Healing Time Following Tertiary Rhinoplasty with Ear Grafting

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

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

Rhinoplasty swelling takes 1 year to go.

It takes 1year for rhinoplasty swelling or more to go. Be patient and it will go down.

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.
