  1. Hi all! Ive just started a new job relatively recently as a store person on a mine site. This involves lifting heavy objects, unpacking boxes, lots of walking etc... My BA is booked for the 5th of October (under the muscle) as I work shift work I'm not required to return until the 11th as I'm on days off. Please bear in mind I work 14 days on and 7 days off. My current options I'm throwing around are. - Get put on light duties for the following 3 + weeks and work from the Wednesday (the 11th) 7 days post op (get a medical certificate) - Get a medical certificate for another week off from Wednesday and then light duties after that for 3 + weeks. please also take into account I've just started this job and I work with all males whom I'd rather not openly discuss getting a BA with (I mean I'm going to lie about the reason for the medical certificate) anyone been in a similar situation where your options are limited? But you don't want/can't put off your BA. (Flights/accom have been booked)
  2. I've been working at the place I am for about 3 months (office job). I'm going traveling for a month in winter and have scheduled my surgery a week after I come back so I can tell my boss that I'm still traveling While I'm recovering from my surgery. Not sure if that's good idea since the workmates will probably notice the change anyway.. I don't think I'm ready tell my new boss that I'm having boob job done as that can affect his professional opinion about me. What did you tell at work?
  3. Hey guys, I'm nervous about asking for 2 weeks off work. I am a retail manager in a department store, which can be quite physical at times. I have been advised by my surgeon not to lift anything more than 5kgs for 6-8 weeks or reach up high.This is a big part of my job. I will need to be on light duties. My surgeon said he would write me a letter stating these conditions, but I am worried that my line manager will notice that the note is from a plastic surgeon. I am not planning to tell my senior managers about my breast augmentation and I'm hoping no one will notice. What did you tell your work when you wanted time off for your BA? Did you take in a note from your surgeon to say you could only do light duties? I was thinking it might be worthwhile getting a note from my GP? Tell me about your experiences with getting time off and working light duties after your BA What would you do in my position?
  4. I had my BA on friday just gone (8.5.15) at TCI Bondi with Dr Van Ngyuen with 560 CC HP under muscle I have taken until the 22.5.15 off from work and will go back the following day. I have a fairly physical job working in airline food production and have to push big carts, lift large metal trays of food, tubs of plates etc (around 4-6kg at least) . I am worried I havent taken enough time off??? How did everyone go returning to their physical jobs? How much time off did you take? I wish I had a desk job I also didnt tell my boss bc I thought I would be totally fine to go back but am now worried I'm pushing it I have little pain now but am still swollen, can't move my arms too much and just down to taking nurofen for swelling.
  5. Hi ladies! I work in a pretty physically demanding job and I am wondering how long annual leave I should be having after my BA in March. I know there is that 6 week mark but I was maybe hoping to hear from ladies that have had to return to this type of work and wondering how long you have yourselves? Thanks!
  6. I went back to work this week after having 2 weeks off for my BA. I am kind of wishing I had taken 3 weeks off instead but unfortunately that is not financially viable for me to do that. I clean people's houses and I have 4 cleans to do. I am finding I am getting quite sore. Plus my husband put his back out on Tuesday and he can't lift anything at the moment. So, I am finding this is a bit of a tough week for me. I am trying very hard to be careful. My surgeon knew I was taking 2 weeks off to heal but he encouraged me to maybe take 3 weeks instead. Anyway, it is just how life goes. Just a bit sore. Did anyone else with a physical job find it hard after their BA?
  7. Hi guys So i am 11 days pre op. Im going in in the 29th September to have 335cc anatomical textured 'Natrelle' implants under the muscles. Im soooooo excited! I have just finished organising time off work. I work 2 jobs: first job - CLEANER. I have organised to take 2 full weeks off. Im a little worried that won't be enough but there is no way i can afford to take anymore than that.. Any thoughts on this from people that work a fairly physical job? Second job - BASS PLAYER IN A BAND. So this job i play every weekend in a rock covers band. Usually for about 3 hours each gig with breaks. I get the BA on Monday and i will be playing my first gig on Friday of the same week. So really only 4 days down time before i play the gig... I know you are all thinking THATS CRAZY! But i have told the drummer what is happening and she has agreed to carry all of my equipment, drive me to and from the gigs. Also i am allowed to sit down and play so the bass wont be over my shoulder.. Im really looking for any advice people have with dealing with the recovery and still having to work. I know theres people out there that have. You dont have to tell me its too soon. I am well aware of this. I am going to do my very best to be 100% 'still' for the remainder of the 2 weeks (apart from 4 gigs over the weekends)... Any tips or advice would be ace! Thanks guys x

  9. I know this question has been asked a few times but I am really keen to get opinions as my circumstances are a bit different. I work FIFO to a remote site and I work on a long roster. I'm scheduled to go out on my break and get my BA done then return to work after 1 week. I haven't had to apply for leave as this is my normal time off and I don't think I will need extra time off my work is office based and very light duties. Do you think I should be letting my employer know what I am doing going out for surgery? I'm a bit worried if I tell anyone that it will get gossiped about as my workplace is very bad with keeping things confidential and I really want to keep it private. I really appreciate any comments thanks!
  10. So I need to tell my boss how much time I need off work after my BA, I've already mentioned it to him before and he doesn't mind how much time I take off which is great but my dilemma is my sanity haha. I work in a newsagency which doesn't sound strenuous but I have to lift my arms shoulder height over a counter CONSTANTLY! I have to reach over to lazy customers and pick up heavy things to put in bags and move heavy stuff and shelves around and every second Sunday lift really heavy paper bundles in and out of a trolley I'm also on my feet for up 9 hours. I never realised how much I did at my job until I starting thinking of all the things I won't be able to do haha and I don't have the option for "light duties" like I can't tell a customer "nah sorry you're going to have to put your books/paper/whatever in a bag yourself because I can't lift it over the counter..." So my surgeon has recommended I take 4 weeks off and 6 weeks for the paper bundles. Now originally when I was with my boyfriend that sounded fantastic and we were planning a holiday together for me to look forward to. But now I can't think of anything worse I think I will literally go batsh!t crazy being stuck at home for 4 weeks with nothing to do and no one to see! Girls who went under the muscle - on average when could you lift your arms up repeatedly without being in too much pain? Does anyone else work in a job similar to mine and how much time did you take off work? I don't want to push myself I want to go back to work comfortably and not be in pain but I also don't want to lose my mind being at home for 4 weeks I've never had that much time off to myself it's actually scaring me more than my BA. I probably sound like a freaking weirdo but my schedule is so hectic with work, uni, study and used to be time with my boyfriend that I don't like doing nothing!
  11. Hello I'm new here! My names kat and I've been wanting a BA since I was 15! Haha I was just wondering how much time should I take time off work once I get my BA? I've read girls have taken between 3 days-2 weeks off work, but as a waitress, constantly on my feet carrying heavy plates and boards, was wondering if 2 weeks is sufficient enough? Or if I should take less or more time off work? Thank you in advance! (: <3
  12. Hello all! After lurking here on and off for a few months and reading all your excellent posts, I have finally decided on a BA with Dr Tavakoli. I haven't had a consultation with him yet, as once I see him I am sure to want the surgery ASAP, and I am going to need to schedule the time off work a long way in advance. Can anyone give me a realistic picture of how long I would need off work? I have a desk job and need to drive over an hour each way to get to the office. I am hoping to keep my surgery as quiet as possible, so I don't want to go back too soon. Any and all advice much appreciated! x
  13. Hi Ladies, Having my BA in March! Very excited! But, I am only have 5 days off work! I will have my BA on the Wednesday and be back at work by the Monday. My surgeon said this is all I should need... I just wonder if anyone has any tips to help me prepare for going back to on the 6th day after the op! Will I be able to dress myself in normal clothes? We don't have a uniform or anything, I usually just wear blouses (no zip or buttons). I work in an office but have a busy schedule. Any tips would be greatly appreciated! Thanks! MissBuzz
  14. Ok so ive booked a date. I can't believe im considering going ahead with this although its something ive been wanting for a while. My only concern is that i will regret it and then will have ruined the cute little b cups i already had. Hoping i can get through this with no complications & get back to work within 5 days & that im happy with the outcome. well more than happy - i want to be over the moon with my decision. Any support or advice people could give would be great & any feedback on Dr William Puow. 6 weeks to go and i need all the advise i can get.
