If you love to run – competitively, for exercise, enjoyment or a combination of these reasons – you may be wondering whether breast augmentation is right for you. While breast augmentation does not technically interfere with running, you may want to consider:

  • Breast implant sizeBreast implants that are too large may interfere with your running posture, leading to back pain.
  • Recovery time – After breast augmentation, you will have to wait about three to four weeks before it is safe to return to regular jogging. You must allow this downtime for the incisions and surgical site to heal.
  • Wearing a good sports bra – To prevent bounce and reduce strain to your breast skin and ligaments, get a sports bra designed for high-impact activities. Remember to always replace your sports bra after a year of wear.

During your initial consultation with one of our experienced plastic surgeons, discuss your running activities and lifestyle. Consider factors like whether you run competitively and what your priorities are. Our plastic surgeons can recommend the right breast implant size and other breast enlargement options that will work with your lifestyle.
