Size, shape, and asymmetry of the nose
2-4 hours
Patients may experience swelling and bruising around the eyes and nose, slight bleeding, and stuffiness when breathing through the nose.
Anytime a patient has surgery, there is a risk of bleeding, infection, scarring, or side effects from anesthesia.
Most patients return to work or school one week after a rhinoplasty. Some patients choose to take two weeks off. Patients are encouraged to start walking and doing light exercise starting two weeks after surgery. Full exercise can start 4-6 weeks after surgery.
