At Aesthetic Center Jan van Goyen, breast augmentation is a much requested operation. Before a person decides to undergo a breast augmentation, the person in question has often been gathering information for quite some time. This period leading up to cosmetic surgery is important and we recommend writing down all your questions. “Can you exercise after a breast augmentation?” is a frequently asked question.
In general, it takes the body six weeks to recover from surgery. After a breast augmentation During this period, the prostheses grow firmly in the pocket so that they cannot move when you move. This process is called encapsulation.
Sports after a breast augmentation
You can exercise again six weeks after the breast augmentation. It goes without saying that you should be careful with the area you have had surgery on during the first few weeks. The breasts feel very firm at first. Over time this will change and the breasts will feel more and more supple. The shape of the breasts will also change shortly after the procedure.
Build up calmly
It is important that you slowly build up your exercise again. This certainly applies to sports where you use the pectoral muscle a lot. With strength training or swimming, you use the chest muscle more intensively than with yoga or cycling. Let the chest muscles slowly get used to intensive training, which is also nicer for yourself. After a while you will notice that you will return to the old level!
