When Can I Return to Work After a Breast Augmentation?

Vacation and PTO can be precious – and that’s why you want to know how much time you’ll need to take off if you undergo breast augmentation surgery.

If you’re expecting to spend a week or two out from work, you may be surprised to learn that there’s a Scar Less breast augmentation surgery option that could have you back at work in as little as two days.

Learn more about board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Robert Vitolo’s approach to breast augmentation surgery, including how he can get you back to work so quickly after your cosmetic procedure.


Return to Work in Two Days with the Scar Less Breast Augmentation

Dr. Vitolo is one of the very few plastic surgeons in the world who performs the Scar Less breast augmentation procedure almost exclusively. This technique ( also known as the Transumbilical Breast Augmentation -TUBA ) utilizes the patient’s belly button (a natural scar!) to place implants without requiring any incisions around the breasts or within the armpits.

Breast Augmentation Consultations Available


Two tubular channels are made just under the skin in the abdominal fat layer and empty saline-filled breast implants are inserted under the breast tissue or the muscle. The implants are inflated with a saline solution, creating new, lifted breasts. 

Due to the incision-less nature of the surgery, there’s minimal bruising, bleeding, or downtime – meaning patients can get back to work in as little as two days.

Considering that traditional breast augmentation surgery requires downtime of one to two weeks, and it’s no wonder more patients prefer Dr. Vitolo’s distinctive approach!

Professional and very experienced. Highly recommend Dr Vitolo. Will be going back!
