Recovery Time Post Op
This could be a tough call for you because some BA patients feel quite well and able to drive within a few days but if you are still taking narcotic medication or happen to have very sore pectoral muscles, turning the wheel may be too strenuous. I recommend that you discuss your expectations and plan with your Plastic Surgeon,

Driving after 4 days
Hello and thank you for the question.
Typically the standard period of time before I recommend a patient driving full time is one week. And if it is less than 5-7 days, then they must be off of their narcotic medicine, or anything that would impair driving, completely. If you cannot swerve the steering wheel in case of an emergency then it would be unsafe for you to drive. Patients usually are driving as soon as they feel ready, but some still feel the soreness from driving even two weeks post-op.
Ultimately I suggest discussing it with your plastic surgeon to work out a game plan for this.
