Post Operation Care - Breast Reduction

Post Operation Care

It is advisable to get some rest for 4-5 days post surgery and avoid any strenuous efforts. Don’t try to raise your arms above the head and also avoid hits. After 7-10 days the patient is expected to visit the clinic for examination and to remove the stitches of the future.

Some of the patients present an increase in the sensitivity of the nipple and others a decrease. These alternations are usually temporary and resolved in a few months time.

It is normal that during the first month an asymmetry could exist due to the fact that an inflammation is being resolved and not always both breasts can present the same level of inflammation. It is also normal that one breast is harder than the other one and all that is resolved spontaneously.
