How long after breast re-implant surgery can I start running again?
I am sorry to hear about the complication you have experienced. Always best to run these types of questions by your plastic surgeon ( no pun intended). He/she will know exactly what procedure was performed and how you are progressing. Generally, for patients who have experienced complications of as you have, I would suggest that you "move slow" and listen to your body carefully as you resume activities. It may be 2 to 3 months before you are back to full speed/distance. Best wishes for a complication free outcome that you will be very pleased with.
Surgery and activity
If all goes well, I allow my patients to resume light aerobics in about 3-4 weeks. You are best to check with your surgeon. Good luck.
I appreciate your question.
I would recommend that you discuss this question with your surgeon as every surgeon has their own respective post op protocol for his/her patients. Your surgeon is your best resource as he/she is most familiar with your medical history and how you are healing at this time.
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 plastic surgery.
Best of luck!

I would suggest that you ask your surgeon about when you may start running. Most women can resume full activities, including running, at 6 weeks. You can probably start easy walking at the end of the first week.
