It’s not uncommon for patients with gynecomastia to be concerned about when they can resume their normal workout routine. This varies depending on the type of surgical procedure performed.
Each case needs to be considered individually since no two cases are the same. In the vast majority of patients, weight lifting and strenuous activities should be avoided for four to six weeks following surgery.
When gynecomastia is treated with liposuction, patients are frequently able to resume their normal work outs sooner than with excisional treatments.
It’s important to discuss this issue with your surgeon before resuming these types of activities. It’s important to remember that premature resumption of strenuous physical activities may be associated with significant complications.
