3 Tips for Faster Saddle Nose Repair Recovery

doctor talking on the phone fills papers new york, ny

Individuals suffering from saddle nose often undergo rhinoplasty to restore their appearance. After the procedure, you can expect to spend a few weeks recovering. Your body will need time to heal from swelling and bruising that occur with the surgical procedure. There are things you can do to help speed up healing for less discomfort. Here are three tips for faster recovery with saddle nose repair.

Fuel Your Body with Healthy Nutrients

Eating nutritious foods can assist your body with faster healing. Make sure your meals include lean protein, fruits, vegetables and high-fiber foods. Avoid spicy food, as it can irritate sinuses and create more swelling. Limit your salt intake for two weeks to reduce fluid retention that can aggravate swelling.

Follow Aftercare Instructions

After saddle nose repair surgery, the surgeon will give you specific instructions to follow during recovery. Ignoring these instructions can increase the risks for infections and other complications. Attend all post-operative appointments to help spot any potential problems and to get recommendations with the recovery process.

Take the Recommended Time Off Work

After saddle nose repair, you will need to take two weeks off work to rest and recover. Even if you feel better after a few days, going back to work too soon can cause complications to occur. This can prolong your recovery period and cost you more in lost wages while away from work. Take the recommended time off to fully rest so you can achieve optimal results.

Are You Considering Saddle Nose Repair?

If you are considering saddle nose repair to correct your nasal deformity, reach out to dual board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Maurice Khosh for a consultation. During your appointment, you can learn more about the procedure and risks and see if you are an ideal candidate. Feel more confident about the way you look by booking your appointment today!

Meredith G.
Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!
Jackie C.

After visiting and being evaluated by several doctors, I kept going back to Dr. Khosh. His tranquil spirit and professionalism were captivating. Thank you for a job well done and keeping me calm throughout the entire process. A special thanks to your staff Susan and Christine for all of their support as well. Hi highly recommend Dr. Khosh.

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
Courtney G.
AMAZING!!!!!! I had Dr Khosh perform lipo on my chin/neck and my result is unbelievable! Better than I could have expected! I met with a couple of surgeons and the second I met with Dr Khosh I knew he was the one I was going with. He was compassionate and explained every detail of what would take place during the surgery and what to expect during recovery. I even emailed a few times during recovery with various questions and he got right back to me asap which was really comforting! I honestly fully recommend Dr Khosh, he did an amazing job and is an amazing person.

i can finally breathe!! Dr. Khosh made the entire experience a breeze, it was truly a pleasure to be under his care. I am forever thankful and highly recommend him. Not only does his work speak for himself, but he has excellent bedside manner. His kindness and patience is above and beyond. He takes the time to answer to every question you have to help you understand the process while at the same time making you feel so comfortable. From the first consultation i knew i was in good hands. I am so pleased with the result and forever thankful.
