How long after breast reconstruction surgery can I return to my regular activities?

Answer

Most patients are able to fly back home 3-4 days after each procedure— and return to a desk job within a week. However, after some of the more elaborate stages, it may take a few weeks till you can return to playing golf or tennis. Of all the breast reconstruction alternatives, fat grafting gives the best possible result. You will regenerate in-situ a new breast that feels and looks very much like the normal breast you lost. And that breast will recover near normal sensation! However, this is still plastic surgery, not magic surgery; we do not perform miracles. Growing back a new breast is a process that will require a few staged procedures over the span of a few months. While there will be no incisions, no cutting, (unless we need to remove your implants) some of the stages might be a bit more elaborate than others.
