Strenuous Tasks After A Nose Job
If you have a job that’s a little more physical, you can expect to wait longer. This is because it’s recommended to avoid anything which promotes blood flow to the head. This means you shouldn’t be getting back into any sports. You can start thinking about returning to more physical tasks after 3-6 weeks.
Full Recovery After A Nose Job
If you’re ready to get back to your social life, you can expect this after 3 weeks. If you feel comfortable going back sooner, you can use makeup to hide residual bruising after the swelling has gone down.
For a full recovery, expect to wait 6-12 months. This doesn’t mean you will be swollen and bruised for 6-12 months, just that it will take that long for your nose to fully “settle”. With Dr. Stein, you can rest assured that your nose job will go as smoothly as possible and that you’ll be recovered in no time.
