How long is the recovery from breast augmentation?
Most of our patients can return to work after breast augmentation surgery at about five days post op. Some like to take a whole week off from work and rest and recuperate. Patients usually report being most uncomfortable at day 2-3, with pain subsiding after and getting better from there.
As always, return to normal working ability will depend on what type of work you do. If your job requires mostly sitting at a desk, a Thursday surgery appointment will usually allow you to return to work on Monday. If you are responsible for doing more strenuous activities, we will discuss with you at your consultation what you can expect in terms of resuming those tasks.
