What is the postoperative period and how is the recovery process after this surgery?
Rhinoplasty, popularly known as nose surgery, is one of the most sought-after surgical procedures in medical practices. According to the Brazilian Society of Plastic Surgery (SBCP), Rhinoplasty is one of the 5 most common plastic surgeries in Brazil.
Surgery improves the structure and size of the nose, gives it a more harmonious appearance, improves facial features and increases patients’ self-esteem. Since rhinoplasty is performed in a very sensitive area, it requires some care in the post-operative period in order to get excellent results.
After the first stage of rhinoplasty recovery, patients gradually return to their routines. Everything will of course depend on each case, but in general it is already possible to return with some daily activities from the first 7 days. Gradually, the nose reduces swelling and reveals the new structure.
After 4 weeks, it is usually possible to return to sports activities. However, it is recommended to avoid contact sports to prevent possible trauma to the nose area. Generally, the full results of Rhinoplasty appear 1 year after the surgical procedure.
As with any surgical procedure, when a patient undergoes Rhinoplasty, it is important to remain at rest during recovery. It is important to avoid all efforts for the first 7 days for the healing process, which will affect the results of aesthetic surgery.
Therefore, do a good planning before having Rhinoplasty to ensure adequate rest time. For example, in the summer, the procedure is highly recommended, as it often coincides with the vacation period from work and college, which provides more peace of mind for complete rest.
Of course, food is also extremely important in the rhinoplasty recovery process. This is because in the first days after surgery it is very complicated to eat foods that require the consumption of soft, liquid meals at room temperature. So bet on nutritious and easy-to-eat foods to avoid straining the nose area.
After the first few days, you can gradually add solid foods when more care is needed. Fruits, vegetables, greens, vegetables, whole grains and low-fat animal proteins are indicated for the post-operative diet. Additionally, staying well hydrated is also crucial for recovery.

Sun exposure care
During the healing process of rhinoplasty, patients should avoid exposure to sunlight, as the sun can create final pigmentations on the skin as well as impair healing. For this reason, it is important to follow the surgeon’s recommendations regarding the required time before going out in the sun.
It is important to avoid the sun as much as possible when the surgery is healed and when the doctor-surgeon has permission. For this reason, it is essential to use sunscreen during the hottest months of both summer and winter. Protection against sunlight will directly affect the results of Rhinoplasty.
Performing rhinoplasty affects the patient’s self-esteem and self-confidence and benefits the quality of life. With a simple care in the postoperative period, patients will achieve incredible results by transforming the structure of the nose and making it more harmonious.
