I’m trying to prepare for my nose job which is scheduled in a few weeks. What can I do beforehand to help prepare or set up for my recovery at home?
You haven’t mentioned if I am your surgeon or if you are simply asking me this because your own surgeon has not gone over this information with you. If I am your surgeon then I would have already gone over these things with you at least twice and you should have gotten the info in detailed writing so you can prepare. My staff also go over pre and post rhinoplasty instructions with all my patients in great detail. If your surgeon is someone else then you should contact him/her to see what he/she wants you to do. Each plastic surgeon has his or her own set of instructions. You can get an idea of what I tell my rhinoplasty patients by reading this: http://www.virginiafacialplasticsurgery.com/vfps-instructions.html
