Nasal surgery to correct a patient’s nose can be a very helpful procedure. It can reshape their self-image, offer relief from breathing issues, and more. After rhinoplasty, patients go home and start the recovery process.

In the first two days following your rhinoplasty procedure, you will notice a degree of facial bruising and swelling. Treat the area with care, and in one to two weeks, these issues will have reduced to the point where they are not easily visible. After a time, all bruising and swelling will be completely healed.

Speak with Dr. John Zannis, a board-certified plastic surgeon, for instructions on what to do during your rhinoplasty recovery period. Dr. Zannis will be happy to recommend ways to help ameliorate bruising and swelling. Arrange a consultation – contact our office today.
