It’s not unusual for patients to have nasal congestion following nose job in Omaha Nebraska. This is often secondary to swelling with crusting and scabbing within the nasal passage. When this occurs, patients have an irresistible urge to blow their noses.
We generally recommend that patients avoid blowing their nose for at least two weeks following routine omaha rhinoplasty and four to six weeks following septoplasty.
When patients blow their noses in the early postoperative period, they can potentially damage the nasal mucous and cause bleeding. For this reason, we generally recommend nasal saline irrigations in the immediate postoperative period.
