year after the initial surgery. While you’re waiting, find a specialist in revision rhinoplasty, a more delicate procedure than a normal nose job. Stop smoking and learn to wear contacts if you have glasses — you won’t want to wear glasses during the recovery.
After the revision rhinoplasty, take your pain medication and antibiotics, and try not to cry. Drink plenty of fluids and get lots of sleep, keeping your head and torso up. For the next few weeks, you should obviously not risk impact trauma to your nose. In fact, you should avoid pullover sweaters that could brush against your nose. Don’t go out and meet too many people, and wash your hands often so you don’t catch the flu — you don’t want to sneeze. If you’re going outside on a sunny day, put sunscreen on your nose. Keep all appointments with the surgeon.
