I had a nose job three months ago. How long will it take before the nasal bones are as solid as before?

Usually we say that the bones take 6 weeks to set and be strong again. That said, they may never be 100% of their original strength and the same activities that endanger the nose still do - so be very careful not to break it!
While the nasal bones will never be as strong as they were before surgery, they should achieve most of their strength and stability by 6 weeks. By three months, they are probably as strong as they will be long term.
3 months post op, some advices:
Thank you very much for enquire.
Swelling after a rhinoplasty depends of the surgery complexity.
In this regard, the nasal swelling Post-op It can last from two weeks to two months.
To reduce this swelling, I recommend you perform delicates daily lymphatic drainage massage therapy over the face (around the nose) avoid sun exposure, and take pain/inflamation pills, as your surgeron precribe you.

Nasal Bone Strength
Because nasal bones do not actually reform a bony connection, but instead form a scar-like connection, their strength is technically never the same. However, at three months, they are about as solid as they'll ever be, which is very strong. Best of luck!
