Healing Time Following Tertiary Rhinoplasty with Ear Grafting

+1

It can easily take upwards of two years for a nose to heal following tertiary rhinoplasty surgery with ear grafting. In the meantime, your surgeon might entertain the idea of a steroid injection to help further guide the healing process.

Rhinoplasty and swelling

+1

Usually a revision rhinoplasty will stay swollen for a logner period of time.  Usually a year and sometimes longer.

Swelling after rhinoplasty

+1

Full healing and resolution of swelling after revision rhinoplasty can take a full 2 years.  Avoiding strenuous activity, alcohol, high altitudes, and sleeping with your head elevated can help hasten the resolution of edema.  It is a lengthy process, though, to see the final result.
