To begin your journey with Marc Seifman, you will typically have an initial consultation to discuss your goals and see how we can help you. It is important to remember that the initial consultation is a no obligation consultation. If you wish to proceed, we will schedule the surgery on a date that suits you. We will discuss the steps you need to take in the lead up to your surgery, and also on the day of your procedure.
Initially, you may experience some discomfort in the nose and sinuses. We advise against blowing your nose, or bending over, for the first two weeks. You will likely have a little splint on your nose, and may have some packing in your nose over the first night after the operation. You may develop some bruising around the nose and eyes, which will resolve with time. You should be able to go home either on the same day as the operation, or the very next day.
You should be able to return to work within two to three weeks depending on what your regular occupation is. We advise against strenuous physical activity and exercise within the first six weeks.
