My Eyes Are Bruised During Rhinoplasty Recovery. When Will That Go Away?
Bruising after rhinoplasty occurs in most patients and will usually resolve itself by 10 days during your rhinoplasty recovery. Bruising can occur on the cheeks or under the eyes, and progresses in a typical way: starting off a dark purple then changing to brown and green, and descending down the face during the day when you are standing up and gravity takes effect.
Bruising is an expected part of rhinoplasty recovery and a necessary part of the healing process – and although frustrating for some patients, the best thing to do is be patient and let it go away naturally. If you give yourself sufficient time to heal and don’t have to rush back to social engagements, bruising won’t matter so much.
Small changes to your lifestyle pre and post operatively may help a little with bruising.
