Is Rhinoplasty a Major Surgery?

Cosmetic Nose Surgery or Rhinoplasty is an elective outpatient procedure. This means that you will be able to go home about 1-2 hours after your surgery is completed and you have awakened from anesthesia. Rhinoplasty does require general anesthesia and typically takes about 2 hours. Therefore, you must be able to tolerate this type of anesthesia and not have medical problems that would prevent you from proceeding with surgery. Recovery after nose surgery is typically 6-8 days.
