Why does it take a whole year before you see the results of your rhinoplasty?
It does not. You will see the results immediately as soon as the cast or splint comes off but then your nose will go through changes for many months and many years to come. There is no “final results.” The results will be slightly different at 1 year and 3 years and 10 years, etc. But you can enjoy the new nose and the new results immediately while the nose heals and gets smaller and more defined in the first 2-3 years and even beyond.
