In general, scar formation requires 6 weeks
to achieve maximum strength. But ask your surgeon what activities he feels you can safely do at which stage of your recovery. Also remember to ease into your activities gradually because it only takes two weeks to decondition but it takes six weeks to recondition. So you won't be able to pick up your routine where you left off, you must work up to it. Enjoy your results and use common sense and your doctor's guidance not to endanger your investment.
