other medications such as aspirin and ibuprofen will need to be discontinued as they can cause
excessive bleeding during surgery and recovery. Talk to your doctor about all of the medications
that you are on so that you can decide what needs to be discontinued.

        Another step that can be taken by patients to reduce the amount of swelling during their
recovery time is to start a low sodium diet. Any white carbohydrates should also be avoided such
as pastas, bagels and potatoes. Instead, eating a healthy variety of fruits and green vegetables is
recommended to enable a healthy recovery.

         It is typical that a general anesthesia is used during the rhinoplasty procedure. This means
that it is crucial for the patient to not eat or drink any water after midnight on the night before
their surgery. Disregarding this aspect in preparation can lead to your surgery being cancelled
because it is too high risk. In the morning you need to make sure that you do not swallow any
water when brushing your teeth or washing your face. Keep a natural face and refrain from
applying any makeup, lotions or jewelry. Make sure that you are dressed in comfy clothes and
that you have something extra to cover up with as you may be cold.

        Do yourself a favor and take all measures possible to enable a smooth recovery. There is
only so much that your Doctor can recommend and provide you. It is up to you to take the extra
steps and follow through with all of their instructions.
