Will Breast Augmentation Affect My Golf Swing?

Posted January 13, 2015 in Breast Augmentation, Breast Implants, Health & Fitness, Uncategorized

According to statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), breast augmentation is the most popular cosmetic surgery in the United States. However, with the health and fitness conscious society in Orange County, many female golfers in the area worry that undergoing this procedure might affect their game. These golfers, especially those who are trying to reach the level of professional, may be concerned that the size, weight, and position of the breast implants will permanently affect their golf swing.

Patients considering breast augmentation will be happy to know that they can undergo the surgery and continue to pursue their golfing goals without any significant hindrance to their performance. Breast implants are designed to allow patients to continue leading a healthy and active lifestyle after recovery. In fact, the potential effect that breast augmentation can have on their game-day performance is so minute that patients should not be discouraged from considering the procedure for this reason.


It is important to discuss your goals and the timing of your procedure with your surgeon so that you will have adequate time to recover and adjust to your new shape before any big games or competitions. After the procedure, most patients return to work within four to ten days depending on how physically strenuous their jobs are. Regular activities can be resumed within two to three weeks, but isolated chest exercises that directly affect the pectoral muscles, such as pushups and chest presses, should not be resumed for at least six weeks.

Once your recovery is complete, it may take some time to adjust to the new weight and size of your breasts before you’re back playing at the same skill level as before the procedure. Like anything, practice makes perfect, and most golfers easily overcome the small challenge of getting used to how their new chest has affected their technique. After recovery and practice time, patients report that they are back in the game playing 100 percent without any restrictions or impaired strength.

Confidence Has Big Effects

After breast augmentation, the majority of women experience a significant boost in confidence, which helps them in all areas of life. Some even say they their game has improved because they know they look good while they’re playing and are not preoccupied with feeling insecure about their appearance.
