I’m from Taiwan and have a very thin nose that I would like to enhance as well as fixing flared nostrils. My surgery is scheduled but I haven’t booked my ticket back to Taiwan because I wasn’t sure when I could fly again. How long post surgery should I wait before I get on a plane?
After your rhinoplasty surgery you will be weaker than normal and should not put any unnecessary stress upon yourself, including traveling. Your doctor may not allow you to fly for at least ten days after the surgery because you may be at risk for blood clots. Make sure to explain your situation to your doctor and that you fully understand any problems that may arise.
