What is the recovery time for a typical rhinoplasty?


TOPICS: Chit/Chat; Health/Medicine
KEYWORDS: rhinoplasty
My daughter is attending a wedding 25 days after a possible nose job? How long before she will not have bruising, swelling? Should she postpone surgery?

You may want to inquire about the bruising with the doc. My mom had some plastic surgery and was given a medication to help speed up healing time from the bruising.

She may want to take a look at this stuff. It covers VERY well. Have used it, myself.

Why is she doing it?

She will be unrecognizable to everyone who knew her before.

Everybody is imperfect. Once you start sculpting, where do you stop?

Thanks...the doc mentioned bruising, but said swelling was also an issue. He also mentioned dermablend

The question is how long before a good amount of recovery...2 weeks, 4 weeks...

25 days should be sufficient time. I’ve broken my nose before and usually by about 14 days the bruising and swelling is gone.

Well,,,, 50 years ago I had hot wires shoved into my sinus cavities to open them up. It was fun!/s Didn’t really help either.

Everyone is different but ....

Rhinoplasty Healing Time

The initial rhinoplasty healing time lasts about two to three weeks, with most patients returning to work after about one week. For at least one to two months, avoid strenuous exercise or activities that may cause a blow to the nose. During the rhinoplasty recovery period, be careful not to accidentally hit your nose. Doing so can cause pain, prolong the recovery time, or even move your nose out of alignment. The nose is somewhat weaker than normal until it is fully healed.

I got one in Walls, MS @ Hole in the Walls bar & pool room. Little dude bout six foot, 200 and quick as a ferrett. Swellin’ was gone in a week or so but was black under both eyes for way longer than a month. Snicker snicker yet factual.

Punch her in the nose and break it so she can find out the answers to those questions.

"...ever had a nose job?"

I'm happy to report that my nose has never been gainfully employed. I don't think it ever has even looked for a job. Although it did once volunteer to "spite my face," whatever the hell that was all about!?

8^O

I assume in her 20s/30s? Young folks heal quicker. Have had my nose broken a couple times. Reset it myself once. Not pleasant. You can expect heavy swelling at the site. Black/blue will radiate outwards and make it look as if both eyes got bloused. It will actually worsen for several days post-op. Ice helps. Ibuprofen/Aspirin helps to reduce swelling. 1800 Cuervo Gold for pain. Seriously. Easier on stomach. No need to get drunk. Just sip it morning, noon and night.

Good luck! Should clear up in a period of 2-3 weeks.

I've had all sorts of jobs, but never a nose job.

I'll have to ask my next girlfriend for one.

I was up and back to work the next day - the brusing can last for over a week

I would count on AT LEAST 2 weeks for no visible effects

As a Fr’er since 2005, I was hoping for mature, intelligent replies...

I usually get good replies when I post.

Not this time...

I apologize. That was off base. When I worked in the hospital I had many patients that had rhinoplasty. I don't remember any that had complications...none were done for cosmetic reasons, but for easier breathing...There are many different kinds of rhinoplasty, it depends on how the nose is broken....Both myself and 2 of my sisters have broken noses and not one looks like the other...I didn't know I had a broken nose till I went to the otolaryngolist because of tinnitus... Some had a lot of bruising that went away, as I say, it depends on how the nose is broken and what needs to be done to fix it......again, I apologize.....GG

Well, I didnt mean to single your post out, unfortunately, there were several I could have directed my frustration towards. And I have to remember there is always some humor in even the most serious of topics here on FR.

Apology accepted.

Thank you.
