4 Weeks Post BBA Travel

Flying should not be an issue for you but your Plastic Surgeon will likely advise you to avoid heavy lifting for a time and in my practice that is 6 weeks without lifting over 10 lbs. If you keep activity restrictions in mind while travelling you should be fine.
All the best

Hello, most of my patients who undergo breast augmentation have stopped pain medication after 5-7 days. By 4 weeks most are returning to all normal activities. I think you should be fine to travel 4 weeks after surgery. Good Luck.

As long as you heal properly without complication you should be able to fly  by 4 weeks after breast augmentation.  However it is crucial that you follow the specific advice of your plastic surgeon.  Do not rely on Internet advice.

Thank you for your question.  It is always best to first discuss any questions or concerns you have with your operating surgeon as each surgeon has their own set of unique postoperative instructions.  That being said, typically if a patient has an uneventful recovery experience, that many weeks post procedure you should be fine to travel.With kind regards,
