Be careful, too much activity could compromise your result!
Working out after Breast Augmentation
How soon can you work out after breast augmentation?
Generally speaking asked patients to avoid significant physical activity for the first 2-3 weeks after breast augmentation. Weight lifting and pushups shouldn't wait at least 6 weeks.

Every surgeon does things differently. You should follow your surgeons post op instructions. It is best to ask your surgeon because he/she knows exactly what was done for you.
- I advise my patients that they can do light exercise two weeks after surgery, like taking a brisk walk.
- I advise that they wait 6 weeks before doing any rigorous exercise.
- You want to avoid getting very sweaty.
At least 2 weeks for lower, 6 for upper
Thank you for your question. You should follow your doctors recommendations. I generally tell patients 2 weeks for jogging, etc. and 6 weeks for upper body exercises with a good support bra.
