Although people can return to their normal lives within 2-3 days after the septoplasty operation, it may differ from person to person or the type of operation performed.
If necessary, your doctor will prescribe antibiotics and painkillers for preventive purposes after the operation. Use them as directed by your doctor.
One of the most important issues to be considered after the operation is the protection of the nose from blows and traumas. A blow to be taken during bone healing process may adversely affect the success of the operation and deviation may occur again. Therefore, be sure to protect your nose.
The patient’s tampons are removed within 2-3 days after the septoplasty surgery, and if suture materials are used that do not disappear on their own, the stitches are removed at the end of a week.
Under normal conditions, swelling and bruising are not observed at the end of septoplasty operations which performed with closed technique. However, if the operation includes rhinoplasty, within few days after the operation, you may experiences welling and bruises under your eyes and around your nose. And the recovery period may differ.

In addition to these points, avoid excessive exercise and tiring daily activities. Do not eat or drink any hot food such as tea, coffee or soup. Take care to keep your head above the heart level while lying down. Do not lean forward. Do not blow your nose and do not lift heavy objects as this is likely to put pressure on your nose. Avoid very hot and steamy baths. Stay short in the shower. And, finally avoid being in the sun and sunbathing.
