Default Alcohol after rhinoplasty

Hello everyone.

I did my surgery 11 days ago and last night I had two glasses of wine. Now I feel so guilty and I wonder if this will slow down my healing???


Thanks,
Michael

Hi Michael

When I did my nose surgery I didn't drink for a month, your doctor should have told you...

Cheers

I don't think a drink here or there will make any difference, but if you can avoid it, you'll swell less. I am six months post op, I swell if I have more than one glass of wine...

I've been doing some research and everyone is saying wait about 3 weeks until you drink. Drinking during recovery time is a bad idea, it can take about 6-12 months for you to heal, so I think you should wait before you drink?

You spent so much time and money to get your nose job, you shouldn't drink while you are healing, alcohol thins out the blood and it will give you extra swelling.

Good luck!

Yes i feel much better, give it 2 weeks and you should be fine id say the 1st few days are the ones that are not fun but you learn to cope. Get plenty of rest oh and buy straws to drink water with as its very difficult also i would say get chapstick for lips and lots of soup and soft foods.nose right

I had my nose job done 2 months ago. I drank alcohol after 3 weeks and it went perfectly fine. Would not suggest anyone to drink the first week after surgery though.
