Hi ... Can this 45 deg. addition be added (or is it proper) for the waste drain of a bathroom sink. The sink is a vessel sink and I'm trying to keep the p-trap as high as possible for more usable space below the sink inside the vanity.

It is ok to offset. Factor how much more difficult it will be to snake out in the future by possibly putting a easy to disconnect joint at the tee. Better: a cleanout on the drain in the wall. I've not seen myself at supply house but they make slip joint offsets. Those typically are not code but who cares?

I think Breplum took your drawing to be horizontal, but I am taking it to be vertical.

In which case no, you may not put a vertical offset in the trap arm. The vent takeoff, which is within the wall, must be within one pipe diameter of elevation of the trap outlet.

Cheers, Wayne

OK ... yes I was speaking of the vertical offset..
So this is not kosher? (image)
Is it a code thing or a vacuum or sewer gas thing?

Put the P-trap low, but have it hug the wall. Then use handicapped drain slip joint tubing to run the drainage over by the wall and drop into the trap. See https://terrylove.com/forums/index.php?threads/ikea-plumbing.53028/ #4 and #7. Will your vessel sink have an overflow?
