I took about a year to have my procedures done. I knew since I was also getting a Rhinoplasty along with the Septoplasty/Tunbinoplasty I wanted to lose some weight so that my Rhinoplasty could have the best outcome. I had several appointments with Dr. Clark in preparation during this time. I took 2 weeks off of work (probably be 1 without the Rhinoplasty) to recover, mostly from the bruising and swelling. The pain surprisingly was really not that bad. Your nose is sore and you can't touch or even bump it at first.
I am extremely pleased and can't say enough good about Dr. Clark!
