In brief: Surgeons vary

Surgeons vary in their recommendations following surgery with some recommending limited activity and compression dressings while some even make their patients sleep on their breasts the day after surgery.
. Inwouldmdiscuss this with your surgeon. An increasing number are adopting a regimen of "rapid recovery" exercises. See video: http://youtu.be/lJs9tr75b70

In brief: Light activity

The most important aspect of the post operative phase of breast augmentation is following the doctors orders.
Too many patients try to do too much right away. Ice packs in the 1st 24-48 hours helps with swelling and pressure. A compression bra helps with muscle pain. Not overdoing your activity the day after surgery, will really make the next few days and weeks that much better.
