Questions regarding resuming body building and anabolic steroids following rhinoplasty
The questions that you are asking here should actually be asked of your surgeon. Everyone has a slightly different protocol that they recommend and since you have a surgeon already - call them.
For my patients, I usually recommend waiting until around 3 weeks fo engage in strenuous activities. Steroid usage for body building is not something that I could recommend or support for a multitude of reasons that are unrelated to your planned rhinoplasty procedure.
No weightlifting for 1 month after Rhinoplasty
No, IMHO I do not allow my Rhinoplasty patients to do any strenuous activity that would increase blood pressure and therefore blood flow into the nasal tissue for 1 month after their Rhinoplasty. If they, do and weightlifting clearly falls in this category, they and you risk creating a nose bleed that may require placement of nasal packing that could tear internal sutures, displace nasal bones and ruin the Rhinoplasty results.
Bodybuilding steroids and rhinoplasty
I understand your desire to return to your regular workouts after surgical a surgical procedure. Rhinoplastic surgery is very fine surgery and depends extensively on your post op care and healing process. Besides the fact that as a physician I can not condone the use of steroids; it is a very risky bussiness for you to consume such drugs during your post-operative recovery period. Steroids does limit your healing process and can pausibly cause complications. I also ask my patients to refrain from heavy excercise for about 3 weeks. As always please ask your physician/plastic surgeon what their opinion is.
