Question

I would like to know how long it would take to heal and get better?

Answer

I am assuming that your question is related to rhinoplasty surgery.

Overall, my advice to patients is to take two weeks off work or plan to 2 weeks away from college or university. It usually takes three weeks for return to gentle exercise, and approximately 6 weeks to feel that you can do full-scale exercise.

It takes all in all approximately one year for the final shape of the nose to mature. Nonetheless, even at 3-4 weeks following the operation it is possible to see a good part of the changes.
