When can I start exercising again after upper arm reshaping surgery?

Q: I am an art teacher so not an office job but not hugely physical either – so how long will I need off work and how soon after surgery can I start exercising again?

A: I would take a week off from your art work if is just teaching (assuming that you are not painting etc.) For the first week you can do everyday things, but plenty of rest. If your job is very physical work you should take three weeks off.
