Top UK Rhinoplasty Surgeon, Julian Rowe-Jones on: When can you take exercise and go back to work?
When to take exercise
After rhinoplasty I would usually advise two weeks off from going to the gym or vigorous exercise. That’s because there’s a chance that you might get a nose bleed, or you might get more swelling so I think it is worth taking it easy physically for two weeks.
When to go back to work
When you can go back to work depends on what work you do. Most patients, for three or four days, I think benefit from taking things easy. You feel like you’ve developed a cold, the nose is uncomfortable, although it’s extremely rare for it to be painful and you’re not likely to be very productive, but there are a lot of people who do work at a computer or work from home and I usually say, after those three or four days, if you gently want to start some light work, that’s perfectly fine.

A Rhinoplasty review
The result is even better than I imagined – a very subtle change that still makes a big difference. I now never have to worry about my appearance or feel awkward that my nose is an odd shape as I did.
Thank you so much! I really am thrilled with the result and feel so good about it. The recovery time was minimal especially when measured against impact.
