Recovery after breast reduction varies but most patients resume daily activities within the week.
Recovery after Breast Reduction
The recovery after breast reduction is typically 6 weeks. That being said, you can do things like walk or sit on an exercise bike and pedal at 2 weeks post op. I would suggest that you give yourself 2 months to heal before your sister's wedding, so a surgery date around the beginning of May. It is important for you to discuss these dates with your surgeon so they are aware of your commitments. Best of luck!
