Prior to breast augmentation, you will want to have an honest discussion with Atlanta plastic surgeon Dr. Mark Crispin about your exercise preferences. While breast implants do not need to interfere with exercise, some options can make certain types of athletic undertakings more difficult. Dr. Crispin will customize your breast augmentation procedure to help ensure your implants to do interfere with your lifestyle choices.
Breast Implant Considerations
Dr. Crispin offers his patients a number of options when it comes to breast implants. These include:
- Breast implant incision – Around the nipple, below the breast, through the armpit
- Breast implant placement – Above the muscles in the chest (subglandular) or below the muscles in the chest (submuscular)
- Breast implant type – Saline or silicone
- Breast implant size
Of these, placement, type, and size will play a role in exercising after breast augmentation.
For most women, submuscular placement produces less interference with exercise. The exception to this is women who lift weights, for whom subglandular placement is better due to strain that can be placed on implants while body building.
Breast implant type and size can play a role in things as varied as buoyancy while swimming and range of motion in sports like golf, tennis, and baseball. Discussing the types of exercise you engage in prior to breast augmentation allows Dr. Crispin to tailor these options, better enabling him to ensure you are still able to perform after your procedure.
It is important to remember that breast augmentation will not interfere with most forms of exercise. Dr. Crispin will work closely with you to ensure the breast implant options chosen are conducive to your lifestyle.
