Rhinoplasty Recovery Guide 👃 - 47 - How To Make Saline Solution For The Nose After Rhinoplasty?

Nasal Saline Lavage or Irrigation After Rhinoplasty

Make your own saline rinse for lavage or irrigation of nose after the rhinoplasty

After 3 weeks of nose surgery, saline can be prepared at home. It is ideal to use boiled and cooled water.

Practically 1 teaspoon of water in 1 teaspoon salt and half teaspoon of carbonate is enough to throw. Rock salt or himalayan salt may also be used.

Saline can be applied to the nose by hand from the cup or by using products such as "Sinus Rinse" or "Rhino Horn". It is ideal to perform this application 3 times a day.

Points to be considered:
  • Using boiled water while preparing salt water at home may reduce the risk of infection within the nose
  • It is not appropriate to use salt water prepared in the house after the surgery
  • Ideal not to apply excessive pressure during irrigation with intranasal saline at home
  • It should be kept clean and used by only one person with plastic bottle such as sinus rinse which is used with intranasal lavage.
If you live on the shores of the sea and the ocean, natural mineral water is up to your feet! You can use the sea or ocean water to wash the nose.

The information in this guide was prepared by Dr.Murat Enöz for patients who underwent rhinoplasty. 
You can find different opinions and suggestions from other clinics and doctors. Please take into consideration 
the recommendations of the doctors who performed your aesthetic nose surgery. Sometimes drug names given here 
only in Turkey may also belong to the drugs found. Plenty of luck :)
