After rhinoplasty, how long would it be until I would be able to go out looking normal?

Your questions answered by our surgeon, Lucian Ion, FRCS(Plast)

Asked on 06 February 2012


After the operation, how long would it be until I would be able to go out looking normal with no swelling/bruising or anything?

On average, how much do nose jobs cost?


Following rhinoplasty surgery, a two-week period is usually necessary for return to work and socialising. Return to exercise is usually at 3 weeks.

This doesn't mean that the swelling is completely gone at this stage, as rhinoplasty surgery takes much longer to reach the end result, but rather that the degree of swelling is compatible with a generally normal appearance.

The bruises following rhinoplasty clear within 10 to 12 days, although there are people that bruise more and may need more time to feel comfortable with their appearance.
