5. Arrange Your Schedule

Most patients find that recovery after breast augmentation is easier than they expected, but you’ll still need a bit of time off from your regular duties. You may need a few days off from work and to avoid heavy lifting for a couple of weeks. Take a look at your schedule and find a window when you’ll have time.
