When Can I Return to Exercise after Breast Augmentation Surgery?

Some of the most common questions about recovering from breast augmentation surgery are centered on returning to exercise. If you are wondering what kind of exercise you can do after getting breast implants, it is important to talk to your doctor about this before surgery. You will want to discuss with Dr. Farber your expectations about exercising and what exercises and what intensity are currently performing. If you are anxious to get back to your exercise routine post-surgery, you will be happy to know that Dr. Farber practices rapid recovery techniques, which are aimed to shorten the time between your surgery and returning to exercise.

Rapid Recovery Technique after Surgery

The Rapid Recovery technique involves planning ahead. Dr. Farber uses minimal incisions during the procedure and sends you home the same day with instructions detailing your role in the recovery process. With Dr. Farber’s Rapid Recovery technique, you can start with some minimal exercises the same day after a morning surgery. The first day exercises start out with simple arm lifts. Everyone heals at different rates, but it normally takes about 6 weeks before you can return to your normal workout routine.

What Types of Exercises Can Your Do After Breast Augmentation Surgery?

You should definitely speak to your surgeon about the types of exercises that he or she recommends for you. Each person is different so there is not a universal answer that applies to everyone. Doctors usually advise to start out slow with minimal cardio activity and refrain from using the pectoral muscles. The other important factor is to listen to your body. Do not push yourself too far too fast.
