Understand that bruises and swelling must occur. After undergoing Facial Plastic Surgeon Oregon, considerable nose surgery, swelling and fair bruising occur. Each patient and surgical procedure are different. Thus, the severity of bruising and swelling also varies. The apparent swelling usually lasts for 2 weeks. That period is the best time to attempt to shrink the swelling as the tissue healing process is in progress. Swelling in the nose can take years to heal completely. However, within 2-3 weeks, people will not be able to see the rhinoplasty surgery on your face.
Bruises often appear under the eyes for several weeks. Start using a cold compress as soon as possible after arriving home on the day of surgery. Paste the cold compress around and on the eyes, on the forehead and cheeks, as well as in the area around the nose. Do not stick a cold compress directly on the nose. This method is very important to do if you want to relieve swelling. Apply cold compress as often as possible for several days after surgery. However, do not stick ice cubes directly on the skin.
