When Can I Return to Work After Breast Augmentation?


Many of our Ft. Myers-area patients are busy women with active professional lives. As such, it's important to them that they know when they can return to work after undergoing a breast augmentation.

If you have a job that is not physically taxing, such as a desk job, you can probably return to week approximately one week after your breast augmentation. A more active, physically stressful job might require two weeks before returning to work and another couple weeks before fully returning to a pre-surgery routine.

Dr. Robert V. Mandraccia's highest priority is always your safety. When it comes to recovery, that means making sure you take the time needed to rest and recuperate after your procedure. We understand you want to get back to work as soon as possible, but it's important to follow Dr. Mandraccia's recovery instructions.

Every woman is unique, and so is every recovery process. Your recovery time will be dependent on a number of factors, including:

  • Your body's natural healing abilities
  • The nature of your augmentation (some choices, including a sub-muscular implant placement, require a longer recovery time)

We will answer all of your questions and make sure you understand what to expect after your breast augmentation before you undergo the procedure.

If you're a resident of Ft. Myers or any of the nearby southwest Florida communities and you're considering a breast augmentation, please contact Dr. Robert V. Mandraccia today.
