I work in construction, what is considered an adequate amount of time until I can return to work after breast augmentation?
I am a Crew Lead at an Insulation Company in Massachusetts. I run my own insulation jobs with 1 or 2 helpers and I'm also a smoker. I got 450cc Saline implants under the muscle and it's been exactly 4 weeks post-operative. However, I still feel a lot of muscle tightening just from doing little things around the house that are less than 10 pounds. I'm expected to return to work in about 2 weeks, which means lifting between 10 to 40 pounds on a regular basis. My surgeon was not very informative and seems uninterested in getting to know his patients. (In his defense, this place was cheap and extremely overcrowded with people from all over the world). Please tell me I can return to work safely! I'd truly hate to find a new field.
