I have a “piggish” nose. It is upturned so much you can see inside my nostrils. I want a nose job. How long is the recovery time for rhinoplasty? Will I need to remain in bed the following day?
Patients recover fairly quickly from rhinoplasty. I usually remove a patient’s splint at one week and let them start getting back to normal activity with a few restrictions involving lifting, straining etc. Patient’s do not need to remain in bed post operatively.
