Once the splint is removed at the end of the first week after surgery, your nose will be straight but swollen. It is common to have “rebound swelling”, or temporary swelling of the nose, or temporary swelling of the nose, beginning a few hours after the splint is removed. It takes a few months for all residual post-operative swelling to resolve, but you will see significant results within the first few weeks. In addition, it takes a minimum of one full year (sometimes two years) for your nose to reach its final contour after surgical rhinoplasty. Patients who undergo non-surgical liquid rhinoplasty will see results immediately after injection in the office.
