Nose Surgery Recovery
Following your nose surgery, you will be cared for by the nursing staff in the recovery room. When you are fully awake and comfortable, you will be released to the care of a family member or friend with a list of after-care instructions.
Many nose surgery patients return to work and social activities after 5-7 days of recovery time at home. You will likely wear an external splint and this typically stays in place for 7 days. Many patients “feel fine” after 3-4 days and may choose to work from home if possible. There will be guidelines for after-care including lifting restrictions and limited exercise. We will schedule rhinoplasty surgery follow up appointments in one of our Minneapolis metro area or St. Cloud, MN clinics periodically.
