Your own surgeon should be the one advising on return to activities, based on post-op follow up exams. I usually would allow light jogging at two weeks, with a sports bra as protection. Things like weight lifting I would hold off on for up to 3 months.
Revision of the inframammary crease will require significant postop care to minimize recurrence.
Thanks for your question. When patients have already had surgery, I always recommend that they ask postoperative questions to their surgeon because each surgeon's answers will be different. That being said, when I perform IMF correction surgery for a double bubble deformity or over descent of the implant, I place patients on fairly significant restrictions. In my practice, my patients are not allowed any exercise for the first 4 weeks after surgery. Then they are allowed non-bouncing cardio with double sportsbras for the next four weeks. After 2 months light upper body weight training is allowed and patients can start bouncing cardio. Of course I adjust this as necessary for individual situations if necessary. Of note, if my patients are extreme athletes as many women here in Denver can be, then I may even change out the plane of the implant from a subpectoral (under the muscle) one to a subglandular (over the muscle) one to avoid the downward push that occurs every time a pec muscle contracts. Good supportive bras are necessary with this option as there is less support for the weight of the implant when they are placed above the muscle.
I hope this helps.
