How long do I have to wait to play the French horn after a septorhinoplasty?
Doctor Answers 2
Time to return to playing.
To minimize your risk of problems I would recommend 3-4 weeks as a minimum being resuming play. As your surgeon would know exactly what would need to be done for you, ask your surgeon what they would recommend.

The lips may be swollen and somewhat stiff after surgery and it may take a good 3-4 weeks before you can go back to really blowing on the horn. Best to ask your surgeon.
