Exercise 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.  Any concerns should be consulted with your Facial Plastic Surgeon.  Best of luck.
