When can I sleep on my side after rhinoplasty?

Rinoplasti sonrası ne zaman yan yatılabilir?

When can I sleep on my side after rhinoplasty? Lying on your side after rhinoplasty can put pressure on the surgery area and delay healing. Therefore, it is recommended to sleep on your back for the first 2 weeks after rhinoplasty.

It is important to get your doctor’s approval to start side sleeping. Your doctor will determine an appropriate time to start sleeping on your side, depending on the healing status of the surgery area.

When you start sleeping on your side, placing a high pillow under your head will help reduce pressure on the surgery area. You also need to be careful to avoid blows to the nose area when lying on your side.

As a general rule, it is recommended to start sleeping on your side after rhinoplasty within 2 weeks after surgery. However, this period may be longer or shorter depending on the healing status of the surgery area.
