Once your surgery is completed, you must follow all the instructions given to you in order to heal properly and have a good outcome.
The following instructions are your obligation. Use this as a checklist of progress as you heal. Included are normal post-surgical experiences and key health considerations that may be a cause of concern.
Call the office immediately if you experience any of the following
You may be wearing a dressing, ace wrap or similar compression around your head to support your ears as they begin to heal in their new position and/or shape. Follow the directions you are given explicitly for wearing this dressing.
It is important that dressing not be removed or dislodged for any reason, except with explicit instructions from the doctor. Doing so may significantly impair the outcome of your procedure.
You will only be released to the care of a responsible adult. All of these instructions must be clear to the adult who will monitor your health and support you.
During this time you will progress with each day that passes. Ease into your daily activities. You will receive clearance to begin return to school or work at your post-operative visit.
As you resume your normal daily activities, you must continue proper care and healing.
Healing will progress; swelling continues to diminish.
Your appearance will continue to refine
It may take a year for all swelling to resolve and for your nasal appearance to settle to a final outcome. Nasal injury repair is the most intricate of plastic surgery procedures and healing is often unpredictable as delicate nasal bones may shift in healing. The outcomes may not be as expected. In some cases a secondary procedure may be recommended to refine your outcomes.
Your appearance will change with age
Like any facial feature, your nose can change as you age. Call us at any time with any of your questions or concerns.
