Working out after my gynecomastia surgery

How long after gynecomastia surgery do I have to wait before I can start lifting and working out my chest again?

Every patient is different and every surgeon has his own recommended post-op regimen.  However, for my patients, I strongly recommend no strenuous workouts for four weeks after surgery.  And then a gradual return to your usual work-out routine over the next two weeks.  By six weeks post op, you should be able to go full throttle.
