One of the most important aspects of rhinoplasty, a procedure that can significantly enhance the appearance and function of the nose, is the successful management of the recovery process. Proper protection of the nose, ample rest, and adherence to post-operative instructions are essential to reduce the potential for complications and to ensure the best possible results.
Our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Scott Miller, will go over the risks and benefits of rhinoplasty and what you can expect during the recovery process during your initial consultation. Although every patient is unique and your recovery will depend on the specifics of your customized nose surgery procedure, there are some basic elements for which you can prepare. You can expect some swelling and bruising around the nose following surgery. While swelling should fade significantly over the ensuing days, it may take several months for it to go down completely. Pain and discomfort can be alleviated with medication. Casts, nasal splints (if necessary), and bandages are typically removed after about one week. You should keep your head elevated for several days after rhinoplasty surgery, and you should take special care to protect the nose from harm for several months.
Most patients are able to resume normal daily activities within one week from completion of the procedure. Dr. Miller will meet with you for follow-up appointments during recovery to ensure that you are healing properly. While the results of rhinoplasty will likely become noticeable within the first few weeks, patients should keep in mind that it may take several months for the optimal outcome to become fully apparent.
Ultimately, rhinoplasty can resolve lifelong issues you may have had with the function or appearance of your nose. Dr. Miller is committed to providing patients with the most natural-looking nose surgery results possible and helping them attain a smooth recovery.

Rhinoplasty is one of the most popular facial plastic surgery procedures available. The treatment can improve both cosmetic and functional issues you may be having with your nose, addressing breathing problems and/or nasal shape, size, and symmetry. As with any surgical procedure, there are risks and benefits to rhinoplasty. Dr. Scott Miller wants to make sure you are thoroughly knowledgeable about all aspects of rhinoplasty treatment in order to make the best decision for your needs. He will go over the nose surgery procedure in detail with you during your initial consultation and answer any questions you may have.
Here is a brief look at some of the benefits and risks of rhinoplasty:
Rhinoplasty can not only enhance the look and function of the nose, it can also improve confidence and eliminate years of self-consciousness caused by your nasal appearance. Rhinoplasty can:
- Increase or decrease the size of the nose
- Give the nostrils a new shape
- Reduce the nasal tip
- Reduce the bridge
- Enhance the balance and harmony between other facial features
- Have a positive effect on your overall facial aesthetic
- Correct problems associated with a deviated septum
- Improve breathing
All surgical procedures, no matter how major or minor, carry some degree of risk; however, Dr. Miller is a skilled plastic surgeon who works diligently to minimize risks during rhinoplasty surgery. It is also very important to follow all post-operative instructions after rhinoplasty, as any deviations could interfere with the healing process and the overall results.
Risks of rhinoplasty include:
- Complications with anesthesia
- Difficulty breathing
- Discoloration in the skin
- Dissatisfaction with results
- Septal perforation
- Improper healing or noticeable scarring
- Complications requiring a secondary rhinoplasty procedure
