How long should I wait to start exercising after rhinoplasty? I had my procedure exactly 15 days ago and have had no issues whatsoever, no bleeding, no pain, just numbness.
How Long After Rhinoplasty Can You Start Exercising?

Okay to exercise two weeks after rhinoplasty
It is important to refrain from any exercise after a nose job for at least two weeks. This is to prevent a hemorrhage and/or a nosebleed.

Exercise after Rhinolasty
Generally, I advise my patients to avoid strenuous activity for 2-3 weeks after rhinoplasty. I define "strenuous" as anything that raises a patient's blood pressure, pulse, or breathing rate. They are told to avoid nasal trauma for 6 weeks after surgery.
I allow my patients to resume unlimited physical activity 3 weeks following Rhinoplasty Surgery.
You should ask your surgeon for specific advice after your surgery. I have seen nose-bleeds any time within 3 weeks following nose job surgery. For this reason, I ask my patients to refrain from working out for a full 3 weeks.
I hope this is helpful for you.

Usually okay to exercise two weeks after rhinoplasty
Every surgeon and every patient is different, but in general I like patients to avoid strenuous exercise for two weeks after rhinoplasty. If a patient were particularly bloody, or had an excessive amount of bruising, however, I might restrict that for longer.
All the best,
