Post op pain: Healing in genioplasty & rhinoplasty combo takes many months... But if you think your pain is not the norm than best to have IN PERSON follow up with your surgeon...

Rhinoplasty: It takes at least a year to recover from rhinoplasty. At this point, things may feel a bit stiff as your body lays down collagen in the operated areas. It will soften with time. Discuss your concerns with your surgeon at your next postop visit.
