I'm a week prior to my BA operation. Should I exercise (jogging, doing aerobic, yoga) to increase overall health or should I avoid exercise to avoid muscle tightening which may cause more pain after the surgery? Please advise...Thank you.
Should I Exercise Before Breast Augmentation Surgery?
Doctor Answers 3
Consult with your surgeon
I would recommend discussing this with your surgeon, as s/he may have specific protocols. In general, I ask my patients to continue with their regular exercise regimen, as this will be tabled, after a breast aug for 4-6 weeks afterwards. I agree with Dr. Wallach that starting something novel a week before surgery isn't likely to improve your outcome. Good luck.

Exercise before surgery
Exercising before surgery should really have very little impact on the surgical outcome. I would jsut continue with routine things that you have been doing all along. I would not start anything new a week or so before surgery.
Exercise prior to breast implant augmentation surgery
I pefer my paitents to avoid strenous pectoralis exercises a minimum of two weeks prior to surgery and preferably 6 weeks prior .
