Recovery from anchor lift with implants

Recommended Posts

Hi Ladies,

just wanting to hear recovery stories of full anchor lift with implants. I am booked for 2 weeks time and just wanting to get my head around what the first few weeks post op will be like. 

My surgeon highly recommends an “active recovery” and suggests back to all normal daily activities (other than lifting anything heavier than 5kg) from the day after surgery. Is this practical? 

I have three kids aged 8,6 and 18mth and am just trying to determine how much help I’ll have. For the first 5 days I’ll have my mother in law and husband on hand to help but after that I will be solo. 

 I also have a have a function I have attend 2 weeks post op. Will I be up to it?

I only had a straight forward BA done a few years ago, and I definitely wasn't back into normal activities for the first 5 days. On the 5th day, I drove only a short distance when I took my kids to the park. We stayed for an hour and I was ready to go home by then. I took 2 weeks off work. I know that everyone heals differently but you wouldn't want to over do things and hurt yourself. "Go slowly" may be your best approach and don't expect too much of yourself during that 1st week of healing. All the best with your surgery. x
