Hello and welcome to Breast Buddies Adele wavey and congrats on getting approval for your surgery Stars

Was the woman your actual surgeon? I think maybe she may have thought your job involved lifting. Generally having a desk job makes things easier to return to work.

if not....How long you'd need off work will be dependant on how invasive the actual surgery is and generally if you get to have surgery on the NHS its a little more complicated than your bog standard BA, so I'd say two weeks would generally be just fine lovely, there's no need at all for 4 weeks off. You won't however be able to do any heavy lifting for 6 weeks, so if your job did involve lifting your GP will give you a doctors note. It doesn't have to mention the surgery you had if you'd rather be discreet about your surgery. Your GP can just write the reason as 'general surgery'.

If youd like further information about the procedure you might find the information we have in the 'Breast Augmentation Information' section of the forum of interest to you. Its filled with so much to help you better understand the procedure and to help yourself feel better prepared. Any questions or concerns you might have just ask away in the 'General Breast Augmentation' section of the forum were no BA questions ever go unanswered and our lovely ladies will always be more than happy to help you if they can.

Enjoy the forum Adele xx

People can usually return to work after 2 weeks but if you've been advised 4 then yes you should get a doctors note, it won't need to Say what op you've had either. X

Usually for cosmetic procedures they would say it was by choice so you shouldn't get a Dr's note, however with an NHS procedure it's deemed an essential op so you might get a drs note. I'd check with your GP
