| | How long does swelling last after rhinoplasty? REALLY last?
Ok Ok now this is for everyone out there who's had a nose job or knows someone that has. How long does the swelling really last? I don't mean what the plastic surgeon tells you, I'm talking about how long it truly last. It seems to me the doctors always try to downplay the recovery time when it comes to any cosmetic operation. My friend had a primary rhino and the dr said the swelling would be 90% gone in 6 weeks - yeah f-ing right! That shnoze was still as big as baseball for at least 6 months more like and it took a good year until the swelling was all gone. Is this a unique case or do plastic surgeons really lie when they tell us the recovery time?
