Thank you for your question.
It is safe and very recommended to use the flu shot before you procedure even more if your going out of your country, 6 week is a fine time to do it.
Best of luck on your upcoming procedure !
With six weeks left before surgery it should be safe for you to get the flu shot. Best wishes for your upcoming surgery!

Flu shot before surgery
I think that it would be safe for you to get a flu shot now as surgery is over a month away.

There is no exact answer to your question. I would say 1-2 weeks so if you do have a mild illness from the shot, it does not interfere with your elective procedure.
Hope this helps.

Flu shot before plastic surgery?
You should be fine with a shot two weeks (or more) before plastic surgery. Remember that the flu shot does not guarantee that you won't get the flu-- it does not cover you against all possible strains of the flu. That said, it's best to avoid any known infected individual as you lead up to your surgery.
