How to Prepare for Your Rhinoplasty
You should begin prepping for your surgery in the days before your procedure. The following steps are highly recommended to help your recovery go smoothly:
Take Care of Your Body
The week before your procedure, getting as much rest as possible and staying hydrated is highly recommended. Procedures can be hard on the body since they require extensive healing and recovery. Going into your procedure well-rested will improve your energy. Furthermore, drinking plenty of water will keep your body hydrated and help your body’s natural healing processes.
Make a Plan
Now is the time to start making your plan for your aftercare. While you may have already scheduled time away from work, you should also ask any family or friends if they’re available to drive you home from the procedure and if they can stop by in the following days to help. You may also start meal prepping.
The Day Before Your Procedure
On the day before your procedure, you should start fasting at midnight since you will be under general anesthesia for your rhinoplasty. Although you will have to change into a gown for the rhinoplasty itself, choosing a comfortable outfit beforehand to wear after your surgery will save you time and can help you begin your recovery process the right way.
