Recovering from Your New York City Rhinoplasty

The goal of a New York City rhinoplasty procedure is to enhance the appearance of your nose while making sure that it still blends harmoniously with the rest of your facial features. This nose-reshaping procedure is often done in conjunction with a facelift and is recommended for men and women above 14 or 15 years old. At around this age, one’s nose is assumed to be fully developed by then. Dr. Steven Wallach is a Manhattan rhinoplasty specialist who is highly experienced in performing nasal contouring procedures.

Post-Rhinoplasty Helpful Tips

Recovery from any type of surgery varies from one person to another and is heavily influenced by other factors such as one’s current health status.

  • You will most likely be advised to return to work within ten days following the surgery. Mild to moderate exercises could be done in 3 weeks.
  • Avoid sun exposure as much as you can. The healing process of rhinoplasty is longer and it may take a year for the final results to be seen. However, the positive results of rhinoplasty are already noticeable within weeks of the procedure. Be conscientious with your use of sunblock for maximum skin protection.
  • Avoid straining, bending and lifting a few days following surgery. This will help avoid post-procedure complications such as bleeding and infection.
  • Always show up for post-surgery clinic visits. Your relationship with Dr. Wallach doesn’t end after the surgery and should extend to your follow-up visits after the procedure.
