How Do I Remove My Cast Myself After Rhinoplasty

Most patients will have their cast removed by Dr. Buonassisi at the 1 week post operative follow up appointment. Some out of town patients who travel home before the 1 week post operative appointment can take their casts off on their own. Here are instructions for doing so:

  • remove your cast 7 days after your surgery
  • the cast that we use after a rhinoplasty is called a thermoplastic cast; it actually softens with heat – so heat up the cast by having a long, warm (not too hot) shower
  • get lots of warm water over the cast, allow it to soften, and allow the glue underneath to soften as well
  • once softened, you should be able to gently and slowly peel the cast off of the skin
