How common is rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty or nose job surgery is the second most common cosmetic surgery after breast augmentation. Rhinoplasty is an outpatient procedure and recovery time after rhinoplasty is typically 8 days.

Bruising after rhinoplasty is dependent on the patient’s age, amount of work done, and patient’s propensity to bleed. In my younger patients, I would say that the majority have minimal bruising which is resolved by day 8. Older patients may still have mild bruising on day 8 but can easily be covered up with makeup.

The average age for rhinoplasty is typically in the late 20’s but can range from 14 to 70!
