Working Out After Rhinoplasty
The question is, how long do I have to wait before doing a heavy workout? After rhinoplasty, we ask our patients to refrain from heavy lifting, for example going to the gym, or doing an intense workload like going up the Grouse Grind. We suggest they wait for about 2 weeks. And the reason is we really don’t want their blood pressure to be elevated significantly. The nose is a very vascular structure and it can increase the risk of having a nose bleed after the surgery. So we please ask our patients to wait for about two weeks.
