What to Expect from Rhinoplasty
During your rhinoplasty consultation, Dr. Kim will explain what you can expect in terms of results. After a rhinoplasty, patients can expect:
- Dramatic but natural improvement
Patients who have been dissatisfied with their noses for years have experienced effective results from rhinoplasty. Rhinoplasty may be the solution for you if you are dissatisfied with the presence of the following nose features:
- Bulbous tip
- Oddly-shaped nostrils
- Lack of tip definition
- Bump in the bridge
In most cases, patients are very happy with rhinoplasty results. In the event that you want further alterations, a rhinoplasty revision can be performed a year after your first surgery.

When You Will See Rhinoplasty Results
Immediately after your rhinoplasty, you should expect to see some bruising persisting for about seven to 10 days.
Although everyone heals differently, a general timeline to expect follows:
- 2-3 weeks: The first significant reduction in swelling allows you to see the initial results.
- 2-3 months: Swelling is reduced significantly, and definition and the new nose shape are visible.
- 1 year: The final results are visible. Your nose will have its most defined shape since surgery.
Although it takes some time to see the final results, most patients enjoy their new look starting a couple of weeks after surgery.
