Resuming physically demanding activities after plastic surgery

Resuming physically demanding activities after plastic surgery

 

Plastic surgery is associated with pre- and post-operative instructions that should be followed to the letter to ensure a smooth and uneventful recovery period and good results. One of the topics that will be discussed during the pre-operative consultation with the plastic surgeon will be related to resuming physically demanding activities after plastic surgery.

Resuming physical activities after surgery will happen at different times for different patients and accordingly to the procedure that was performed. Generally speaking, patients undergoing more complex and invasive procedures will be advised to avoid strenuous physical activities for longer compared to patients who had less invasive procedures. For example, patients undergoing a breast augmentation with implants or a complete tummy tuck will be asked to delay resuming exercise for longer than patients who had an abdominal liposuction.

We said physically demanding activities and not sports because it is not only physical exercises that should be avoided for at least three weeks after complex procedures and less for easier procedures. Even something as simple as lifting your kids from the ground or picking up grocery bags from the floor and putting them on the table can be considered a physically demanding activity that should be avoided for a while after plastic surgery. By physically demanding activities we mean all activities that have the potential to put unnecessary pressure on the areas operated and trigger pain or other complications such as rupture of the incisions.

As a general rule, the longer the incisions and the area operated wider, the longer it will take for you to resume physically demanding activities.

Even your job responsibilities could include physically demanding activities, and hence your return to work after plastic surgery might happen later than compared to other patients having the same procedure.

Make sure to discuss all the details about resuming physically demanding activities after plastic surgery with the plastic surgeon during the pre-operative consultation as you will need to follow his advice to get satisfactory results after the procedure.

Moreover, even if you get the green light for resuming physical exercises a month after the procedure, this doesn’t mean that you can jump right back to your previous routine. Resuming physically demanding activities after plastic surgery should be made gradually and without putting too much pressure on the operated areas at once. For some patients, it can take months to get to the same level of intensity as they had before undergoing plastic surgery. But this is okay and completely normal. Your main objective after undergoing plastic surgery is to ensure a smooth recovery period and good results. You will have plenty of time to get in shape and resume physical exercises after the recovery period is over, and your body is restored after the trauma of the surgery.

If you notice any pain or an intense discomfort when resuming physically demanding activities after plastic surgery, make sure to monitor the condition and report to the plastic surgeon if it persists.
