OK to travel by plane 1 month after Rhinoplasty

I have performed Rhinoplasty for over 20 years and allow all of my Rhinoplasty patients to fly 1 week after their Rhinoplasty.

There is no restriction to fly a month after rhinoplasty. Many of my out of town patients fly home about 8 days post operatively. Although in some instances that reconstructive work is done, two weeks of no-flying restriction may apply. You must ask your physician and seek his/her advice. Good luck and good healing.

You should not have a problem at one month. I typically advise my patients to wait two weeks, but many who come from out of the area need to return after one week.

I can see no reason not to go unless you are having healing issues that affect your airway. Then you might have some troublre clearing your ears but, your nose itself is safe.

The only reason that air travel would be affected is that you have sinus problems where the change in pressure could cause issues.  Otherwise I see no contraindication.   Donald R. Nunn   Atlanta Plastic Surgeon.

If you where my patient I would not have an issue with you flying 1 month post rhinoplasty, but you are not, so. But best to check with the surgeon of record.

Air travel after rhinoplasty

Although each situation is unique and only your rhinoplasty surgeon knows the specific details of your procedure, air travel is typically very safe by a week as long as a few basic precautions are taken:

  1. Decongestion of the nose before take-off
  2. No heavy lifting
