Push ups after BBA
Pectoral exercises after augmentation
But, as far as my routine, I generally tell the patient no pectoral/chest based exercises until six weeks have gone by. After six weeks, the body has formed a stable scar pocket in which the implant sits. Yes, there will be some changes over the next few months, some settling, some dropping, etc., but generally speaking, the scar pocket is strong enough at that time to withstand typical light pectoral exercise without pushing the implant out of place. I would, of course, modify this advice for a bodybuilder or such.
Best of luck!

Physical activity and push ups after br. augmentation
Getting back to the gym and doing excercising is allowable for all patients who are not having a complication. The timing of this varies due to the plastic surgeons suggestions. Telling you NEVER means that your lifestyle would be changed and that is not a suggestion in any of the many thousands of breast augmentations that I have done.
In my practice I have patients back to regular activities and over 2-3 months getting back to EVERYTHING. This procedure should enhance your life in a so positive way. Go to an experienced plastic surgeon and get the straight answers.
Good luck with everything,
Exercise following surgery

Exercise after implants and mastopexy
After 6 weeks, you need to start slow, not because your tissues can't handle it, but your muscle has now lost alot of strength over the last six weeks. If you attempt to exercise at the level you did before surgery, you will be very sore and could tear your muscle causing the need for an even longer recovery.
3 months is probably a little too long for you to have to wait, but every individual is different. I recommend speaking with your surgeon before restarting any exercise program and following their suggestions.
