• STEP 1-Limit exercise to walking for the first 2 weeks. You want to make sure that your breasts get the opportunity to heal properly after surgery. The best way to do that is by slowly working back into your exercise routine.
• STEP 2 – Resume Light exercises after 2 weeks. You can start using a stationary bike, or dolow impact aerobic exercises.
• STEP 3 – Resume Moderate Exercise after 3 weeks. This may include light running, squats, and lunges, mainly lower body exercises.
Always be sure to check with your surgeon before moving on to the next step.
Taking the necessary time to recuperate is better for your body, and will ensure that you get the best results possible. Be sure to avoid any exercise that will spike your blood pressure or heart rate, as this can lead to complications such as bleeding. Also, pay attention to how your body responds, if you’re doing too much too quickly, your body will let you know.
