How long after nosejob is it necessary to wear a plaster bandage?

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?

Any packing or splints will be removed after the first week, although is necessary to wear the splint for an additional week.

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.
