Whether you had rhinoplasty surgery for reconstructive or cosmetic purposes, taking care of your nose post-surgery is critical to your recovery. It is important to know the recovery process to ensure your goals are met post-surgery. Rhinoplasty surgery requires a time commitment to healing. Some bruising around the nose and eyes will be visible for about a week or two depending on the complexity of your surgery. There will be pain and discomfort up to a week following your surgery. There will be swelling after rhinoplasty and could take up to a year for swelling to fully subside and completely be healed. Dr. Evan Ransom will provide post-surgery instructions to get you on your path to recovery.
The rhinoplasty recovery process is different for every person because no two noses are alike. The rhinoplasty recovery process can be slow but it is important to have patience. Dr. Ransom will guide you through the process from start to finish and answer any questions you may have.
