Nose Job Stages
A brief overview.
If you are considering a nose job we encourage you to have 2 or 3 consultations with a qualified facial plastic surgeon that regularly performs nose jobs. These nose job consultations will allow you to have a good basis for comparison between the different surgeons. You will also find that you will gather more (and different) information during each consultation and this will make you a better-informed consumer. . . . read more.

There may be some discoloration and swelling around the eyes which will typically improve over 5-7 days. One week is usually enough time for returning to work and social activities. . . . read more.
