Breast Reduction Recovery
The recovery period is a crucial phase that allows your body to heal and adjust to its new contours. Following the procedure, you will be provided with detailed post-operative instructions to ensure a smooth recovery process.
It’s normal to experience some discomfort, swelling, and bruising in the first few days after surgery. You will be advised to wear a special supportive bra to minimize swelling and promote proper healing.
During the initial days of recovery, it’s important to get plenty of rest and avoid strenuous activities. You should also follow the guidelines provided for caring for your incisions and changing dressings. It’s common for patients to gradually return to light activities as their comfort level improves.
