Upper body exercise after implants
Athletic women with implants have specific considerations. Ideally, the implants would be subfascial so there is no issue with muscle activity, but athletic women tend to be thin and benefit from muscle coverage. The dual plane procedure detaches a portion of the pectoral muscle so there are potential issues with that. The best general advice is to limit exercises that isolate the pecs.
