What Do I Look Like After Rhinoplasty?

This is a frequent question that I get asked from potential rhinoplasty and revision rhinoplasty patients. Normally most rhinoplasty patients will look ’supermarket’ presentable in about 10-14 days. I will remove the sutures, tape and cast (if placed) 5-6 days following your surgery. The nose looks swollen that day but, in general, rhinoplasty patients can appreciate the changes that were made even at that point in time. A significant improvement will be seen between that day and the 10-14 day mark to the point that most patients feel comfortable in the public eye. To visually see what I am talking about, the following link is provided so you can see one of our San Diego rhinoplasty patients at 5-6 days out from his rhinoplasty procedure.
