In brief: Depends.

These types of questions are best addressed by your plastic surgeon who knows exactly what procedure was performed, how you are progressing after the procedure ( whether or not you are experiencing any complications) and exactly how vigorous you will be “playing tennis”.
Remember, that he/she ( not online consultants) are ultimately responsible for your care.
