I run on a regular basis and would like to know how soon after my rhinoplasty surgery

Question:

I run on a regular basis and would like to know how soon after my rhinoplasty surgery that I’ll be able to get back to my usual routine? Will I have any issues with breathing while running? And what are the concerns if you start being too active too soon?

Answer:

After your rhinoplasty procedure, you will have swelling on the inside of your nose that will affect your breathing. In general, you should wait three to four weeks to resume a light workout. It takes approximately six weeks for the nasal bone and cartilage remodeling to stabilize. You should avoid any strenuous activity before this time that would risk accidentally hitting your nose. Too much vigorous activity before the nose heals could result in unforeseen nasal injury and a suboptimal result.
