Lifting?

Dr. Michelle Roughton I’m going on 4 weeks post op on Thursday. How much weight can I lift? I just had to pick up my 25 pound niece for all of 5 seconds. Could I have hurt something? I had an anchor lift and implant exchange done

  • At 4 weeks I usually start to back off on restrictions. Ideally you minimize chest work (pectoralis major) for 6 weeks if you had pocket work done. It wants to push your implant down and out. You’re probably just fine and didn’t hurt anything. 

     


    As always – I would be so honored to see you at my offices in Raleigh, NC!
