The first few days after your facial procedure, it is in your best interest to avoid jumping in a steamy, hot shower directly. A great way to postpone that is by creating a “To Do” list, hanging it up on the fridge. And enjoy a nice, warm bubble bath without exposing your face into the water. You will want to avoid very hot water for at least two days. After you have reached the third day after your procedure you can shower with warm water. YAY!

You will definitely want to avoid divulging your nasal splint to water and steam, because like any band aid your cast will start to slip off and cause irritation to your skin. You can still wash your face with care and use any kind of soap that you usually do in your morning routine.

This isn’t just advice for specifically a rhinoplasty, but any facial procedure in general.

“My nose is a little bit swollen
But at last I’m finally rollin’
Water on my face…
A moment of grace
This bliss shall not ever be stolen”
