It's been 4 and a half weeks now since surgery, was wondering when I can start going for walks at least?

How long after surgery to be able to wear underwire bra's?

Post Operative Activity


You could have started walking the day after your surgery. This sort of prolonged inactivity is neither helpful in preventing complications or healthy in general. 

Best of luck!

Resumption of physical activity after a breast reduction.

This question is to be answered by your own surgeon. In my practice I permit patients and actually encourage them to walk immediately. Exercises that would involve significant movement of the breast should be avoided for six weeks.
