Asian Rhinoplasty Recovery
Thank you for your question.
Straining, bending and lifting should be avoided during the early postoperative period. In many instances, you may be able to return to work within 7 to 10 days after surgery. Most normal activities including exercise can usually be resumed within three weeks.
It will be a few months before you can expose your reshaped nose to direct sunlight. Your nose will be sensitive during this time, and you must be conscientious about using a sunblock to protect your skin. If the bones of your nose were altered, it may be a number of weeks before you can wear glasses without special support such as tape. Best of luck!

Recovery Time for an Asian Rhinoplasty.
The recovery from any rhinoplasty, including an Asian rhinoplasty where typically the nose is augmented, should not be more than a couple of days. You may have swelling that will last longer (up to a week) and you may have bruising that can last a while but bruising is easily covered with makeup.
I have added a video that talks about this for you.
I hope that helps.
Most Asian rhinoplasty patients return to daily life activities in 10-14 days
Each person's recovery is different, but most rhinoplasty patients find that the majority of their
swelling and bruising, if they have any, goes down within 10 to 14 days.
However, subtle changes and definition of the nose continue to develop over the
next several months as the nose heals and settles. Your nose may look puffy to you
for 3 to 4 months post-operation, but normal to everyone else. Depending on how
much the nose has been altered, it can take up to one year to achieve complete
Recovery after Asian rhinoplasty
Most patients are pleasantly surprised by the post-operative recovery after Asian rhinoplasty. While bruising is present after osteotomies, for many Asian rhinoplasty patients fracturing the bones is unnecessary to achieve ideal results. Most of my patients will be ready to return to work or school for 10-14 days without any obvious signs of surgery.
Recovery time after Asian Rhinoplasty
In most cases our Asian patients are requesting augmentation of the bridge and tip. This does not result in as much bruising or swelling as a reduction Rhinoplasty involving bone fracturing. In most cases our Asian patients look quite good at the one week mark. Of course it take a full year to heal from a Rhinoplasty but you should be able to camouflage the evidence with in a couple of weeks.
Asian Rhinoplasty Recovery Time
There is quite a bit of variability as to how long post-rhinoplasty bruising lasts. You may not necessarily have bruising at all depending on what is being done during your rhinoplasty surgery.
In general I tell my patients to expect bruising (if it occurs) to last from 7-14 days.

Recovery time for Asian rhinoplasty
Visible bruising and swelling is present for approximately 10 days after a rhinoplasty procedure. Full healing takes a year.
It takes a full year to recover from rhinoplasty. While most of the bruising and swelling is gone after a week, there is some residual selling that takes a while to resolve. You should follow your surgeon's pre and postop instructions to optimize your results.
