I'm getting engaged the end of August (31st) of this year 2012, and the earliest consult I could get w/ the dr of my choice is on the 23rd of July. Hoping all goes well and to schedule my rhinoplasty surgery for the next week (August 1) (if possible) if not 2 weeks. Would 23-30 days be enough healing time before the party?
Getting Engaged the in 1.5 Months, Is a Month of Healing Enough Time?

Healing Time After Rhinoplasty
Mother nature has to take its course and every patient heals at a certain pace.
However and based on my extensive experience with Rhinoplatsty patients, at about 4 weeks most of the bruising and the bold swelling should be gone given the fact that the patient follows the post-op instructions and enjoys adequate ambulatory care free of complications.
I find it important that a patient be physically and psychologically ready for the surgery with enough time to recover giving the body the required freedom to "rage" and "calm down".
Congratulations on your engagement in advance.
Thank you for your inquiry and the best of luck to you.
