Rhinoplasty or commonly known as a nose job is a cosmetic surgical procedure that can change the appearance of your nose by sculpting its various components like the nasal bones, the cartilage, and skin.

Recovery can take anywhere from a week to two depending on the severity of the treatment and you’ll start noticing the changes over time as the nasal contour will take time to refine fully. Initial swelling can last for up to a week but can occur sparingly over the year.
You will require someone to drive you home from the hospital where your surgery will be performed and might need to take leave from work for a week or more. It is recommended that you avoid the following activities for a few weeks post-surgery:
A plastic or metal splint will be placed on your nose that will help your nose retain its new shape while it heals and nasal packs or splints may also be placed inside your nostrils to stabilize your septum. Splints and dressings will be kept for up to a week after surgery.
In case of a minor correction surgery, you will be monitored for at least a few hours after surgery and will be allowed to leave later that day. However, if the broken nose surgery is a complicated one, you might have to stay in the hospital for a few days.
You should expect it to take about a year before the final result can materialize. The tip of the nose commonly feels numb after surgery and will recover as soon as the nerves of the skin regenerate.
You will be thoroughly briefed about the possible complications before undergoing surgery to ensure that you fully understand the potential risks associated with a male rhinoplasty. Possible risks include but are not limited just to:
