Undergoing a septoplasty operation is a significant step towards better nasal health and improved quality of life. However, as you plan your recovery journey, one crucial question often arises: When can you safely take to the skies again post-septoplasty? This comprehensive guide aims to provide insights into the factors influencing the ideal time for air travel after a septoplasty operation.

I would like to list what you need to look out for in terms of airplane travel after the Septoplasty operation as follows:

• After taking the silicone splints in the nose (7-10 days after the surgery), you can take a plane trip if you have no problem breathing. However, you should also pay attention to the proposal written in the following articles.

• Patients who complain of nasal obstruction due to edema and crusting in the postoperative nasal passages will be more accurate

• Patients who have undergone a septoplasty procedure must wash their nose with salty water prior to boarding the aircraft (pressure sea water spray is not accepted in hand luggage, you can wash and clean the nose with toilet water spray 1 hour before giving up your luggage) dripping, a gradual announcement, and gradually drinking water can reduce the risk of pressure injury in the ear. If you feel stuffiness in your nose Despite these precautions with you nasal decongestants is appropriate to keep the spray decongestant and squeeze into the nose along with landing announcement (Otrivine Adult Nasal Spray , Iliadin Nasal Spray, Xylo-comod Nasal Spray ... I wrote the names of drugs in Turkey ­čśŐ ).

• Before boarding your plane, you should consult your doctor and if necessary, check for nasal aspiration and cleaning

• It may be appropriate not to drink hot, carbonated beverages and sour cherries, which are served during the air travel and may cause bleeding
