It depends on the rhinoplasty, how swollen you are and if your surgeon packs your nose or not. First rhinoplasty I couldn't breathe at all through my nose. After my revision, I could breathe well for a few hours, then it swelled shut and that was it for several days. It's hard, especially if you're not a mouth breather, but you do get used to it. Stock up on lip balm!
