When can I workout my upper body again?
Two months post op:You may begin MODERATE IMPACT cardio, such as light jogging and workout classes like Zumba. Core and leg work is also allowed. Still no chest, arms, shoulder or upper back training.
Three months post op:You are unrestricted at this point, but remember to start slow with low weight (low means 2-3lbs!) and high repetitions. Do not do anything too fast or too heavy! Start doing push ups against a wall/counter, then knees and finally progress to the floor. Use resistance bands instead of pull ups. If you do Crossfit or have a trainer, start with a modified workout. REMEMBER LIGHT WEIGHT AND HIGH REPS!

I would recommend that you discuss this question with your surgeon as every surgeon has their own respective post op protocol for their patients. Your surgeon is your best resource as he/she is most familiar with your medical history and how you are healing following surgery. I recommend no heavy lifting or strenuous activity for 6-8 weeks for my patients.
The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.
Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative breast surgery.

or push the implants down and out over time. Planks, isolated arms, and isolated shoulders should be fine, but I would recommend avoiding push-ups and flys permanently to keep the breasts looking their best.
2 months post op, some advices:
Its too early to talk about final.
In my practice, after performing a BA I recommend to my patients to limit the movement of the arms for two weeks. After that, you can move your arms taking care and always with common sense.
In this regard, it's not advisable to carry heavy weights to prevent the implant out of position, and allow the formation of the physiological capsule around the implant, also to avoid pain and breast swelling.
