How Long Does It Take to Recover from a Breast Lift?

Posted: March 4, 2021

TRANSCRIPT: Breast lift surgery, also referred to as a mastopexy, can take four to six weeks for full recovery. We usually recommend that patients stay out of the gym with physical activity or exercise for approximately four weeks. If you have a non-stressful job or an office job, most of those women can get back to that in about seven to ten days. I also ask that they avoid driving a car for approximately one week.
