Post Sinus Lift procedure


  • Treat with ice for the first 48 hours (20 minutes on & 20 minutes off).
  • No blowing your nose. Sniff back only, wipe the end of your nose.
  • No smoking for 48 hours at least (Preferably never).
  • Nosebleeds are normal and may occur up to several days following surgery. You can treat this by leaning your head forward and pinching the nose.
  • Try to avoid sneezing, but if one comes on, sneeze through the mouth. Do not pinch your nose.
  • Do not be alarmed by the presence of bone granules. Some drainage is normal from the nose and mouth, just wipe it away

  • Use over the counter Sudafed for 1 week to relieve nasal congestion.
