I am self-conscious about my appearance, which is one reason I am having a rhinoplasty. How large and conspicuous are the bandages for rhinoplasty recovery?
Each plastic surgeon will have a different nasal splint or dressing or cast. I have seen ones that cover the forehead and cheeks. I use a very small cute splint that is not bad at all and I do not routinely pack the nose either. But most patients still choose to lay low for the week after their rhinoplasty when they have their nose dressing bandages on.
