Exercise After Breast Augmentation

Plastic Surgeon Serving Indianapolis, Indiana


If you're like most of Renaissance Plastic Surgery's patients, exercise is probably quite important to you. As a result, you might be curious about how a breast augmentation will affect your ability to exercise in and around Indianapolis. Fortunately, the answer is that you will be able to resume your normal workout schedule.

There will be some required downtime after your breast augmentation, and it's very important that you follow Dr. Joseph Fata's recommendations regarding recovery. Most patients are able to resume vigorous exercise at around the six-week mark. Walking in days and weeks after your breast augmentation can stimulate blood flow and healing.

Once you've recovered, you'll be able to resume the exercise regimen you followed before your procedure. However, if you engage in particularly strenuous forms of exercise, such as long distance running or competitive weightlifting, you should discuss this with Dr. Fata before your procedure.

Knowledge of your habits, hobbies and interests will help us make more informed recommendations regarding choices such as implant placement and size. If you're a distance runner, for example, you might want to consider a smaller implant size.

All of these decisions will be made by a doctor with decades of experience helping women like you who is concerned entirely with your goals and well-being.
