On the day of your Rhinoplasty surgery

So you’ve found a Rhinoplasty surgeon that you can trust and the big day finally draws near – what other preparations do you need to look out for when undergoing nose surgery in Sydney? Well there are certainly a number of things and getting them in order can certainly make the difference between a smooth operation and a rather unpleasant one:

Don’t walk into the plastic surgery clinic alone – you’ll need somebody to accompany you before and after the operation. Have somebody take you to the clinic and get you home afterwards. It would be best to have that same person stay with you for at least a couple of days to monitor your condition and guarantee your safety in the event of post-operative complications.

The anaesthetics used for the operation will eventually wear down and you can expect to feel a significant amount of pain and discomfort several hours after the operation which is of course completely normal and is generally no cause for concern. Have your pain medications ready along with several ice packs for cold compression to alleviate bruising and swelling in the affected area.

Prepare all the medications prescribed to you well beforehand along with everything that you might need several days after the procedure. Needless to say, you won’t be in any shape to procure these things yourself following the operation nor would you want the person watching you to go out of his way to buy these things for you and leave you alone for any period of time

Follow all post-operative instructions. Your surgeon might advise you to cease taking certain medications that you normally take and avoid certain habits that might hamper the recovery process – smoking, alcohol, etc.

So there you have it – a few of the important things that you’ll have to look into and prepare for when undergoing nose surgery in Sydney.
