How Long Does It Take To See Rhinoplasty Results And The Swelling To Go Down?

How long before I get to see the full results of rhinoplasty. I've seen some pictures of post-surgery patients and they still look quite bloated in appearance.

The bruises and scarring will usually disappear completely after a week. However, the bloated appearance typically stays for a month or so. Most of the before and after photos of rhinoplasty are not accurate. In my case, my nose was in the best shape possible a year after my surgery. In most cases, it also takes anywhere between 8 months to 1 year. The first week after surgery is very crucial. Your nose will feel stuffy. However, you must NOT blow your nose. If you can help it, only gentle cleaning is advised. Spend the first week resting and sleeping as much as possible.
