In brief: Broken nose

Ask your surgeon for a nasal splint that will help you protect the nose during sleep and other activities.

In brief: Sleeping position

Sleep on your back.
The surgeon will place a cast or splint on your nose to protect it. Also sleep on your back. Make sure your nose surgery is done by an ENT/ doc or facial plastic surgeon.

In brief: Guard over Nose

Wear external nasal guard at night for three weeks.
Rest and keep the head elevated even when sleeping. After 3 weeks the nasal bones are stable. Take care.
