How long after having rhinoplasty surgery can I be a passenger in a car for 4 hours?

4 hour drive after rhinoplasty
It is generally safe to travel 4-hours as a passenger in a car, even just a day after rhinoplasty, but it is also still highly recommended to stay close (in case there is any concern regarding recovery) for about a day or 2, because travelling can be quite uncomfortable and we encourage rest as much as possible, following any kind of surgical procedure.
