Return to work after rhinoplasty is typically at two weeks, with a return to gentle exercise around three weeks after surgery. Return to full-scale exercise is approximately at six weeks, and for the shape of the nose to be essentially settled it takes approximately a year.
The main part of the changes however occur in the course of the first 2 to 3 months. Despite that, upon return to work most patients comment that their colleagues have not noticed the operation, even when the changes have been relatively dramatic.
