Physical activities after rhinoplasty
I recommend you see your surgeon or at a minimum call your surgeon's office to have that question answered regarding postoperative care. With that said, light physical activity without heavy lifting should be fine 1 week after rhinoplasty. Just avoid perspiring and do not do anything strenuous that would increase your heart rate or blood pressure. It also helps to avoid sodium to bring the swelling down faster. Best wishes!
Limits of activity after rhinoplasty
The recovery after rhinoplasty is slow. I ask my patients for 6 weeks of restricted activity: no hard exercise where they break a sweat. I do encourage plenty of walking with sun protection.
After the cast comes off, the bigger concern are the people around you. A clumsy elbow or flailing arm can do serious damage to a healing nose. It's best to avoid crowds (concerts, festivals, fairs) until your surgeon tells you it's safe. You've made a huge investment in your nose, so protect it accordingly. Safety comes first.
