I am looking at rhinoplasty surgery and just wanted to know the approximate recovery time.

How long to see the final results and any major side affects?


The recovery time for return to work is approximately 2 weeks for most patients that undergo rhinoplasty. The return to exercise is usually at about 3 weeks. It takes roughly one year to have a "final" result for rhinoplasty.
