Soreness with exertion

Discomfort that arises in the post op period can be concerning for any patient. However, pain which arises shortly after physical exertion is very common and unlikely to be a sign of a developing problem (especially in the absence of other symptoms). Other symptoms of a problem (i.e. infection) which might accompany pain include redness, swelling, warmth, drainage, or constitutional symptoms (fever, chills, rigors).

As always, if concerned discuss with your board certified plastic surgeon.

Thank you for your question.

You have to give your body at least 12 weeks to start seeing results and final results can take 3-6 months depending the way your body heals

Soreness after surgery

You can be sore for up to 6 months or longer after surgery. Your over exertion of your muscles probably made you a little more sore than what you've noticed. I don't think it's any cause for alarm. If you have any further concerns be sure to contact your board certified plastic surgeon.
