Recovery time from Rhinoplasty at 55 y.o.?

Age Not as Important as Your Wellbeing
Age is certainly a consideration when planning cosmetic surgery, but it matters less than your overall health and how well you care for yourself following surgery. Those things will ultimately determine how your results develop. Although it can take up to 1 year for swelling to completely subside, you should have a very good idea of your results by 1 month after surgery. Good luck with your decision!

It is very important that you thoroughly research your surgeon before committing to surgery. It is a good idea to research your surgeon's educational background, online reviews, before & after pictures, and speak with anyone who you may know who has had surgery with that surgeon. During your consultation, make sure that you don't feel rushed and make sure that you have adequate time with your surgeon and not just their patient coordinator or nurses. If the majority of your consultation is spent with someone other than the surgeon, this is usually not a good sign. The most important aspect is to find a surgeon you are comfortable with. I recommend that you seek consultation with a qualified board-certified expert surgeon who can evaluate you in person.
Best wishes and good luck.
