#3: Your Occupation
Patients that have desk jobs can typically return to work much sooner than those with more strenuous occupations. Physical activities that promote blood flow to the treatment area, such as strenuous exercises, should be avoided for three to six weeks following rhinoplasty.
Additionally, men and women who are ‘in the spotlight’ may want to take more time to fully heal before getting back to work. The majority of post-surgical swelling typically subsides within the first three weeks. We recommend postponing any major social events until around week three of recovery.
