(upbeat music) – [Narrator] During a
rhinoplasty procedure, an incision is made along
the base of the nose and incisions are also made inside the internal portion of the nose to gain access to the internal framework. Following rhinoplasty surgery, patients can usually return
to normal activities, including going back to
work, in two to three weeks. Most people can also go back
to regular exercise habits, cardio and weightlifting,
within four to six weeks. You should know that noses hold swelling a bit longer than other places in the body and you may still have
swelling after two weeks. That’s completely normal and usually barely noticeable to others. To schedule a rhinoplasty consultation at Mayo Clinic Health System, please call the number on your screen. Or for more information, visit www.mayoclinichealthsystem.org.
