When it comes to recovering from top surgery (or any surgery for that matter), it’s important to listen to your doctor’s advice.

During recovery, listen to what your body has to say, and treat it with tenderness so it can take its new shape as soon as possible.
All that being said, you will certainly be eager to get back to your routine following surgery which may include going to the gym. In fact, exercise will improve your recovery, and over time, even the results of your surgery. Doctors suggest going back to light activity (such as walking) soon after surgery.
