Question: I am 28 years old and I am getting married in 4 months. I want to have a rhinoplasty done to fix my nose, but how long will it take for the swelling to go down?
Answer: I have performed rhinoplasty on patients prior to their wedding day in as little as 2 months prior to the wedding. Although full healing will take at least 6 months, after the first 2 months the changes are usually subtle. If your nose is a particular problem for you then I feel that it will look significantly better after your rhinoplasty with 4 months of recovery.
