Top 5 Recovery Tips

Having decided to make a significant financial commitment to getting a nose job in Costa Rica , you’ll want to protect that investment and maximize the results. The onus is on you to take care of your nose after surgery, so make sure that you understand and follow your surgeon’s post-operative instructions.


In addition, the following simple steps can help ensure that you make a comfortable and speedy recovery after your procedure:

1. Recovery Period - Make sure that you give your body the full 1-2 weeks of recovery time that is recommended by most surgeons in order to heal properly and efficiently.

2. Designated Recovery Space - Prepare your bed, or an easy, before you undergo surgery so that you can start your recuperation as soon as you return home.

3. Meals and Nutrition - Junk food will be detrimental to your recovery, so prepare some nutritious meals beforehand that you can freeze and simply reheat in the microwave afterwards.

4. Medication – Take your prescribed pain relief as instructed. Don’t be a martyr - suffering through any discomfort will not do you any favours!

5. Protect Your Nose – Even the best surgery can still result in a poor outcome if the nose is bumped, jostled or denied a sufficient opportunity to heal afterwards.
