    Hey,

    I am all booked in for endo-nasal rhiniplasty on Aug 12th. To get rid of what is pleasantly termed a "dorsal bump" LOL.
    Basically i am wondering how to prepare? Should i stop drinking, eat really well, take a supplement to aid healing?
    If anyone has had/wants to have/is just well clever and has any tips about prepping for surgery i would LOVE it.
    Obs I'll be under general aenesthetic. (ah how is that spelt?!)
    Anyhoo... theres my query! :rolleyes:

    Cheers.

    I'm not an expert, but on the day you're not meant to eat anything. Don't use any cosmetic products. Get a good sleep the night before.

    It's not much, but I hope I helped.

    Hey, i don't suppose you could tell me a couple of things?

    - how long did it take to finalise your appointment after the first consultation
    - how many consultations did you have
    - is it private or NHS
    - could you see images of how it *should* look afterwards

    ?

    thanks!

    Generally for general anaesthetic you should stop eating about 6-8 or so hours before and can drink water up to 2 hours before your op. The hospital will tell you personally.

    I had an op recently under general anaesthetic. I was admitted at 7:30 (op was about 8:30-9:00) I had to stop eating (and drinking anything but water) at midnight and was allowed to drink water up to 6:30.

    Then after your surgery just take it easy, really.

    Hiya
    I had my rhinoplasty yesterday and am on Day 2 of recovery now. If you've got any questions let me know. It's not that painful recovering as long as you take all the prescribed pain killers!

    Rhinoplasty is an inventive form of plastic surgery done by a large number of people to enhance the nose appearance. So, I suggest it is always better to get an advice from the surgeon and then prepare oneself for the surgery.
