Typically 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.

I have my patients wait 4 to 6 weeks before doing any exercise, try to be patient, you do not want to set your recovery back. You should check with your surgeon on this. Good luck.

4-6 weeks

My patients are instructed to refrain from upper body workouts for at least a full 4 weeks after gyno surgery

In my opinion I would not exercise your shoulder because that can activate your chest muscle and the chance for increased pain or fluid collections.  I would seek counsel from your plastic surgeon.
