This is another FAQ video in our breast enlargement series, all about flying post surgery. A common misconception many people have is that when you have implants, you should avoid flying. This is far from the truth. It is perfectly safe to fly post surgery.

However, we do encourage patients to avoid flying for at least two weeks but ideally 6 weeks once they have recovered fully from surgery. Firstly, flying whilst recovering from a major procedure is not going to be comfortable, and will not aid your recovery in the slightest. Secondly, and most importantly, when you are in the operation and under general anaesthetic, you are not moving, so the blood in your legs can become a bit stagnant and you can get blood clots. The same thing can happen when on a plane, as you move around very little. This is more technically known as venous thrombosis. We encourage the use of compression stockings post surgery if you are going to be in situations where you are not able to move around on a regular basis.
