How soon after rhinoplasty can I fly or exercise?

I am scheduled to have an open rhinoplasty to slightly refine my nasal tip. Is there a certain amount of time I am supposed to wait before flying on an airplane, exercising, or even being intimate with my significant other?

Every physician has a different rule, but I generally allow my patients to fly about 7-10 days after surgery.
