Six weeks is an adequate amount of time to lower your risk of developing a blood clot. With any 18 hour flight, it is prudent to take a baby aspirin, walk around during the flight as frequently as possible and keep well hydrated with non-alcoholic beverages. Check with your surgeon to make sure there are no specific healing issues in your case. Enjoy.

Flying 6 weeks post TT
Hi. Thank you for your question. Generally speaking, you should have no problem travelling after 6 weeks post TT if your wounds have healed well. Just confirm with your plastic surgeon to make sure, since he has a better assessment of your current condition.
