Just out of curiosity, and if you’re comfortable sharing, has anyone here had minor plastic surgery and how did you request time off?

I had it done in college and just did it over spring break so this doesn’t relate at all but if I were to do it now, I would request time off. Since it’s an elective, cosmetic procedure, I wouldn’t take sick time or tell them it’s for a medical procedure. I would just schedule a one week vacation or whatever time you need for recovery and go about it that way.

I would use vacation time for any serious recovery. Now with wfh and more flexibility it should make the rest of the recovery much easier!

I got my nose done in february when stuff was remote. Took 3 days off before the weekend which got me through the worst of it. I said I was visiting family, they didn’t care too much about the “why.” By monday i was good to go! Of course i had a lot of bruising and swelling but I played off meetings by saying i wasn’t feeling well and everything being remote at that time helped a ton. what are you getting done??

I got a breast reduction (not really minor, technically). After a week, if I did not have to go into the office, I would have been fine. I did take a full 6 weeks of short term disability, but that was because I hated my job. I did interviews while out. Bounced once I came back. Gave them a nice two weeks notice 😎

Do any of you at EY ever have issues actually taking your vacation? Given we work with people across regions on multiple projects at once, who do you ask for approval for longer vacations? I feel like I usually just add it in ARMS and tell people I won’t be there X days. Rarely do I ever get pushback (but rarely do I ever take all my vacation days)
