Post op septoplasty
Flying on a plane after rhinoplasty
- I suggest that my patients wait 8 days before flying on a plane
- I also give them Afrin nasal spray to take before and during the flight to reduce the risk of bleeding
- You should 3 weeks before swimming, but this is also up to your surgeon
