Lifting Kids After Breast Augmentation

You'll probably want to wait for at least 6 weeks before lifting your children. However, please listen to your surgeon. They may have different advice.

All surgeons may have different recommendations depending on the over or over muscle placement. Your best bet is to ask your surgeon but I generally advise a minimum of 2 weeks with good body mechanics when lifting.

Lifting after Breast Augmentation

When you can lift after Breast Augmentation varies somewhat by the technique used. If the implants are submuscular, you will have moderate discomfort and difficulty lifting for one to several weeks. If the implant is over the muscle, my personal choice for most people, you can lift almost immediately, though there will be some soreness.
