Usually 1 week after #gynecomastia surgery you can begin taking moderate walks or ride a stationary bike. Strenuous workouts or aerobic #exercise can begin around 4 weeks post-op. Please get approval from your doctor before you begin any workout regimen.
This is a question best answered by your surgeon. In my practice if everything has healed well up to this point, you would be released for full activity.
Recovery after gynecomastia can vary for each patient depending on the severity and complexity of each case. Generally, patients are asked to avoid strenuous activity and heavy-lifting or about 4-6 weeks. This decreases risks of complications. However, patients can exercise within 2-4 weeks, focusing on other areas, like the lower extremities. My patients are asked to wear a compression vest or garmet to help minimize swelling and provide support for at least 4 weeks. Consult your plastic surgeon to determine whether or not he is ready for more strenuous activity. Best wishes.
Generally you are safe to start back to your old workout routines at 6 weeks, provided your healing has been uneventful. It is wise to start out slowly and work back to your old pace as intermittent swelling can happen as you continue to heal. Always follow your surgeons post-op advice and best of luck.
I allow my patients to return to their regular exercise programs after 6 weeks, but you should get clearance from your surgeon. Good luck!
6 weeks is when i let all patients workout
I would still check with your plastic surgeon for their protocol
best of luck!
At 6 weeks you get 80% of the wound's strength so I think you are going to be OK with this type of a work out. Please follow up with your doctor as these issues require the attention of a plastic surgeon.
Follow your Plastic Surgeon's post op instructions. In general, patients usually resume their workout within 4 to 8 weeks post op. This depends on the patient's healing. Best to you and your husband.
Yes, he can do anything feels comfortable doing but if he experiences any discomfort he should reduce those activities. Usually by this time there is no restrictions on activities but I would check with you surgeon just to make sure.
