Breast Augmentation / Breast Implants / Anatomic Gummy Bear Implants / Silicone Implants/ Revision Breast Surgery
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 their patients. Your surgeon is your best resource as he/she is most familiar with your medical history and how you will be healing following surgery. I advise my patients no strenuous activity or heavy lifting for 6-8 weeks post operatively.
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 breast surgery.
Best of luck!
Since very surgeon has his or her own post op protocol, speak with your surgeon. Typically, I advise my patients to wait at least 6 weeks before returning to strenuous exercise. Hope this helps.

Post operative instructions
Thank you for your question. As every surgery and patient is unique, it is always best to ask you operating surgeon any questions related to your procedure and your current recovery first. That being said, typically we advise patients to not resume any strenuous actives or exercise for a minimum of 2-4 weeks.

I prefer that patients limit exertion for 3-4 weeks. So no aerobics for that time. You should check with your surgeon.
How long should an exotic dancer wait to go back to work?
Your plastic surgeon will be your best resource when it comes to returning to your specific line of work. He/she will know how you are progressing and whether or not you have experienced any complications. Generally, most patients are able to return to the “desk job” within 5 to 7 days. More strenuous work, for example involving lifting or extensive upper body movement, will require more time off. Most of my patients who dance are able to return to work, without the use of the pole, within one month.
Back to Work After Breast Augmentation
Thank you very much for your question.
Every plastic surgeon has different protocols regarding activity restrictions. I recommend contacting your surgeon, as they know you and your surgery best, and can provide the most individualized recommendations. Best of luck!
Returning To Work After Breast Augmentation
Hello and thank you for your question and photo! All physical activity of any kind is restricted after breast surgery. However, your surgeon can best instruct you on your case. Each surgeon has their own post op protocol.
Thank you and best of luck!
Generally speaking my patients return to a "normal routine" after
the third post op week, but you need to follow the direction of your surgeon only. Good Luck
Resuming Work After Augmentation
There are many variables that influence the answer to your question:
1) The specific of your surgery
2) How well you are healing
3) What your work entails (especially upper body movements)
4) Surgeon preferences
Only your surgeon can guide you as to when it would be safe to remove the strap and resume dancing. Continued close follow-up is essential.
This is a question for your operating surgeon as each surgeon has their own thoughts on the subject. I can only tell you what I would tell you if you're my patient. We tell our patients to keep their heart rate and blood pressure normal for two weeks post surgery and avoid contact sports for six weeks. I do recommend that limit pectoralis contraction through the entire range of motion like in a fly machine. Ask your plastic surgeon about what their preferences are. Good luck.
