Recovery after breast surgery
Although guidelines may vary from surgeon to surgeon, I advise my breast augmentation patients not to engage in any exercise for at least 4 weeks after surgery. This timeline includes a strict guideline of no work, school or other activities for one full week.
It might seem excessive to stay quiet for so long but it really is an important aspect to the healing process. Within that first week after surgery, we really want to give the body every opportunity to heal itself. Spending energy on activities outside of the healing process is only going to prolong the time required to fully recover and may even negatively impact your results. It is also very important that when you return to regular exercise that you approach the activity as if you had never been to the gym before. Listen to your body and don’t push yourself too hard or too fast.
Recovery Time After a Subglandular Augmentation
In my practice, most breast augmentation patients-be it subglandular or submuscular, are able to brisk walk after 2 to 3 days. They may start light aerobic activity at 7-10 days, and they may return to all activities at 3 weeks. I do ask that they start out lightly and work their way back up to full levels and not just try to start right where they had left off before their surgery. However, each plastic surgeon has their own routine that they know works best for them and their patients. Please discuss this with your plastic surgeon before your surgery so you can plan your recovery schedule. Best of luck with your surgery.
Recovery after Subglandular BA
After breast augmentation, regardless of where the incision is made, I generally recommend taking a week off to reuperate. It's certainly possible to get back earlier but you run the risk of doing too much which can result in a little more prolonged discomfort and possibly post operative bleeding /hematoma. I have my patients return to non-impact cardio exercise after 3 weeks, and full exercise after 6. I do not like my patients to do any upper chest or arm weights / stretching for 6 weeks since these activities can push the implant down and outward. Having a subglandular implant could mean that you could get back to these activities a little earlier, around 4 weeks.. Hope this helps. Every Plastic surgeon has their own routine though, so ultimately you should listen to the surgeon you choose to use for your own surgery.

Recovery time after Sub-glandular breast augmentation is typically 4-5 days.
Thank you for your question. Recovery following Sub-glandular breast augmentation is typically easier and shorter than after sub-muscular breast augmentation.
Most patients after Sub-glandular breast augmentation will be comfortable by day 4 or 5 but I recommend not returning to work until a week.
Subglandular Breast Augmentation Recovery Time
Every patient is different when it comes to recovery time but subglandular breast augmentation tend to have a shorter recovery time than the submuscular one.
Usually, the recovery process works its way smoothly and through stages reaching the one month mark where several physical activities could be resumed pretty well with the exception of heavy lifting that I do not recommend unless a full recovery is attained.
Hope this helps.
Thank you for your inquiry and best of luck.

Recovery Time For Subglandular Breast Augmentation With Areola Incision
Hello and thanks for the question.
I recommend you follow-up with your elected surgeon to discuss his or her post-operative recovery routine for breast augmentation surgery. At our institution, we recommend refraining from lifting anything greater than 10 lbs for a period of 4 weeks. Modest lower body exercise may be ensued at 2 weeks and upper body workout restrictions are placed for 4 weeks. In general, most people return to work at a weeks time, but recovery courses will vary from person to person.
Best of luck,

Recovery after sub glandular breast augmentation
Generally speaking recovery after sub glandular augmentation is straightforward. I advise my patients to wear a sports bra for about 6 weeks. Return to work in about in about 6-7 day depending on their occupation and recovery. Return to full activity after 6-8 weeks. I also advise you to follow up with your plastic surgeon and follow his/her instructions. Each surgeon has their own post operative regiment and you have to adhere to the instructions of your surgeon.
Subglandular implant and periareola incision recovery
Each patient will heal differently, but in most cases patient can go back to light duty( desk work) within the week. It takes a few more weeks to go back to light exercise.
Full recovery for all acivities will require 3 weeks
After 2 to 3 days following subglandular augmentation I would permit my patients to return to a sedentary type of occupation. If their work is more physical, such as a hair stylist or waitress they would require 7 to 10 days to feel comfortable enough to perform their duties. To return to health club routines such as jogging and weight lifting I require waiting unitil 3 weeks post surgery.
