These are instructions specifically for our patients to avoid confusion
after your Rhinoplasty Surgery under Munish Shandilya, Ireland.
DO NOT MASSAGE YOUR NOSE
DO NOT PUT ICE PACKS ON YOUR NOSE & FACE
DO NOT APPLY TAPES ON YOUR NOSE
DO NOT WASH THE NASAL CAVITIES
All surgeons advise what is best for their patients in their opinion.
In our experience, all the above activities have a potential of causing problems but no clear evidence that these are beneficial.
In my series, I have not noticed any long-term problems with swelling unless it was already expected and was discussed with the patient. If necessary we will discuss the postoperative management changes and you are of course welcome to discuss these during your meetings with the surgeon.
