I am a very athletic person, and in particular I am on the swim team at my college. I want to have a rhinoplasty over the summer; will I be able to do any summer training in the pool after my surgery? Can the pressure of the water affect my surgery?
You need to take your activities into account. I have many athletes and I tell them that for 2-4 weeks after rhinoplasty I do not want them to do any strenuous activity or anything raising their blood pressure or heart rate and for 3 months I do not want any contact sports. Gentle swimming in the pool is OK after a month but no diving for 3 months.
