What can I expect from recovery?
Recovery is different for everyone, but you can anticipate some general swelling and bruising around the nose and eyes that will start to lessen around 1 week of your recovery. As the weeks progress, swelling will dwindle, but some very minor swelling may persist for as long as one year, depending on the individual—however, the true shape of your new, beautiful nose will be apparent at around 3-6 months.
