Hi, I'm Dr. Michael Epstein, and I'm going to answer a question that a patient is asking on Real Self. THe question that this particular patient is wondering about goes as follows. She asks, "How soon after breast reduction surgery can I begin to dance or exercise?" This may vary from person to person and from surgeon to surgeon, but generally for most of my patients after having elective cosmetic surgery I tell them that they can begin exercising after about three weeks.

There are some procedures where I extend that a little bit, depending on what type or procedure is done. Certainly with breast reduction surgery if the patient is healing in a normal fashion, they should be able to exercise in three weeks.
