Rhinoplasty: Q&AAsk a Question
Different Timeline to Return to a Physically Active Job After Rhinoplasty?
I've read that you can usually return to work a week after rhinoplasty. I'm planning to take 2 weeks off, but I'm still worried. I work in a kitchen and it's very physical (and fast-paced!), lifting, bending, loading ovens, etc. I also decorate cakes and must work with my head bent over a lot. I had sinus surgery in 2003 and after 2 weeks still had to pace myself to avoid a pounding headache. How different will this recovery be? Much worse? I will probably have an open rhinoplasty, with a hump removed and maybe some tip work done.
