I am scheduled for rhinoplasty and now I realize that I didn’t get all of my questions answered. After the surgery, what type of bandage is put on my face? Will it cover my eyes? Will I be able to change the bandage myself at home? How long does it have to stay on my face?
You really should ask your surgeon these questions. Not all surgeons use the same type of dressing. That said, you can expect to have some sort of a splnt on your nose that comes off in 5-7 days. You will have guaze “drip pad” under your nose for the first night at least. You eyes will not be covered other than when you have an ice pack on them, which is very important the first couple of days.
