Exercise After Alar Base Reduction

Each situation is unique and only your rhinoplasty surgeon knows the specific details of your procedure and should be the person commenting on post-operative questions such as this which may be affected by:

  • whether you have high blood pressure
  • whether there was excessive bleeding during surgery

Moderate Exercise after Alar Base Reduction

I usually tell my patients to avoid strenuous physical activities for two weeks after nasal surgery. However, you should always follow your surgeon's recommendations.
