In brief: We recommend

One week off if you have a desk job.
Physical jobs will require more time off.

In brief: 1 Week.

Every patient has a different experience when it comes to recovering from surgery.
However, breast lifting surgery is generally a very well tolerated procedure, associated with less discomfort than other procedures such as breast augmentation for example. Most patients are able to return to a desk job within one week. More strenuous work may require additional weeks off. Best wishes.

In brief: Breast lift recovery

If you have only a lift with no implants, you may be able to return to a non strenuous job after just a few days.
With implants, you may need a little longer off work. Talk to your surgeon for specific info related to you and your exact surgery.
