Recovery Tips for Rhinoplasty

Generally, our Philadelphia rhinoplasty patients are sent home the day of surgery with a taped splint over the nose as it heals. During this time, medication may be prescribed to help ease any discomfort you may feel post-surgery. Patients are instructed to apply cold compresses to the nose intermittently for three days. Additional tips for a speedy and comfortable rhinoplasty recovery in Philadelphia include:

At two to three weeks after nose surgery from Philadelphia facial plastic surgeon Dr. Greco, patients are able to see a noticeable change to the shape of the nose. The remaining swelling will dissipate within nine to twelve months after the procedure, at which time patients will see the final result.
