Time off work for BA

Recommended Posts

Hey Girls, I was wondering how much time you all took off work for under the muscle BA.

I'm a beauty therapist and I took 2 weeks off because everything is all upper body movement and for the 1st couple of days back they got pretty sore.

My boss and a lot of clients at work think its strange that I took so much time off and saying that its unusual and that its not the experience their friends had but I find the entire time off necessary.

My boss is giving me ***** so now I feel like a sook. Was it weird that it took me that long to be back at work?

For my first BA I took 2 weeks off, 

second BA I'm taking a month off.

I only have a desk job, so not physical at all.

but I wouldn't be taking less than 2 weeks. 

Is the recovery period longer for replacement? just for future reference :p

No I don't think so, I'm probably just being lazy lol.

I had 920ccs though so my surgeon recommend taking as long as I can off just for it being a decent size implant. :) 

I don't see any issue with having 2 weeks off though, from most girls I know who have a BA that's the standard time they take :)

I'm a stay at home mum so I can't tell you from my experience, however my friend is a beauty therapist she went back after a month and ended up doing damage as its repetative movements doing waxing etc she had to have another lot of surgery as she did some damage and had to have 6 weeks off work the second time

I'd need a year to recover if I had that size haha!

Thanks that's reassuring :)

yeh she ended up getting a certificate from the doctor that she could go to work but it would be light desk duties (which there are none at a beauty therapist) her boss was the same and not very understanding at all... Then her boss  was wen more made when she had to have another 6 weeks off after her revision surgery... Maybe ask the doctor to write a medical certificate for you... I doubt they will clear you to go bak to work after a week or two

I have unders and I got a certificate for 4 weeks, then took another 2 weeks as annual leave, plus have another 2 weeks on light duties. My recovery has been very slow though.

I was talking to a hairdresser recently who had unders 2 years ago and she said she had 3 weeks off and struggled back at work the first week. I assume beauty therapy would be similar?

Um, have they had a BA?! If they had they'd completely understand - it's major surgery?! :/

i took 3 weeks off i work in a factory doing manual handling all day, some repetitive movements depending on what job i am doing. I was really sore for the first week my back and neck were so painful i wished i had taken at least a month

even now at 8 weeks i go home sore some days,  i took some panadol last nite after a hard day of work, i think people dont realize it is major surgery i was certainly not prepared for how long and hard recovery was/is

I got the same cert but I've gone straight back into waxing and everything (the receptionist at TCI told me I could only get a cert for  2 weeks )and I'm actually a little bit worried now that you have told me about your friend coz my boobs feel tight and sore at the end of the day, hope its not CC :/

Bosses in Beauty therapy are always assholes I'm sure you friend can concur lol

I have a desk job and have 2 weeks. 1st week back was uncomfortable but tolerable. Couldn't of gone back any sooner, so glad I ended booking in two weeks instead of the 1 I was going to. Everyone's different and you're definitely not a sook!
