Breast augmentation is a common procedure in the spring and summer months. They take approximately 4-6 weeks to recover from before one can continue with strenuous physical activity. The most important time in breast augmentation recovery is the first two weeks following surgery. Patients often begin to feel good after one week of breast augmentation and choose to perform in physical activity, such as returning to the gym. In the first two weeks after surgery it is still very easy to get hematomas. For that reason we recommend only returning to the gym for physical activity after two weeks.
