Makeup is typically applied 7 days after Rhinoplasty Surgery when your dressing is removed.

In my practice, patients get a post-op concealer kit to deal with temporary bruising related to rhinoplasty surgery. This is applied by our aesthetician the day the dressing is removed, and my patients will use this till it's no longer necessary. I hope this is helpful for you.
