Do You Think Running for Short Distances but Not Very Fast Has Influence on the Shape of Nose in the First Month of Rhinoplasty?

Doctor Answers 5

Exercise is permitted after rhinoplasty.

After the acute swelling has subsided in a couple of days patients may resume athletic activity being careful to keep the nose out of harms way.

Exercise after Rhinoplasty

Exercise of any form is not known to have any adverse effects on the eventual shape of the nose after rhinoplasty. You should resume exercise based on your comfort level and the ability to breathe through your nose.

Running after rhinoplasty

It does not affect the nose in any significant way unless you fall and hit the nose. Regards

Rhinoplasty and exercise

Dear Golnoush,

  1. After 3 weeks, normal exercise is OK
  2. Just be aware that it can cause more swelling to occur (after a workout)
  3. It should not have any long term effects after this time frame
  4. Has it changed for the worse over the past month?

Best regards,

Exercise and a rhinoplsty

Most strenuous activities should be avoided for the first 3 to 4 weeks after a rhinoplasty after that you should be able to exercise up to your tolerance level.
