Can I properly care for my toddler after breast augmentation?
After a breast augmentation surgery, we recommend that the patients do not use their arms to do heavy weight lifting or intense activities for about two to four weeks. So if a patient has a young child and needs to be picked up from the floor or the crib, we would recommend that they don’t do that the first week, sometimes even two weeks after surgery. They can have the child come on their lap or when they are sitting, but the picking up of a lot of weight can actually cause bleeding sometimes and can also affect the healing in a negative way. So we would recommend just taking it easy those first two weeks, including picking up your child or having to carry heavy weight during those two weeks.
