5 and a half weeks is plenty of time to be safe to travel provided you are healing well.  If your healing is delayed for any reason, you will be happy if you bought trip insurance.  Good luck.

In my opinion it is never a good idea to have a surgery done with such a short time before you are going on vacation or wedding. You never know how your body is going to react to surgery. In plastic surgery nothing is as simple as can look  and every body is different.

Many patients fly home the day after surgery. I would not have any worries about flying 5 weeks after your surgery.

Good luck with your procedure, and enjoy your vacation.
