Thank you for your question.If at this point in your recovery you have no complications and the swelling has began to resolve then in my opinion it would be okay to ride a rollercoaster, you just want to avoid contact sports/activities. I would just be cautious of the ones that spin or jerk because you want to protect your nose so you do not cause any damage to it. Ultimately, I would consult with your surgeon and have him clear you just to be safe.
Best of luck!

Activity after Rhinoplasty
Thanks for your question. After 6 weeks, there should not be any issue riding a rollercoaster. Your bones still haven't completely healed in place, so I would be cautious, but I cannot foresee any issues with a roller coaster. Have fun!
Roller coaster and rhinoplasty
By 6 weeks after rhinoplasty, I tell my patients that they can pretty much do anything that they want. I would ask your surgeon his thoughts and follow his instructions.
Roller coaster after rhinoplasty
Thank you for your question. I allow my patients to resume all activities 8-10 days following a rhinoplasty except any activities which may result in injury to the nose such as contact sports. The nasal bones will be fragile for 6-8 weeks. However, this is something you should discuss with your rhino plastic surgeon. Best of luck!
