I am 18-years-old and a high school senior. I want to have a rhinoplasty during my spring break in March, but I have a big dance to go to in April. Will my scars heal by that time? And would I have to wear the dressing for my nose longer than the two week duration of my break?
As a general rule, you should not plan a rhinoplasty closer than 6 months before a major event, especially is you will be having photographs. In the first 3-6 months after a rhinoplasty, your nose will look more swollen in photos than it is in reality.
