How long before you felt good enough for a vacation?

I have a trip scheduled for the 3rd week in February. As of right now my BL/BA is planned for January 11. I'd rather not postpone it because then it would be close to April before schedules would allow it. The other option if the date is available would put me at 8 weeks PO vs 6.

I had a complex revision and felt like I had turned a major corner at 5 weeks PO and was ready for travel. My energy levels had been restored and I felt pretty much back to my baseline. At 6 weeks, I would have been more than ready for a big trip, but I booked our upcoming travel for 9 weeks PO - just in case. Turns out this was overkill in my case. Barring any unforeseen complications, I don't see why you could not travel at 6 weeks PO or possibly sooner. I would double-check with your PS just to make sure. My PS said I would be OK to travel by 4 weeks, however personally, I really did feel better at 5 weeks versus 4 weeks PO. Giving yourself a full 6 weeks recovery sounds like a good idea to me. Bon Voyage!

I am 4 weeks plus 2 days post op from a lollipop lift and augmentation. I started feeling more like myself one day last week. This morning I noticed that my morning boob was just barely noticeable. I have gotten a lot of my energy back but still get really tired mid afternoon. I would think that by 6-8 weeks that I would be okay for vacation. Keep in mind that we all heal differently. Good luck!
