Nose Rhinoplasty

How long is recovery after from Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasties are usually common and easily completed procedures. Every nose is unique so there is not a single time of recovery like a hair transplant or an eye surgery. Were you able to breathe normally? Did you have trouble sleeping? Did you have septum deviation or was the amount of cartilage in your nose enough for the procedure? There are many different questions that result in different recovery periods after rhinoplasty but of course, we can make generalizations.

Usually, the patient stays at the hospital for 1 night after a regular rhinoplasty surgery. At some complicated septoplasties where the nose is blocked by bone and cartilage, the patient is expected to stay at the hospital for 2 days for changing the wound’s dressing and regular doctor visits. After 1 or 2 nights, the patient is discharged, ready to get on with a normal life. The wound inside the nose is expected to heal after a week but once the tampons are removed, the quality of life increases instantly.

After 2 weeks, most of the swelling and bruising resolves but doctors say it takes around 3 to 6 months for the nose to settle into its new shape. After a year, patients’ new nose is fully healed. The most painful process is the first couple of days like most plastic surgeries, the result can be seen instantly and there are usually no limitations about daily routines.

What can you not do after Rhinoplasty treatment?

Rhinoplasty is a surgery that the patient undergoes in an operating room, fully sedated. So there are some crucial points one needs to watch out after the operation and in following days. The patients stays usually 1 night at the hospital and since there may be feeling of nausea after the sedation, rhinoplasty patients need to take it slow for a few days after the treatment. Using cold press as much as possible and keeping your head high would help with swelling.

The first week is the hardest period because there may be some bruising and/or swelling after the operation, especially around the eyes. It is advised to plan a light social week after the surgery. The splint is removed within the first week of the surgery so if the patient has no bruising or swelling, there are no visible signs of the surgery but if there are, they are healed after 2 weeks. It is advised still to keep daily activities slow and wait until the end of first month to do cardiovascular activities.

Doctors advise to start wearing glasses after 6-8 weeks, depending on the difficulty level of the rhinoplasty and the nose and cartilage within the bone. The first few weeks after the operation the bones are still settling so it is important not to use heavy eye glasses or blow your nose too hard. The swollen nasal tissues may create an urge to blow your nose but resist that urge as much as possible. A new nose will bring a new appearance, possibly self-confidence and a fresh breath. If the nose is well taken care of after the rhinoplasty treatment, the patient will definitely be more than happy with the result.
