How longer after a breast lift/reduction can I go for a walk for exercise?

Thanks for the  question and congratulations on having undergone breast reduction surgery;  it is one of the most patient pleasing operations we perform. Generally, it is best to follow your surgeon's  guidelines in regards to return to activity/ exercise. Most of my patients are able to return to brisk walking about 3-4 weeks after breast reduction surgery. Use common sense, listen to your body, and gradually resume previous activity. I hope this helps.
