How long should i wait before going back to skydiving after a breast reduction?

Breast reduction - when can I sky dive?
From a healing point of view, definitely no earlier than 6 weeks.
But no doctor will support your sky diving - fun as it is, it is very dangerous.
Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.

I would consider 6 weeks to be the minimum and would probably advise 8 weeks. This assumes that all the healing has gone well and the breasts are comfortable.Obviously you should be off any medication / painkillers that could affect your judgement before resuming skydiving. (It would be unusual to still be on medication at 6 weeks and if you were there would probably be other reasons for not skydiving i.e. not fully healed).Primarily you should follow the advice of the surgeon who carried out your surgery.

- You should be just fine skydiving 6 weeks after a breast reduction if you didn't have any post-operative healing complications.
