What significant lifestyle changes will I need after I get my nose job? How long should I stay away from physical contact sports?
I suppose it depends on your lifestyle! For most patients, no lifestyle changes are necessary. An exception – I had a patient who was a kick boxer, and he waited until he had completed his kick boxing career before having rhinoplasty. We advise patients that they may return to full activity 6 weeks after surgery. On an individualized, case by case basis, we may allow return to light activity beginning prior to the full 6 weeks.
