Travelling for top surgery
It is possible to travel for top surgery. However, you should plan to stay in the city for at least two, and preferably three, weeks post surgery.
Travelling for surgery
When you travel away from home for a surgical procedure, you should be prepared to stay near to your surgeon for 1-2 weeks. Specifically for FTM top surgery, you will be able to come to your post-op appointments via taxicab or Uber. The pain level with this surgery is NOT as severe as with other major surgeries. You will not be bedridden at all.
