Submit your question below about any cosmetic procedure to be considered for posting with an answer from one of our board-certified plastic surgeons.

How long after surgery can I start upper body weight training?
You have trusted your plastic surgeon to do the surgery. I would recommend that you follow his/her post operative instructions, they know what was done in your specific case.
3 months after the procedure feel free to train. Start slowly and a month after starting again, do it normally.
Weight Training After Surgery- To do any weight training after any type of cosmetic surgery, you should wait at least 4-6 weeks. This will maximize wound healing and not injure the area that you had the surgical procedure on.
