How to get the most out of your nose job
Prepare for your nose job by stopping smoking and not taking aspirin or ibuprofen. Get someone to drive you home. For the first few days afterward, take your antibiotics and follow your surgeon’s advice on cold packs. Drink lots of fluids and keep your head elevated.
For the next couple of weeks, don’t wear glasses or any kind of clothing that presess against your nose as you put it on or take it off. Take your temperature often and don’t drink or smoke for the first three weeks. Also, don’t blow your nose. This may sound like something that would be hard to avoid, but the odds of it happening can be reduced by a lot if you minimize your exposure to other humans (thereby minimizing your risk of a cold or flu), washing your hands several times a day, trying not to touch your face and staying away from your allergens.
Don’t do anything to raise the blood pressure in your head, like bending over, exercising or lifting anything heavier than a gallon of milk. Most of all, keep your medical appointments and wait until the swelling is completely down before you decide if you like your new nose.
