I hate my nose. It is pointy and up-turned. I am just curious if a week off of work would be okay?

Recovery after rhinoplasty
Usually one week is adequate for recovery after rhinoplasty. You may still have some bruising and will have some swelling but these are usually not a hinderance. It will take several months for all swelling to resolve. I remove internal and external splints and sutures at one week post op. Donald R. Nunn MD Atlanta Plastic Surgeon.
