Patients may notice swelling and bruising for up to 2 weeks. To guarantee proper healing, Dr. Hughes and his team may provide you with a nose-splint or gauze package. All of the proper steps are taken to maintain the desired image. After receiving a rhinoplasty procedure in Raleigh NC patients may experience one or two weeks of facial bruising.
Results are long-lasting, with full results seen after 1 year once all swelling has subsided. You may notice gradual changes in the appearance of your nose during this time as it refines to a more permanent outcome.
Dr. Hughes is a double board-certified surgeon in both general surgery and plastic and reconstructive surgery. He received his plastics and reconstructive surgery training at Duke University, where he trained alongside the country’s leading plastics and reconstructive surgeons.
