Points from the video:
00:07 – Dr Persky advises to take rest for the first 2-3 days;
00:15 – He discusses how the patient needs to get going easy to avoid any increase in blood flow to the nose after undergoing rhinopasty;
00:34 – He advises to resume all aerobic activities after 3-4 weeks of rhinopasty;
We ask patients after rhinopasty to rest in bed for first two days; they are able to get up to go to the rest room, to go to the kitchen to get something to eat; but other than that, we want them stay down.
After about the third-fourth day, they are able to get up, walk around; they can come to the office, they can walk around the block if they want;
After about 3 1/2 -4 weeks, they can resume all aerobic activities and lifting. Prior to that time, anything they do can increase the blood flow to their nose and increase the risk of bleeding; so we ask the patient to kind of keep it quiet during the first 18-21 days after rhinoplasty.
