Recovery and follow-up care for breast reduction
You will need to take at least one week off from work or school. Some patients require two weeks, but each situation varies. Your surgeon will instruct you on follow up appointments to remove bandages and sutures.
If you are a physically active person, you will not be able to resume your activity for at least one month after surgery. It
is very important that you realize the emotional impact of surgery. A lot of people experience depression, but this is normal! Make sure you communicate with your doctor about all your concerns.
