Rhinoplasty

Protecting the nose after rhinoplasty is not limited to just the splinting periods. We recommend a cheek pads for patients who wear eyeglasses not to support the pedestals of the glasses upon the nose after rhinoplasty. After rhinoplasty, external rigid fixation of the osteotomy sites takes place in the first week by several methods, such as plaster of Paris bandages or Denver nasal splints. Although the use of external taping does not have a splinting effect on the underlying skeletal or cartilaginous structure, it usually goes on through the postoperative second week until fibrous union begins. The overall healing period...
After surgery on the proximal nose, wearing eyeglasses may be difficult and uncomfortable. A bulky wound dressing may not allow eyeglasses to rest in their proper position. Even if the patient or physician can adjust the wound dressing so that eyeglasses lie in a functional position, the patient may still experience discomfort from continuous pressure on the bridge and sides of  the nose. This pressure can impede vascular supply and thus may modify the wound healing process. The skin on the nasal bridge is thinner in elderly individuals than in young individuals. Such thin skin tends to be more susceptible...
Wearing eyeglasses after rhinoplasty is a problem faced both by patients and surgeons. The restriction of eyeglasses is recommended for several weeks to prevent any undesired deformation of the reconstructed nose. Pressure on the bridge and sides of the nose affects the aesthetic outcome for the overall healing period of osteotomized bones. This pressure may compromise the vascular supply and modify the healing process of the regenerating bones. In addition, the thin skin on the nasal bridge tends to be highly susceptible to pressure and irritation, making maceration and sores possible related complications. Usually patients are discouraged from wearing eyeglasses. Although...
There is no established answer as to when you can start wearing glasses after you inject fillers into the nose. The general consensus among the doctors is to wait at least 4 weeks before you put them on. Injectable fillers like juvederm, restylane, perlane or radiesse will become considerably more stabilized in 72 hours following the procedure. However, the fillers usually take several weeks for your body to render them immobile. Wearing your glasses too soon could cause distortion of the shape of the filler, causing unsatisfactory outcome. Dr. Co eyewear allows you to use glasses without causing any cosmetic...
An important concern for patients who have undergone rhinoplasty is whether they can wear their glasses. Most patients cannot live without corrective eyeglasses, and some may be allergic to contact lenses. There may be other ways for such patients to cope with their eyeglasses after rhinoplasty. Glasses that do not rest on the nasal dorsum may be a solution to patients after rhinoplasty, as they will be much easier to deal with. However, it is okay to wear the glasses that rest on the nasal dorsum before the splint is removed (4-5 days after surgery). Once the splint is removed after 4-5 days, glasses should stay...
