Nasal Surgery

  • Swelling occurs inside the nose one to two (1-2) weeks postoperatively and is temporary unless a cold or allergies are present.
  • Crusts and scabs will form.
  • Saline nasal spray is used to cleanse and aid in healing.
  • Packing and plastic splints may be placed in the nose to reposition the lining, hold the septum in place, and to reduce bleeding and internal scarring.
  • Expect some throat dryness and irritation due to mouth breathing.
  • Pain medication will be prescribed.
  • Avoid products containing aspirin or ibuprofen, which may cause bleeding.
  • The packing is usually removed within (24-72) hours after surgery, and is done in the office by your doctor.
  • Some temporary discomfort and bleeding are associated with this procedure.
