Hi, I’m Dr. Michael Walker from Hill Country
Plastic Surgery Center, and I’m here today on behalf of Expert Village to talk to you
about rhinoplasties or nose jobs. What is the recovery period? The recovery period is
usually about a week. There’s a lot of swelling the first two or three days, and that subsides
over about a week. Most patients that have the hump taken off
and the bones re-broken to straighten the nose have a cast over the top with some tape.
That comes off at a week, and the nose looks just fine after that.
