Resuming Sex after Rhinoplasty Surgery

Sex after Rhinoplasty Surgery?

We often get asked about what is the optimum recovery time to resume having sex after Rhinoplasty.  Is there a certain amount of time you are supposed to wait before having sex, flying abroad or exercising?

Patients may begin light walking at 4-7 days, start flying 7-10 days following Rhinoplasty (Concern for flying is about dryness so make sure to humidify your nose frequently during your flight), and wait about 18-21 days before vigorous exercise.

Advice

Based on the previous two time periods, you are in the best “position” to determine when you can be intimate.  Our patients are advised to normal sexual activity after 10 days, but they must wait 18-21 days for any vigorous “sex”. Please remember avoid any positions that may cause a bump on the nose!  It’s better to use positions where you are facing each other such as the missionary position, so your partner does not intentionally bump your nose or can spot any increase in redness.  Start off slowly, and in the case of throbbing or increase in swelling of the nose, you should stop or slow down the activity.

Top tips for recovery

Here are the 5 most important tips to help recover as fast as possible:

  1. Avoid any non-essential medications such as aspirin or any medications that thin the blood.
  2. Avoid high dosing any multivitamins/herbal remedies/teas etc that contain high levels of Vitamin E, Ginseng, Gingko Biloba and fish oils.
  3. Ice packs, should be applied to the cheeks for the first 2 days after surgery
  4. Keeping your head elevated will whilst resting will help reduce swelling and speed up the recovery process.
  5. Arnica 30c tablets taken 5 times a day together with the application of Arnica cream will reducing the bruising in most cases that can be comfortably covered with light application of makeup after as little as 3-4 days.

Make sure that you always follow your surgeons’ instructions. The most important thing is never to be embarrassed asking these questions to members of our team at Berkeley Square Medical.
