Recovery After Rhinoplasty

At the end of the operation, the surgeon places a plaster sheet on the nose that the patient wears for 14 days. In addition, a tamponade inserts into the nasal passages, which the doctor removes after two days. Although the plaster is removed after 14 days, you must wear it for another two weeks. This eliminates the possibility of hurting your nose while you sleep. Three weeks after the operation, it is possible to start loosening the skin on the bridge of the nose with massages. Within 14 days after the process, bruises and large swellings will pass. However, sometimes even six months after the procedure, slight swelling may occur in the nose. After six months, you will see the final result.
