Can I Return to Work 2 Days After a Breast Augmentation and Lift, I Work As a Cashier?
Q:Hi, I’m 21 years, 5’1, 108 lbs. I’m having surgery next month like to know if i can return to work as soon as possible. Thanks
A: Thanks for this question. Most of my patients want to minimize time away from work. My concern is the type of work you do as a cashier. It probably depends on the store, but I assume you are lifting things and moving your arms frequently. You need to talk to your surgeon about the placement of your implants. I usually perform a dual plane breast augmentation which positions the implant under the chest muscle. I am nervous that continual movement of your arms so soon after surgery could potentially displace the implant.
