Normally, I recommend patients start exercising after three weeks, at which time you will be able to begin your regular exercise routine, specifically aerobic and lower body weight training. Upper body weight training and push-ups should not be done until six weeks after your surgery. These guidelines are put into place to protect your body while it recovers. Any strenuous exercise too soon will increase your risk of developing complications, some of which require another surgery to correct. So, if your classes are cardio and require no upper body training, then three weeks may be okay. However, it's always best to ask your surgeon for their advice first. Enjoy your new assets!
You need to ask your surgeon
This is key. Know what your surgeon wants you to do and then follow through!
In breast augmentation I have chosen to spend time reviewing
photographs with patients to fully understand their expectation of size and
shape. Many times this simply raises
more questions. I will make measurements
and use the implant guides to allow the patient to understand exactly the sizes
that are reasonable for their body type and measurements.

Talk to your doc and listen to your body...
Docs have different suggestions regarding exercise so, while the comments posted here help, I'd check with your doc to get their spin on exercise. Irregardless of that, do listen to your body. Too many young women try to do the superhuman when it comes to recovery and that leaves them frustrated and uncomfortable. If it hurts, don't do it. Good luck.
Exercise after breast surgery.
Most surgeons will let you walk as much as you wish beginning the day of surgery. If all is going well, like jogging wearing support can start at 10 days, and activities gradually increase up to about 6 weeks when pretty much all activities are OK. But discuss specifics with your surgeon.
