Is the recovery of a nose job the same as if you broke your nose?

Nasal surgery must result in swelling and bruising. The eyelids are easily bruised and swollen with very little trauma. Individual swelling and bruising will depend on the problem treated, surgical techniques needed, after surgery program, and how your tissues heal. External splint and sutures are removed 8 days after surgery. Yes, because in most cases (especially bumps on the nose or hooked nose) the surgeon will break the nose first.
