During your consultation with your plastic surgeon prior to rhinoplasty procedure, your plastic surgeon will give you a customized list of pre-op instructions. Most of these instructions are common for every rhinoplasty candidate. Listed below are some of them:
Avoid certain medications: Avoid aspirin and all the medications that contain blood thinning agents for about two weeks before surgery. Such medications increase the risk of bleeding and delay healing process. However, take prescribed medications regularly. The only over the counter medicine that surgeons usually recommend to take is Tylenol.
Discontinue use of all diet pills: Discontinue the use of all diet pills before your surgery. They can adversely affect anesthesia, cause blood clotting and heart rate, respiratory or blood pressure concerns.
Quit smoking: If you are a smoker, it is very important to quit smoking prior to surgery. This is because smoking can hinder healing process making your recovery longer. It also increases the chances of getting infections.
Refrain from alcohol: Alcoholic drinks can also increase the risks of infections and delayed wound healing. So, refrain from alcoholic drinks for about a week prior to procedure. Also don’t take caffeinated drinks two days before surgery.
Avoid all herbal supplements: Avoid herbal supplements for around two weeks before nose surgery.
Take multivitamins: Take multivitamins regularly with the consent of your plastic surgeon to prepare your body or surgery. The more nutrients your body will have, the healthier you will be and you will heal and recover faster.
Avoid excessive sun exposure: Avoid excessive sun exposure before your nose surgery. Don’t forget to wear strong sunscreen before going outdoors.
What you will need to do immediately before your surgery? Read on to know:
Bring someone with you: It is important to bring someone with you so that he or she can drive you to home safely after surgery as you will be under the effect of anesthesia.
Remove makeup: Remove makeup and any cosmetic products before surgery. Shaving is must for men before surgery. Wear loose clothes on the day of surgery.
Eat something light on the day of surgery: If your surgeon is planning to use local anesthetic for surgery, eat light breakfast on the day of surgery. However, in case of general anesthesia, do not eat anything a night before surgery.
