Sinus Lift

  1. After the procedure, you may have some bleeding in the area.  You may use 2-3 gauze pads and apply gentle pressure to the area for 20-30 minutes.  You may experience some bleeding from your nose.
  2. Do not blow your nose.  Try to avoid sneezing.  Sneezing and blowing your nose could dislodge graft material or lead to an infection.
  3. You may have some swelling and/or bruising for up to 3 days following surgery.
  4. Stay on a soft diet for 3-5 days after surgery and avoid chewing in the surgical area if possible.
  5. Take all prescribed medications as directed. Do not take the antibiotic or pain medicine on an empty stomach, as this may cause nausea.
  6. You will need a post-operative appointment in 10-14 days for suture removal.
