Thank you for your question. I do not restrict the workouts of my most my patients prior to surgery. However, if this is something your surgical team feels is necessary for you, you need to adhere to their instructions. If you are confused by some of the instructions call them or make another appointment to see them before surgery for clarification. Good luck with your procedure.
While in my own practice I don't have a problem with my patients exercising the week before their breast surgery, I would not want you to even consider this in your decision making- the only instructions that matter in your particular case are those given you by the surgeon who you have chosen to do your surgery. Don't deviate from what he/she tells you.
Thank you for your question. In my experience I have not found that working out the week before a breast implant surgery causes problems.
However it is very important that you follow the instructions of the plastic surgeon that we'll be doing your procedure.
I don't see any problem with lower body exercising, on the other hand, as for pectoral workout, if your current implant is under the pectoral muscle, there shouldn't be any problems either, as the pocket for the implant already exists. Good luck with your surgery!
Thank you for the question.
You can feel confident in knowing that nothing will happen if you work out before the surgery. For post op, physical activity should be avoided after a 2-3 week period. Always follow your PS's instructions.
It is best to follow the advice of your board certified plastic surgeon. Lower body and cardio workouts are typically fine. If your pectoralis muscles are tighter than usual at the time of surgery, you may experience more pain and or difficulty with surgery. Good luck!
Thank you for your question. I don't see a problem with lower body workouts. Good luck with your surgery.
I don't see any problem working those areas. Just be careful after your surgery to do very limited pec exercises. Activities such as bench press, flies and push ups over time can force your implants to move too low and too lateral (into your armpits). Women typically don't need big pecs to be healthy and attractive. Good luck.
I can see no reason at all for restricting your exercise program before surgery, but I think it's important you follow your own surgeon's advice.
Exercise prior to surgery is fine, but I would not work the pecs too hard in the day or two before. Afterward, your surgeon will advise you about when you can ramp up your workout.
