Tips on Rhinoplasty Recovery
You will be given instructions before surgery on how to care for your nose. You should plan to eat a liquid or light diet the day after surgery. Strenuous activity and exercise should be avoided for at least two weeks and you should avoid putting pressure on the nose, such as sleeping or laying on it.
Swelling will continue to subside and the nose may gradually improve its definition for up to a year after surgery. However, beyond the first week, these changes are subtle and are typically not noticed by those around you.
Projected results can be seen before the surgery is even performed. Computer imaging and simulation are available to help visualize what your nose will look like after the operation. Photos are taken from multiple angles and used to simulate the results we can achieve.
