When can walking /riding bike occur after tummy tuck/bust reduction
Doctor Answers 4
Activity After Surgery
You should be walking immediately after any surgery so you do not develop blood clots in the lower extremities. However, as far as something that could result in a fall and damage your muscle tightening in the tummy tuck, I would recommend you not ride a bit for a minimum of six to eight weeks after surgery. Certainly by two months’ time most surgeons would be comfortable with you doing such activities. I hope this has been helpful. Robert D. Wilcox, MD
Exercise after tummy tuck and breast reduction
I would have you up walking immediately
of blood clots. of course, you won't be walking a lot in the first few days but
it is important to be up moving. there is also no reason you cannot walk
it really depends on how your are progressing and this is something that
needs to be discussed with your surgeon about when you can start doing
hard long walks and cycling.
i would suggest you could be walking miles at a fast pace after about 2 weeks and
probably start a spinning class after maybe 17 days. i would hold off street cycling
until you are 3 weeks incase you fall off your bike.
it is great that you are already thinking about getting back to being fully active.
