3 weeks after reduction and I still have lots of uncomfortable swelling, especially under my arms. Is this normal?

I have anchor incisions. Im wearing a marina compression bra but it feels tight. Will this harm the shaping of my breasts?

The compression bra are good to support the breast, Is not going to help with the swelling and also with the scarring if you wear to tight , Keep in mind a breast reduction is a big procedure and not every patient recovery is the same. Ask your surgeon if no improved in the next week.
