How long does rhinoplasty take to heal?

Many of my Houston rhinoplasty patients will ask how long it takes rhinoplasty to heal.  Dr. Funk normally tells patients they will be social at 8-10 days after rhinoplasty.  This means you can return to work and social activities.  Exercise can be resumed at 14 days.  The nose will continue to be swollen the first several weeks with 10% of swelling resolved at 3 weeks, 25% at 6 weeks, and the majority at 1 year.  Thick skin rhinoplasty patients may take longer for swelling to resolve.  Breathing should be improved after 3-12 weeks.  


Dr. Funk is considered one of the best rhinoplasty surgeons in Houston Texas.
