Nose surgery

Anyone who undergoes a nose operation asks themselves many questions about the time after:

  • How long have you been sick?
  • How long does the bleeding last?
  • When is the nose stable again?
  • How long does the plaster of paris stay on the face?
  • How long can you not do sports?

After nose surgery: what is normal?

Part of the normal course of healing after a nose operation is that Swelling and bruises occur in the cheek area and under the lids. Also Pain and a headache belong to the usual course after the nose surgery. It can also easy bleeding or that Bloody mucus emerges come.

After a nose operation, the splint is usually changed after about a week because the swelling has often decreased significantly by then. A stabilizing bandage or even a fixing plaster or tape is often sufficient. How long the tamponade - the dressing material that is supposed to stop any bleeding - remains in the nose depends on the type and severity of the procedure.

Follow-up care after a nose operation also means that the doctor has to pull the strings. However, this only affects the threads he used to sew the area between the nostrils. All other threads can stay in the nose and dissolve by themselves over time. After six months they should be gone.

After nose surgery: what should freshly operated patients do without?

Movement is good after a nose operation to get the circulation going and has a positive effect on the healing time. However, the physical activity should not be too vigorous. Those who have been operated on should avoid strenuous exercise for between eight and twelve weeks. The same applies to visits to the sauna, steam bath or solarium, and wearing glasses should be interrupted for eight to twelve weeks after a nose operation.

For about three to four weeks, newly operated people should not blow their nose or fly after a nose operation. Swollen nasal mucous membranes can block the passage to the ear - so the body cannot equalize the pressure and damage to the eardrum can occur. During other activities - such as kissing or sleeping on their side - patients should make sure that they do not strain their nose or make strenuous facial movements in order to promote healing as quickly as possible.
