Multiple Surgeries and Plane Trips

WIthout knowing a lot more, I can give only two pieces of advice. First, any oral or nasal surgery has the potential of seeding a newly operated site with bacteria. For this reason, you do need to worry about infection of the implants. Secondly, any surgery and any plane trip (or other travel for that matter) increases the risks of developing blood clots in the legs that can dislodge and go to the lungs where they have the potential of causing death. The risk of this after surgery continues for at least a month. You are planning 2 surgeries and 2 plane trips, markedly increasing these risks. I would advise carefully considering your alternatives and the risks, discussing them with both surgeons before proceeding.

Multiple surgeries and travel seems to have excessive associated risks

Your entire plan seems convoluted and not well thought out.  It would not be a reasonable choice to fly to different countries to have surgery in such a rapid sequence.
