When you are considering any plastic surgery, you may be looking for as much information as you can find. Rhinoplasty, or nose surgery, is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures in the United States. One of the most frequently asked questions we get at our office is regarding the length of the recovery time after rhinoplasty. The answer is a bit more complicated than you would think.
The average recovery time after a rhinoplasty depends on your age, biology, as well as the type of rhinoplasty performed. Directly after the surgery, you will experience pain, soreness, and swelling of the nose and face. The swelling should start to subside about a week or two following your procedure. After about a week, you should feel well enough to resume your regular daily routine, but you will notice some swelling that persists for several weeks. The final results of your rhinoplasty may not be visible until several months later.
There are some simple things you can do to speed up your rhinoplasty recovery time. Do the following:
If you have questions about your anticipated recovery time after your rhinoplasty, it is best to discuss them with your plastic surgeon.
