Your surgeon plays an important role during the whole process of any surgery (rhinoplasty, mentoplasty, otoplasty, etc.). Remember to follow all the instructions provided by your doctor for faster recovery from rhinoplasty and a better final result.
Each patient will experience different intensities of the symptoms described below. Some experience all the symptoms, while others may experience a part of them.
Rhinoplasty generally takes a recovery of two to three weeks, but the entire process can take up to a year.
When you experience any unusual symptoms described by your doctor, call your doctor immediately.
There will be some postoperative visits to the doctor, generally included in the price of a rhinoplasty, to monitor the state in which your nose is healing.
Rhinoplasty Surgery Expectations
Your surgeon should set all of your recovery expectations and give you an idea of how long the recovery process will take.
How long is the recovery?
Each person recovers differently in terms of the time and the healing process. We can give you a general idea of what you can expect after rhinoplasty surgery, as well as the images you can see of nose surgery before and after. Generally, unlike a hyaluronic acid rhinoplasty, the average recovery time is two to three weeks. Please note that the time may vary from patient to patient depending on the extent of the surgery and other factors.
How long is it, and how is the postoperative period?
The surgery takes between one and a few hours, and you are usually allowed to go home the same day.
Immediately after surgery, you will be taken to a recovery room until you wake up from general anesthesia, and then you can have someone drive you home.
Depending on how your body reacts to anesthesia, you may have some nausea immediately after the procedure.
You will feel discomfort, congestion, tiredness, and sensitivity in and around your nose as well. Other common symptoms are pain, swelling, and discharge from the nose.
You will not be able to blow your nose for about a week after surgery. Blowing your nose can interrupt the healing process and may even reopen incisions that were made during surgery.…
