The initial challenges in rhinoplasty recovery is ensuring you still get the results of the procedure while remaining comfortable and able to do as many of the normal activities you are used to. In addition to these considerations, it is also important to know what to avoid doing and habits to hold off from. It can be difficult to stray from your normal habits, but improving the chances of a successful rhinoplasty recovery can be worth it. 

As a general rule, it is important to avoid tasks that can be physically strenuous or intense on your body. This can include lifting heavy objects i.e. large furniture. In addition, avoid standing for long periods of time. 

  • Avoid overexerting yourself 
  • Take advantage of extra rest 
  • Reduce any intense physical activity that may result in injury

Give yourself a chance to physically rest and recover after a surgical procedure. By adhering strictly to this routine for only a temporary length of time, you can improve the chances of a successful rhinoplasty. 

Depending on the procedure and your individual case, you may have to make exceptions, but these can be discussed with your plastic surgeon ahead of time. Generally, it is common to assume that your body may be fragile while recovering from plastic surgery. It is important to respect your physical limitations and allow ample time for a full, successful recovery.
