I'm 9 days post op after have breast implants in the dual plane position. I'm desperately itching to get back in the gym and recommence my usual training routine. As long as I avoid chest exercises or overhead exercises would I be ok lifting light weights? I was thinking it would be ok to do some lower body exercises and some arm exercises such as bicep curls? Also how soon before I can practice yoga again? Thanks

How soon can you lift weights after breast implants (under muscle)? I am 9 weeks post op and am really wanting to get back into my classes I take at the gym. Just wondering when I can to weights/kickboxing/cardio.
