What happens after nose job surgery?

ANSWER

People usually wear a nasal splint for the first week. You can expect swelling and some bruising around the eyes after surgery that will begin to improve after the third day. It can, though, last up to two weeks.

Expect your nose to have a little swelling, which probably only you and your surgeon will notice. This will go away over the next six months. The final shape of your nose will be apparent after it has completely healed.You may return to your social activities as soon as within two to three weeks without any recognizable signs that you had a procedure done.
