For nurses who have had a TT and BL/BA


  • Specializes in Pulmonary med/surg/telemetry. Has 1 1/2 years experience.

I've had a significant weight loss (still in process) and when I'm finished losing weight my plan is to get a full tummy tuck and breast lift with possible augmentation with implants. I just wondered how long after the procedures you were healed enough to go back to work. I'm currently a nursing student and I know this answer can differ greatly from person to person depending on the type of job done which is why i wanted to hear specifically from nurses. I'll already be working as a nurse or, at the very least, still in clinicals performing nursing responsibilities so I wanted to get an idea of what to expect.

Thanks for any help you can give me.

Best to speak with your primary care provider since each case is different....and we really cannot give medical advice on this forum.

It didn't even occur to me that someone would consider this asking for medical advice. Of course, I am going to speak with plastic surgeons and follow their advice exactly, but since I haven't yet gotten to that point I was just looking for anyone willing to share their experience with me about their recovery after the surgery and working as a nurse. Sorry if if breached any TOS.
