Living an Active Lifestyle after Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation can be a life-changing procedure, boosting your self confidence and helping you look and feel your very best. When choosing to undergo breast augmentation, you should always consider how your procedure will impact your lifestyle. This is particularly true if you are very active and athletic.

Many of Philadelphia plastic surgeon David Bottger’s patients question whether they can continue to live an active lifestyle after breast augmentation.

Breast implants will not prevent you from maintaining your active lifestyle. In fact, you should be able to enjoy all of your favorite athletic endeavors just as much with your new breasts. However, your activity level may impact your decision about the size of your implants.

If you are very active and athletic, you may want to consider a more moderate increase in size to avoid back pain and other issues commonly experienced by women with very large breasts when they exercise. You should also wear a sports bra whenever you work out to provide some extra support.

After your procedure, Dr. Bottger will give you detailed instructions to follow during your recovery. This will include when you can resume exercising. At first, your exercise routine will be limited to very light activity. However, you should not wait too long to start exercising since this will facilitate the healing process. Once you are fully recovered, Dr. Bottger will let you know that it is safe to resume your full exercise regimen.

Doing Your Breast Augmentation Research is an Important Part of the Process

Breast augmentation procedures today offer women many more options to choose from than ever before. It is not simply a matter of deciding whether to get saline or silicone breast implants. You must do breast augmentation research and make important choices regarding the size, shape, profile, and texture of your breast implants.

In addition, there are other choices related to how your procedure is performed, such as where the incision will be made and whether the breast implant will be placed over the muscle or under the muscle. While your unique body type and aesthetic goals will play a major role in these decisions, your preferences will also be considered. Therefore, it is important to do as much research as possible prior to attending your initial consultation.

During your initial consultation, Dr. Bottger will spend as much time as necessary to make sure you understand the many options available to you, and he encourages you to ask any questions you may have. However, by coming into your consultation with a basic understanding of what breast augmentation entails, your conversation with Dr. Bottger will be much more productive.

As part of your breast augmentation research, this website will provide you with some basic information about your breast augmentation procedure.
