you should avoid any strenuous activity for 4-6 weeks after your surgery. Too much initial activity will result in more swelling and it will take longer for it to resolve.

You need to talk to your plastic surgeon

Hello and thank you for your question.  Each surgeon has a specific post-op protocol that enables them the greatest success with their patients. The money you paid for your surgery should include post-operative care. I encourage you to call your surgeon or their office and find out what their recommendations are if they weren't already discussed during your pre-operative appointment.  Best of luck to you.
Sincerely,
Dr. Sean Kelishadi
