What is Recovery Like After Rhinoplasty?

Also known as a nose job, rhinoplasty is a surgery that is performed in order to enhance the function of the nose or to change its appearance for the better. Many people have this surgery done for medical reasons that include snoring, breathing issues, or to help correct defects present at birth.

On the other hand, it’s also considered a cosmetic procedure that offers the option of getting a straight nose or one that is smaller in size, among other things. When you come to our office, the doctor can examine your nose to look at the structure and determine the best method of treatment.

Most of the time, rhinoplasty is a surgery that is done in an outpatient setting. After surgery, the time that it takes to heal will depend on how detailed your surgery is and how long it takes your body to recover, as well as other factors that are and are not controllable.

In time following your procedure, you’ll clearly be able to see the new shape and size of your nose. You’ll also be able to experience the medical benefits from the surgery, such as breathing easier and a decrease in snoring. Try to avoid doing anything that requires a lot of lifting or that puts a lot of strain on your body because you don’t want to get out of breath since this can make you breathe harder.

You’ll want to take it as easy as possible after the procedure and follow all of the instructions. This will help ensure that you have a swift and comfortable healing process. Once you have fully recovered, you can enjoy the results of your rhinoplasty procedure for years to come!
