No exercise restrictions after subfascial implants
Exercising after implants
Something here doesn't make a lot of sense. Retro-fascial implants are placed above your pectoral muscles, so I am not sure why your surgeon is concerned about your activities at this point. Perhaps he was mistaken about the plane used at your follow-up, or you are mistaken on the position of the implant from his description. Clarify this by getting a copy of your operative report and also exact information on your implants. Once you have this information it might be worth it to see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon closer to home for some advice. You may just have tight tissue, or you may have a capsular contracture which is overly tight scar tissue around the implant. There are some medications that might help, as well as some massage techniques if your implants are smooth walled.
There are many choices that can be made regarding surgery (implant type, surface, position, and post op instructions), and these preferences definitely vary between individual surgeons, and especially when comparing surgeons from different countries. There is a funny saying about surgeons that they are "frequently wrong, but never in doubt". Once other surgeons have access to your records and are able to examine you, your might get some useful advice or reassurance to add to what your surgeon has said.
Best of luck,
