The : The initial surgical recovery is usually similar to the original, but that depends a lot on what was done the first time and the approach used. The longer term swelling may take a bit longer to resolve compared with an initial rhinoplasty. If ear or rib cartilage is needed for the revision you may have some additional incisions to take care of as well.
