I am thinking about nose surgery but the idea of wearing a plaster bandage scares me. How long does it have to be worn? When will I be able to go out after the operation?

The plaster bandage has usually to be worn for about a week. Anyway, as far as the "plaster look" doesn't embarrass, the patient can freely go out even few days after surgery.

After the rhinoplasty surgery it's usually necessary to have a splint on your nose for protection. This is removed generally in 7 days after the operation, but if that's ok with you, from medical point of view, you may go out with the splint about 2-3 days after the surgery.

The optimum is 10-12 days until the bones are in place.

The ideal time for wearing the bandage after the nose job would be 7 days and once we remove the bandage it is recommended to wear the splint an other 7 days so over all you need to wear it for 14 days.
