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.
Alar base reduction recovery
Alar base reduction surgery while relatively minor, does require some recovery. As for recovery and activity level, you should ask your surgeon he is the best person to ask.
