Live an Active Lifestyle after Breast Augmentation

Posted on Aug 26, 2014 Breast Augmentation

For women considering breast augmentation, it’s important to understand how this procedure may affect your lifestyle. Breast augmentation can be a life-changing procedure, improving your self-image and self-confidence and helping you look and feel your very best.

Still, many of Dr. Bottger’s Philadelphia patients question whether they can continue to live an active lifestyle after breast augmentation, especially women who are very athletic.

The good news is that with the right breast augmentation procedure, you should be able to enjoy all of your favorite athletic endeavors. Depending on your activity level, however, you will need to give careful consideration to the size of your implants. If you are very active and athletic, you may want to choose a more moderate increase in your breast size to avoid back pain and other issues, but implants themselves should not hinder your physical activity.

During the immediate recovery stage your exercise routine will be limited to very light activity, however depending on your individual circumstances, Dr. Bottger will advise you when you can resume your normal activity. In many cases, exercising can actually facilitate the healing process. If you have specific concerns about your work-out regimen or any other breast augmentation questions, Dr. Bottger can address them during your consultation.
