Q.

How long must you wait before you can safely fly after having a sinus lift?

I am going to have a dental bone graft in my upper jaw. I am flying to Budapest to tget the treatment. As you know a dental bone graft involves a sinus lift. I have been told after having a sinus lift you shouldn't do anything that will rapidly raise or lower pressure in your sinuses such as flying. The problem I am having is the conflicting advice on the number of days I have to wait before flying back home. After having my dental bone graft sinus lift how many days should I wait before flying back home?
