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.
