Can Heavy Lifting and Drinking Alcohol Permanently Ruin Rhinoplasty Results?
I had my first rhinoplasty last year. My doctor said I could resume heavy weight lifting after 2 weeks so I did but I noticed minor nasal swelling. Over the course of many months, some scar tissue formed. My doctor did a free minor revision yesterday and only worked on the cartilage, not the bone. He said I can workout in only 1 week this time. Can I follow his advice or could it have been lifting that caused the scar tissue? Also, can too much alcohol a few weeks after surgery ruin results?
