Hospital stay after Rhinoplasty
I perorm Rhinoplastyand Revision Rhinoplasty, as well as the full range of plastic and cosmetic surgery procedures, in an outpatient setting and have done so here in Beverly Hills for over 20 years. As far as your specific situation, you will have to follow the instructions of your Rhinoplasty surgeon.
Every patient is diferent. Generally if my patients are local they go home the same day even with a rib graft. If they have traveled far they are given the option of a night in the hospital or a recovery facility. If you have good family support go home.
