I have not had a consultation yet but wanted to check here first, how long do PS advise not to lift anything heavy post BA? I have a young toddler who is not mobile due to a medical condition and this is one thing I’m worried about, not being able to pick her up for a certain amount of time.
Thanks for your time!
You'll be sore if you have implants under the muscle. Every surgeon is different but ideally you'll take a week or so to yourself without having to lift anything heavier than 5 or so pounds. It's more for your comfort than your ability to hurt anything. I advise folks to avoid pec-specific exercises for 6 weeks (push ups, pull-ups, or planks) but I've never seen any data on that, just makes sense to me. Best of luck!
I would be honored to see you at my office in Raleigh, NC!
