The Importance Of Nasal Irrigation

By | PSA, Rhinoplasty | No Comments

Nasal irrigation is a common practice for preventing and treating sinusitis, colds, and other related nasal problems. Regularly practicing nasal irrigation can help clear your sinuses and prevent infection, especially during allergy and cold seasons. 

There are a variety of methods used to clean the sinuses and nasal passages. Saline sprays, neti pots, or more complex devices are all commonly used for irrigating the nose and sinuses. It is important to note that when using a neti pot or other at-home equipment you use it correctly and only with sterile water. Using tap water for nasal irrigation can increase the risk of infection. Though it may work, it is not worth the extra risk.

When it comes to cosmetic surgery, we recommend nasal irrigation after rhinoplasty procedures to help clear nasal passages of blood and mucus. This helps prevent infection and keeps the areas clean. Again, the importance of using sterile water is imperative for safe and effective healing.
