Rhinoplasty Recovery

How long is recovery from rhinoplasty? How long do I need to be away from work?

It only takes a week - 5 to 7 days usually. Absence from work depends on you. If you think you can go to the office with a nose cast, then you can return to work after just a day of rest. The nose cast in talking about is the white cover they put on your nose after surgery. It usually stays on for 5 to 7 days as well. As for physical limitations, you can resume normal activity the next day. Rhinoplasty is an outpatient procedure. Downtime is not very long . It's really the physical appearance of the nose after the surgery that's a bit terrible. Lol. The bruises completely disappear after 2 weeks.
