Wonder how the celebrities seem to recover so quickly after a nose job? They simply cannot afford to stay away from the limelight for long! Now, you might think that the reason for their speedy recovery can be attributed to the best and most expensive post-operative care and medications which help them spring back quickly after their Rhinoplasty Surgery Recovery. That is definitely not the case. The reality is that even you can have minimal downtime (or postoperative slump, as it is known) after your nose job, provided you get the procedure done at one the best Rhinoplasty surgeons in India.
Additionally, here are some tips you can follow (both before and after the Rhinoplasty procedure) as these are proven methods which ensure faster recovery, just like the celebs!
Tip No. 1: Have a thorough initial consultation
As stated before, this is the key step for getting the results you expect from your Rhinoplasty. You must completely discuss your aims for having the surgery with your Rhinoplasty surgeon: are you undergoing the procedure because you wish to breathe better, correct some defects or simply look better? These points will help your surgeon give you the desired results. It is also a good idea to know what to expect from the procedure in order to be better prepared. Read up all you can about the different types of Rhinoplasty and get your doubts cleared by your surgeon.
When you book an online consultation Dr. Ashish will:
- Evaluate your general health status and any pre-existing health conditions or risk factors.
- Discuss the options available to you for nose reshaping.
- Examine and measure your face.
- Ask for your photographs.
- Discuss your nose surgery options.
- Recommend a course of treatment.
- Discuss likely outcomes of a nose surgery and any risks or potential complications.
You will be able to discuss your surgical goals, like outcomes of the surgery, details if you have undergone any previous surgeries, and potential risks if any.
Dr. Ashish uses advanced computer imaging to predict the likely outcome of an ideal nose that will be in harmony with other facial features.
Tip No. 2: Make some lifestyle changes prior to the surgery
Dr. Ashish will give you a list of precautions you must take starting a couple of weeks before the procedure. For example, it is best to avoid rigorous exercise and also quit smoking for at least 2-3 weeks before the day. Also, take your medications as asked by the doctor. Some patients have seen excellent results and speedier recovery with Vitamin C and Zinc supplements. Also, homeopathic remedies (such as Arnica 6C potency), taken a week or 2 before the procedure can minimize bruising and ensure speedier healing.
Tip No. 3: Get back into the routine after the Rhinoplasty surgeons give you the green signal.
Dr. Ashish Davalbhakta uses a number of advanced techniques, 3D scopes, dissolvable sutures, and smaller incisions, all of which ensure faster healing for Rhinoplasty patients. But, naturally, you might be left feeling groggy after the procedure. But laying low can make you feel even more depressed and might even slow down the recovery process further. Instead, start your daily routine while avoiding strenuous activities. You could certainly resume moderate activities like walking, cooking, etc. If needed, call or visit some friends as nothing heals faster than laughter and great company.
Tip No. 4: Meditate!
Light yoga and meditation can help you beat post-operative stress and also speed up recovery. While we certainly do not recommend that you get into complex Asanas, we certainly recommend things like maintaining a journal, listening to music, and generally using this time for some spiritual/personal development. The key is to relax and get some well deserved ‘me’ time.
Tip No.5: Get help
You certainly must not go through this process alone. Ensure that you have some help from friends and relatives apart from your team of Rhinoplasty surgeons in India who will always be around to help and guide you, should you have any questions or concerns. Have someone look after your kids and do the daily chores on your behalf for a couple of weeks after the surgery. Take things easy and pamper yourself while your body heals.
