Raising Arms after Breast Reduction Surgery?
Thank you for the question.
Your plastic surgeon will guide you during your recovery. Assuming no complications it is very likely that you will be able to raise her arms slowly approximately 2 weeks after surgery ( possibly sooner).
Regular clothing after breast reduction
You should be able to wear a regular shirt right away after breast reduction, and raising your arm up is fine with our technique, however you might find a shirt that buttons in front more conveneint for a short while. Best of luck

Breast reduction and movement
You should be able to put a blouse on soon after a reduction. Lifting the arms is ok in my practice, you may not feel comfortable to do so for a few days after surgery.
