Rhinoplasty in flight attendant

If surgery is uneventful, after two weeks most patients are given permission to fly. One wonders about a possible spontaneous nose bleed, when one is not near medical assistance. By two weeks that risk is small.

I am a Flight Attendant; Can I have a Rhinoplasty?

I am a flight attendant; can I have a rhinoplasty? Your profession will not interfere with having rhinoplasty surgery. I would not say that if you were a professional boxer or martial arts performer; all flight attendants I know avoid physical trauma.

There is nothing about being a flight attendant that would preclude a successful rhinoplasty from being performed. Being in a pressurized cabin does not influence a rhinoplasty recovery or how the nose functions afterwards.
