Bumpy car drive should not affect post-rhinoplasty nose
You would have to do a lot more trauma to your nose to cause trouble, especially since you are 6 weeks out from surgery. I'm sure your brain must feel a bit rattled, but your nose should still be in one piece. Repeating the trip, presumably for your next appointment, also should not be worrisome. However, that said, if you have concerns, it is never a bad idea to contact your physician.
Thanks for your question. Considering that your rhinoplasty was 6.5 weeks ago, there shouldn’t be any damage that was done to your nose during this car trip. It is important to allow your body to heal for about a month before resuming any physical activity, but since you’ve surpassed that timeframe, I doubt that any harm was done. With that being said, if something doesn’t feel right, I recommend calling to schedule an appointment with your surgeon so that they can see you in person.
Will a Long Bumpy Drive 6 Weeks After Surgery Hurt Your Rhinoplasyt Results?
At 6 weeks your rhinoplasty results are very stable. There is very little that you can do to hurt change
your outcome short of a blow that would injure nose regardless as to whether
you had a rhinoplasty or not. Enjoy you
I hope that helps.
Postop questions after a rhinoplasty procedure
A rough road and potholes will not affect the shape of the nose 6 weeks after a nasal procedure. To damage the nose, patients would have to get hit very hard directly in the nose
Your Drive Post Rhinoplasty
The healing process for a rhinoplasty is lengthy and is completed over
stages. As a general rule of thumb, I advise my patients to refrain from
strenuous exercise or intense physical activity for at least a month
after surgery. It is important that you give your body this time to heal
and relax, in order to ensure the best results and to avoid additional
stress that can affect the proper healing of the nose. However, after
the month and a half of recovery (6.5 weeks) that you cited, you should
be okay to make the drive. The roads, though bumpy and uneven,
shouldn’t affect you this far into your recovery. Still, if you feel any
discomfort while driving or are worried about the implications of your
long drive on your nose job, consult your surgeon(s) and ask for an
individual evaluation of your recovery.
The most crucial period for healing is over. You certainly are able to make this trip again. Consult and trust your surgeons advice and guidance.
