Can I exercise after plastic surgery?

WalkingIt’s important to allow your body the time it needs to heal. Recovery from plastic surgery depends upon the type of procedure performed, but in most cases you should refrain from exercise for at least four weeks after your surgery. Being sure to follow aftercare instructions closely will help to ensure the healing process goes smoothly.

Once swelling diminishes, discomfort starts to fade, and you are given the go ahead, you can begin activity again by walking. Then you can slowly incorporate additional activity until you gradually build back up to your normal routine. Listen to your body, though. If you get fatigued, rest. Don’t push yourself too soon.
