The nose is an important part of your facial appearance, but you’re not alone if you found yourself wishing for a more proportionate experience. Rhinoplasty is a great way to address cosmetic issues relating to your nose, for an enhanced sense of facial harmony.
The Rhinoplasty Recovery Process
On average, rhinoplasty recovery can last from one to two weeks. Swelling and bruising are common and normally fade over the next 10 to 14 days. However, it can take as much as a year for the final result to be realized.
Your nose may be tender, and you may experience a dull headache at first, though any discomfort can be managed with medication. The stitches will be removed about three days after surgery.
Most people are feeling well enough, and are confident in their appearance, to return to work in just a few days. Exercise, strenuous activities, and contact sports should be postponed for at least four to six weeks.
