There is no incompability in the practice of sport for patients with breast implants, except in the postoperative period of 6 to 8 weeks.

However, rest remains essential when anatomical implants were placed due to increase risks of rotation.
Many movements resulting mobilization of the pectoral muscle will hinder the adhesion of the implant to the peri-prosthetic membrane.
Resuming sports too early can also cause the appearance of a seroma (collection of water around the implant).
In conclusion, a rest period should be scrupulously respected during 6 weeks for round implants and 8 weeks for anatomical implants
