In brief: Ask you Surgeon

Every surgeon has his/her own way of advising their patients.
I suggest you contact your surgeon. Generally speaking, most patient should refrain from vigorous activity for 4-6 weeks following surgery and wear a support bra.

In brief: Follow instructions.

Your plastic surgeon will have a detailed set of instructions for you to follow after breast reduction surgery.
These instructions will vary from one practice to another. General instructions will include a period of rest, ambulation, avoidance of nicotine products, avoidance of strenuous exercise/lifting and close follow-up after the procedure. Best wishes.
