 You should ask your Rhinoplasty Surgeon as you are still under his/her post-op Rhinoplasty care and as such really should follow their advice.  My Rhinoplasty patients are asked to wait 1 month, after Rhinoplasty, before strenuous activity.

How long after revision septorhinoplasty can you resume exercise?

In general following septorhinoplasty I have patient wait at least 2 weeks until resuming exercise.  At that time light weights and low impact activities are the best ways to begin.  You want to make sure to avoid any activities or classes in which your nose could accidentally get bumped or hit.   Resume exercise slowly and do what feels comfortable.

Depending on how everything is going, I would expect you could return to gym after about 3 weeks.

Just take things easy to start. Don't expect that you will be able to do your normal workout. If you start feeling uncomfortable then ease things back. There will be plenty of time to go to the gym!!!
