Q) What is the recovery length for rhinoplasty?
A) The recovery period is generally well tolerated by most patients. Patients may have some swelling of the nasal region and some bruising under the eyes which is generally improved in the first week. Quite often a cast is placed on the nose and this is also removed in one week. If the patient has any stitches in the bottom part of the nose on the columella, these are usually removed anywhere from four to seven days. The final appearance of rhinoplasty takes longer to be achieved.
