I had my rhinoplasty exactly 3 weeks ago today. I'm not in a hurry to drink, but out of curiosity, when can I have alcohol?My birthday is in 4 months and I'd like to drink a few beers. If this is a factor, the type of rhinoplasty I had was a masculinization rhinoplasty with implant for the bridge and tip development.
When Can One Drink After a Rhinoplasty?

Drinking 3 weeks post-op
There should not be any problem with moderate drinking a few weeks post-op as long as you are no longer taking narcotic pain medication
Drinking after rhinoplasty
I let people drink wine moderately after 1 week. Having worked in Europe and seen their postop regimens it really didn't hurt anything I've ever seen in drinking earlier than in the US..We as plastic surgeons should have genuine evidence before we restrict our patients
1 Week Following Surgery
When patients resume alcohol consumption, it’s important that they drink in moderation.In addition, alcohol should never be mixed with narcotics or sleeping pills.

There is no restrictions for food, beverages & alcholic drinks after a nose surgery except when you are taking pain killers .Assuming you are not taking any pain killers at this time you can go ahead with your beers at your birthday as long as you are watching out for others not to bump into your nose! Happy Birthday.
When can one drink after a rhinoplasty
Enjoy a few beers on the 4th of July! You are well out of the range where drinking would be a problem. But be careful around others that are drinking too much....your nose is still very much at risk for injury and the biggest possible source of this would be other people. Dr. Shep
Alcohol consumption may cause nasal bleeding after rhinoplasty since it's a blood thinner.
Drinking Alcohol after Surgery
I advise my patients to wait at least one week before consuming alcohol after surgery. After waiting this period of time, drinking in moderation is fine as long as the patient is no longer taking prescription pain medication as well.
