Rhinoplasty can be performed with local or general anesthesia, and may last between one or two hours. It is normally an outpatient procedure, although in some cases, hospitalization may be required.
As is known, the nose continues to grow as the years pass, so it is necessary not to perform rhinoplasty before the face is fully developed, this can be at least from the age of 18 years.
The patient will hardlynotice any scar, while he/she will see results within a few days. Following the procedure, nose plugs are inserted, and can removed after 24 or 48 hours. The final result can be assessed in about three weeks but we know that the treated nose may undergo small changes for months or even a year.
Recovery is swift, although in some cases bruising may appear, disappearing after a few days.
