Are there any vitamins or herbal supplements that will help reduce the swelling and speed the recovery following a nose job? I can only take a very short time off from work.
The “obvious” swelling and downtime and bruising is typically about 5-14 days. The vast majority of my patients only take one week off work. Arnica is an herbal supplement that can reduce bruising and swelling. There are also a list of medications and herbal supplements that should be avoided as they increase swelling and bruising. Pristine surgical technique is important in reducing excess trauma. But your genetics and luck are also a huge part of it. But again, most patients only need to take one week off work.
