Working out and lifting post Otoplasty and Rhinoplasty. Any suggestions?
Doctor Answers 4
Thank you for your question.
At 1 year out, you should be able to work out without affecting your surgical results.

At this stage you are safe to work out without affecting your results - that of the nose or ears - most surgeons allow such exercises from 6-8 weeks
Working out a year after surgery? Yes
After one year's recovery from otoplasty and rhinoplasty there should be no contraindications to a regular, normal work out. Additionally, it is unlikely that exercise after one year will have any adverse effects on your appearance or surgical result. Discuss any persistent concerns with your surgeon for recommendations. Best wishes.

Since you are one year removed from surgery, you are well in the clear to resume lifting weights. So long as the exercises you are performing aren't putting direct pressure on your nose or ears, you should be fine to exercise. Hope this helps!
