Hi everyone! I just want to get your suggestions regarding healing after a nose job.
How does one make sure that you heal without a hitch? I am about to go into surgery in just a few weeks, and I am very much apprehensive about the healing process and how it might turn out. Please advise, especially those who have gone through the procedure.

You follow a self care routine, nurses will explain how to take care of your nose :smile:
And to speed up the process, the key is to minimize swelling

I took bromelain ampoules and arnica cream that I bought in a Korean pharmacy. That really helped my swelling go down, but my nose didn't look great until day 11/12. I was **really** shocked when the cast was taken off on day 6, but it gets a lot better! (Had a bit of a cry on day 7 though, my nose looked huge). 2 weeks after, my nose looked fine. It's now less than 2 months after surgery and I really love it. Also the nurses will show you how to clean your nose after surgery- it's important ^^ I got scolded by the nurses for not doing it well because I thought I had to clean all the way inside- turns out it's just around the stitches.
