Recovery time for breast surgery.

I have 100 per cent decided to go ahead with a breast enlargement, and have booked appointments with several clinics to find out more. I wanted to ask if you know how long the recovery time is - as I'll need to book the time off work.

Recovery time from a breast augmentation is pretty quick. You will be up and about within 48 hours of surgery, and depending how active your job is, you should be able to return to work within a few days. Generally speaking, your stitches will be removed after a week to ten days and the swelling in your breasts will go down in 3-5 weeks. Ask your surgeon how long his patients usually take, otherwise, you are your own best judge.
