Rhinoplasty is a way to reshape the nose, enhancing the look and sometimes the functionality of the area. Recovery is a vital aspect of the procedure. Your rhinoplasty recovery will depend on the particulars of your surgery, as there are many types of techniques that can be used during the procedure.

Generally, after a rhinoplasty recovery period of around one week to ten days, the patient can go back to their workplace and resume their daily schedule. Physically stressful activities should be avoided, however, for a period of six weeks from the date of the procedure, as should anything risking trauma to the nose.
