Breast lift with implants and tummy tuck - activity at one week
- It appears you have had a breast lift with implants and a tummy tuck.
- Your activity has to be guided by your own surgeon.
- Generally I do not allow my breast surgery patients to do more exercise than walking for the first 2 weeks.
- Excessive exercise increases the risk of infection.

Activities post operatively
This question is best answered by your surgeon as he/she has been following you in the recovery process. In general at one week post op you are able and encouraged to walk around as you feel comfortable. No heavy lifting yet. You will be most comfortable sleeping on your back, but use pillows for support. Some good areas to try pillows are under your knees or tucked under one side of your back to help take pressure off. Good luck!
