What to Expect After Surgery
After your nose surgery, you will experience some swelling and minimal discomfort. You should sleep with your head elevated, and Dr. Passaretti may provide a splint to enhance healing and contouring.
Within a week, you should be able to remove the splint, and you will typically not show any visible signs of a recent surgery. Although you will notice changes in the shape and size of your nose immediately after your procedure, it typically takes a number of months for the final results of your rhinoplasty to become apparent. To enhance the outcome of your rhinoplasty, you should follow all post-surgical instructions and attend any necessary follow-up appointments with Dr. Passaretti.
