Returning to work after revision rhinoplasty
I practice in an area of highly motivated patients. Returning to work is a priority and I have the question of when can they get back to work and exercise after their rhinoplasty surgery. I emphasize that heavy activity can lead to prolonged swelling of the nose after rhinoplasty if that activity is vigorous and too soon. If your job requires a great deal of bending and lifting, which it sounds like it does, you are better off waiting a few more days than compromise the good work you have had done.
Rhinoplasty and return to work
I usually allow patients to go back to light duty a week or two after rhinoplasty. You need to discuss this with your surgeon.
