I'm considering having a breast reduction and understand if need to weeks of work to recover. Not only am I a little apprehensive about the op but also a bit scared of telling others at work. Whilst I don't care what they think, not looking forward to broach it either. I don't even know if I need to book leave or would it be sick leave. Anyone else gone through this, advice appreciated, thanks

Usually companies only pay sick leave if its non-elective/non-cosmetic.

Check your sickness policy as it should be clearly stated in there .

Book it as sick leave you don't need to go into any detail whatsoever and your consultant will just put "post operative recovery" or something similar on the form if you ask her
