Returning To Work After Breast Surgery

Ensuring you look after yourself during your recovery phase is vitally important. This will ensure that your body has time to heal and – of course – look its best.

Recovering after your breast augmentation surgery

All too often, we get asked the same question:

“How soon can I go back to work after my surgery?”

The answer varies, and really it is a personal thing. We generally advise women to wait 5-7 days before returning to work. For some women, it could take longer. Let’s face it; what is a week of your life if it means you are going to enjoy a smooth transition to a healthy body which feels and looks great?

Some people may think that even five days is a little long to wait before returning to work. However, you must remember that breast augmentation is a surgical procedure. For the first few days after surgery, you will feel fatigued and uncomfortable (and maybe even a little bit sore). You need to let your body rest.

You will probably feel some tightness around the breast area as your skin adjusts to your new breast size; it is important not to place any strain on your chest during this time.
