Short-haul flights can be taken 2 weeks after your procedure but long-haul flights will need to be avoided for 4-6 weeks. We recommend speaking about any travel plans with your surgeon before booking your procedure to ensure you are healed in time.
Breast Uplift After Procedure
Everyone heals differently so the time you will need to stay off work varies between patients. Most patients return to work 1-2 weeks post-procedure as long as their job role does not involve heavy lifting or stretching.
Exercise should ideally be avoided for 6 weeks however we recommend that you stay active by taking regular walks during the recovery process. Upper arm exercises and swimming can begin after four to six weeks. Always wear a good quality sports bra when exercising.
We recommend that you organise help with childcare for at least the first week after your breast lift procedure. At your 2 week appointment, check with your surgeon to get their advice as they will be able to assess how you are healing. When you start to lift your child again, be sure to lift with your knees, ensure the child is not moving around excessively, do not hold for excessive periods of time and if it hurts or starts to hurt – stop immediately.
