Is It Okay to Go on Rides at Disney World 4 Weeks After a Rhinoplasty?
Doctor Answers (4)
Disney rides 4 weeks after rhinoplasty is acceptable
There are no physical limitations to the rhinoplasty procedure 2 weeks following the procedure. It is important not to play contact sports for at least a month after the procedure, however, it is certainly acceptable to go on rides at Disney World two weeks after the surgery.
Disney World After Rhinoplasty Surgery
If you were my patient, I would say - go ahead and enjoy your time at Disney World. More importantly, I would try and stay cool in terms of body temperature as this helps keep swelling down to a minimum. Happy healing.
Activity after rhinoplasty
I allow my patients to resume full activities except contact sports after one month. Donald R. Nunn MD Atlanta Plastic Surgeon.
