RESULTS AND AFTERCARE FOR BREAST REDUCTION SURGERY
Recovery from breast reduction surgery generally takes between 1-2 weeks, during which time you will wear a special surgical bra to provide support to your breasts. Avoid heavy lifting or strenuous activity for at least a month after the surgery. In some instances, a surgical drain may be needed to remove excess fluids. If excessive aching or swelling occurs, pain medication may be prescribed.
As with all surgeries, sometimes breast reduction leads to some scarring, and possible complications include infections, bleeding, breast asymmetry, or even permanent loss of sensation.
