Exercises before AUG: Each surgeon will have their own pre operative protocols. I ask my patient to refrain from excessive chest muscle use for 1 week prior to sub muscular implant placement..

Mild or weight train: Mild exercise can be performed up to the day of surgery but if patients are actively body building or weight training their pectoralis muscles, I often suggest they refrain for three weeks pre-operatively to avoid excessive vascularity of the muscle. After surgery aggressive contraction of the pectoralis may distort the appearance of implants placed under the muscle. http://youtu.be/UKLjD3DQK3U
