Is a 24 Hour Plane Flight 6 Weeks After a BBL Safe?

Hi everyone! I am currently scheduling my time for my BBL and the time I have now is planned 6 weeks (6 weeks and 5 days) before a trip I have to Australia, I wanted to know if this was a good idea from the perspective of health risks/complications, fat survival/possibly messing up my shape etc. Thank you!

Is it Safe to Fly for 24 hrs 30 days after Brazilian Butt Lift?


The risk of blood clots after surgery returns to nearly zero by about 1 month after surgery.  However, long plane flights have their own risk of blood clots.  Definitely would recommend staying Off Birth Control pills beginning at least 2 weeks prior to surgery and until your trip is over.  Definitely discuss this with your surgeon and medical doctor.  It's probably a minimal risk, but you want to be as safe as possible. 

Good Luck with your surgery.
