After rhinoplasty you have a cast on your nose which is called nasal splint. Nasal Splint is a plastic hard covering that protects your new nose and helps the bone and nasal cartilages stay fixed and do not move during the recovery time. If the nasal splint gets wet, it will not hold the nasal structure firmly and this might affect the result of surgery.
How long should I have the cast on my nose?
One week after surgery, you will be allowed to go to the shower, wash yourself throughly and make the cast wet and loose enough for removal. Do not remove the splint yourself.
A few hours later, you will be brought to the Dr HOSNANI's office and your nasal splint will be removed by his trained personnel.
