Rhinoplasty is capable of providing some pretty amazing results. The thing is, in order to accomplish these results, cartilage may need to be trimmed and bones may need to be fractured or shaved. All this work can be pretty intense on the nasal tissues, which can cause some significant and deep swelling.

The recovery process for rhinoplasty can take much longer than other procedures, but you don’t have to worry about having a swollen and bruised looking nose for months. The bruising and a good bit of the swelling go away after about five days.

Over the next month, a majority of the swelling will have gone away. It will take about a year for all the swelling to disappear.
