ATLANTA RESIDENTS ASK: WHEN CAN I RETURN TO THE GYM AFTER A BREAST LIFT SURGERY?

Breast enhancement procedures are the most commonly performed cosmetic surgeries. Thousands of patients turn to breast surgery to achieve their cosmetic goals when they are unable to attain them through diet and exercise. Still, diet and exercise are an important part of a healthy lifestyle that many patients are eager to return to after their breast surgery procedure. Maintaining healthy lifestyle habits is essential to maintaining your results, but it is important to understand that there will be some limitations on your activities following a breast lift surgery.

WHAT IS A BREAST LIFT?

A breast lift is a surgical technique that eliminates excess skin and fat in the breasts to give them a more lifted, youthful appearance. The breasts begin to sag and droop as a natural effect of aging, especially for women who have larger breasts or have had children. Exercise can help lift the breasts naturally, but it cannot produce results of the same magnitude as a breast lift. During the procedure, which is performed under general anesthesia, an incision will be made around the circumference of the nipple. Depending on the extent of surgery required, these incisions might extend downward towards the bottom of the breasts. Through these incisions, skin and fat will be removed to produce the desired results. Afterward, the nipples can be adjusted so that they rest in the center of the breasts.

WHEN CAN I EXERCISE AFTER MY BREAST LIFT PROCEDURE?

A breast lift is an extensive surgical procedure that requires a significant recovery period. During the first week or two following your procedure, you will have to take time away from work and other activities in order to rest as much as possible and let the body heal. After this time, patients can resume light exercise as long as it doesn’t involve the upper body. Light cardio can be a good option during this time. After approximately six weeks, patients will be fully recovered and able to resume normal exercise habits.

AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR A BREAST LIFT?

If you are happy with the size of your breasts but would like to achieve a more youthful, lifted appearance, you may be a good candidate for a breast lift. To determine if this procedure is right for you, contact us today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Killingsworth of Atlanta Aesthetics.
