When Can I Go Back To Contact Sports After Temporal Reduction Surgery?

Q: Dr. Eppley, Hi I was wondering whether you can return back to a contact sport like boxing after temporal muscle reduction and if so how long is it you have to rest.

A: You should be able to return to contact sports within 30 days or less after temporal reduction surgery. Since tissue is being removed you can not hurt the surgical result.
