"Hello! I am wondering what could happen if you don’t take it easy after your Breast Augmentation like your supposed to? i.e. vacuuming, lifting more than 5-10lbs, someone said bending over??, etc. My husband had to leave me the day after surgery and I had to take care of myself and the dog for two weeks. I also hear other ladies who can’t quite stop themselves from doing things after the surgery and so I am wondering how bad could it get? And for what duration? I had sub-pectoral, dual plane. "
DR. POUSTI: Thank you for the question and picture. More than likely, no harm has been done with your level of activity after breast augmentation surgery. Generally, however, patients are asked to “take it easy” after surgery to help avoid complications such as bleeding, undesired implant movement, and/or prolonged discomfort. Again, based on your picture, it does not appear that any harm has been done; I would suggest continued follow-up with your plastic surgeon. Best wishes.
