Recovery will be proportional to the extent of surgery and whether or not a concomitant breast augmentation is performed.  Some stitches may need to be removed by post-operative day 7 or 8.  It is safe to assume that at least one week would be required before resuming any strenuous activity.  As a good rule, one shouldn’t lift anything heavier than a gallon of milk for two weeks.  Returning to work will depend on the type of job one has.  Desk jobs can be resumed within a week.  Returning to exercise such as weight lifting or treadmill may take up to a month depending on the extent of surgery.  These details will be ironed out when you meet with Dr. Neavin.
