OK to go on rollercoaster 9 weeks after Rhinoplasty?

 I tell my Rhinoplasty patients to avoid strenuous activity and direct nasal contact for 1 month after their Rhinoplasty.  After that, they can run a marathon or anything else.  The nose may swell but no permanent damage, to the nose and results should occur.  IMHO, you may feel pressure and there may be some swelling after the ride but other than that, IMO, you should be OK.  However, you should ask your Rhinoplasty Surgeon his/her opinions first.

Roller coasters and rhinoplasty

Nine weeks post rhinoplasty you should still be careful of your nose. Riding a roller coaster increases the risk of of an accident happening causing some sort of trauma to the nose. You should protect your investment and save the theme parks for six months down the road. Best regards!
