I’m half Chinese, half Vietnamese and am contemplating rhinoplasty surgery to fix my crooked nose. What kind of lifestyle changes would you recommend post surgery?
It is best not to engage in any physical sports for at least six weeks. This gives your nose time to heal and time for the swelling to reduce. After about six weeks, your nose will be back to its pre-surgery strength. Also, your surgeon may restrict you from flying for the first ten days post surgery since this may increase the risk for blood clots. Make sure that during your healing period you get plenty of rest and take your medicine as directed.
