How much time do I have to take off work after breast lift surgery?

The amount of time you need to take off after your breast uplift depends on the type of job you have. If your work involves lots of physical activity you may need to take up to two weeks off, but it will take about four weeks to make a full recovery. If you work an office job or another low to no impact job, then you will likely only need to take one week off.

Your surgeon will be able to give you a more specific time frame in your breast uplift consultation as patient cases vary. You should note that your surgeon may instruct you to wait anywhere from five days to two weeks before you drive again, so if your job involves driving you will need to take that into account.
