A nose job (rhinoplasty) can change your entire life for the better. You might not feel so self-conscious when you go out in public. Here is your week-to-week guide on what to expect during rhinoplasty recovery in Miami.
Rhinoplasty Recovery First Week
Every patient will have their own characteristics in terms of healing power, procedure details and genetics. This is a rather general timeline for what the average rhinoplasty surgery patient should expect. You will usually have a splint, cast, bandage or sutures on your nose. After the surgery, you will experience some mild bruising and swelling. It is advisable for you to use ice, frozen spoons and prescription pain medication to handle these issues. We will usually schedule a post-operative checkup in the middle of the first week. We will remove temporary sutures and check your swelling. Hopefully, the bruising and swelling go down by the end of the first week. You can return to work, the second week.
Rhinoplasty Recovery Second Week
Many of our customers are excited for the “Rhinoplasty Reveal” that takes place during the second week. The splint comes off during this time period. This is when the bruising is down and you can get the first real idea as to how your beautiful new nose will look. Just imagine all of the clothes, you can wear with this beautiful nose. Some patients suggest that you have a makeover before the rhinoplasty surgery. Why? Your face may be a bit tender and you might not be able to apply normal makeup until this second week, so why not prepare ahead-of-time?
