Typical recovery time following breast reduction surgery
While some complications are possible, most patients heal quickly and are happy and satisfied with their results. For the first few days after the surgery you will wear a special surgical bra to minimize swelling and support the breasts. You will continue to wear one of the bras for several weeks at all times. Most women take one to two weeks off from work and normal activity; strenuous activity is not recommended for six weeks after the operation.
