How much time off will I need?

If your job is sedentary or office-based, it is often possible to return to work within a few days or a week. Many patients in the UK choose to take two weeks off work.

Picking up small children will be difficult for the first fortnight after surgery and you may need to arrange for help during this period. Sexual activity should be avoided for at least the first week following surgery.

In general, listen to your body: if parts of you are still tender to touch you are wise to stay rested.

When will I be able to go back to the gym?

Strenuous activities, especially arm movements, may be uncomfortable for two to three weeks post cosmetic surgery. During this time you may enjoy long walks but a full return to exercise will take longer.

If your implants are under the muscle, you should expect to wait six weeks before going back to the gym and resuming a normal routine. If your implants are over the muscle, you will find this period is a little shorter, often four weeks after surgery.

Saving your energy to heal your body after surgery is the most sensible way to reduce the risk of complications.

Will augmentation affect the sensation in my nipples?

In the vast majority of cases, male chest augmentation will not cause any change in nipple sensation.

As every individual and every case is unique, it is advisable to discuss your needs with your surgeon.
