Depends: The time depends upon: where on the nose your sustained the trauma, how hard you were hit (did you have a nose bleed), has your nose lost symmetry (even though swollen) if so could be broken.

After a car crash with multiple facial fractures the right side of my face is numb i can still feel hot/cold/pain will the feeling come back ?
Usually: With significant facial fractures to the mid face area, there is usually some trauma to the infraorbital nerve which gives feeling to the mid face/cheek area. The combination of the trauma and subsequent surgery can "put this nerve to sleep". It can last for weeks to months. In rare cases, the nerve may have been completely divided, in which case the numbness may be more permanent. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

How long does the bruising and swelling last after rhinoplasty? I want to get rhinoplasty before my 20th anniversary party. How far in advance should I plan in order to be completely healed from all the swelling and bruising?
Well in advance!: I generally cringe when patients request a procedure just before an event.

What's the recovery time on a face lift? As the years have gone by, i've noticed gravity taking effect on my body. More especially my face. I am currently thinking about getting a face lift however need to know how long i will be away from my job for.
Recovery : Recovery after face lift surgery varies on the specific type of face lift you had, and your body's natural healing ability. Mini lifts (short scar or minimal access) have a faster recovery than traditional face lifts or full face lifts. Generally, most swelling and bruising after facial cosmetic surgery (mini face lift) resolve within a couple weeks. Plan for at least 2 weeks of recovery, especially when combined with upper eyelid surgery, lower blepharoplasty, and brow lift surgery. You may have residual slight bruising or swelling for longer, however, may still be able to go into public without drawing attention. To maximize your cosmetic results, follow the care instructions of your plastic surgeon. Best of luck. Dr. Chaboki. ...Read moreSee 7 more doctor answers

Knee swelling: Hi SSantiago, no pain is very reassuring. Other things to check is whether you can bear weight and whether you can flex (bend) the knee more than 30& 60 degrees. If yes, then this is likely swelling from a minor contusion. If no, go see your doctor. Ice and elevation can help with the swelling. Watch out for worsening swelling, pain, and heat coming from the knee. ...Read more

Certain : Certain local anesthetics can have a duration of action of 6 to 8 hours depending on the site of injection. These long acting anesthetics are routinely used in third molar surgery to provide extended relief from surgical pain. If the anesthesia remains the morning after the surgery it may indicate that the nerve in the area may have been disturbed. This is a known consequence associated with the removal of the lower third molars and can result from stretching, compressing or tearing of the nerve. Stretching and compression injuries have better prognosis for recovery, though it may take several months for full sensation to return. Thought injuries typically do not require further treatment, just monitoring. Injuries that involve transection of the nerve can be permanent. It is these types of injuries that may require further surgical treatment. No matter the cause, prolonged anesthesia, greater than a day, require follow-up by the treating surgeon. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
