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.

We tell our patients that it takes 6-8 weeks for your skin and muscle to be as strong as it will ever be.
