What is the real recovery after surgery?
Most woman will be able to do almost any activity after 4 weeks. Some women are able to go back to non physical type jobs at 2 weeks or less. If you work,or can work from home, then you may be able to do some or all of your work earlier.The answer to this question often requires individual guidance based on your personal specific needs. You would be surprised how much individual thought is required.
See this video from Dr Burt around this topic below.
You might do an office type job but if you have a 2 year old at home who needs to be lifted up 10 times work might be a small issue for consideration but you might need to consider whether you need help around home. Alternatively if your children are older or you don't have children but you are a passionate horse rider again work may be a minor consideration but who looks after your horse for you might be something we need to talk through. (I have had at least one lady back horse riding at 4 weeks).
This is why considering breast reduction is a collaboration between you and your surgeon.
Everyone's life is different and you will need to talk about your individual needs.
