Cosmetic surgery of the nose usually takes 1-1/2 to
2-1/2 hours and may be done either with you asleep under general
anesthesia or awake under sedation. Most incisions are placed
inside the nostrils, but in some cases, a small incision may be made
in the natural creases along the sides or near the base of the
nose. These heal quickly and leave scars that are nearly
invisible. At the end of surgery, a cast will be place on your
nose. If bleeding occurs, a light dressing may be placed inside the
nostrils and removed either the same or the next day. If any
sutures were placed in a natural crease, they are removed in several
days. The cast is usually removed in one week.
Most people are amazed at how little pain there is
after nasal surgery! The most uncomfortable part of the recovery is
the inability to breathe through the nose for several days due to
swelling, which usually improves within one to two weeks. Expect
some swelling around your eyes for several weeks, and as this
swelling subsides, you will start to see the improvements from your
surgery. There are a few special precautions that
will mention to avoid during recovery: bending or lifting can
prolong swelling, therefore this is not recommended for three weeks
after surgery. Running, cycling, or aerobics should not resume for
three weeks. Contact sports should be avoided for six weeks, as it
takes that long for the bones in your nose to fully heal. You may
drive when the swelling subsides enough not to interfere with
vision, and you may fly two to three weeks after surgery.
