Have a question?
Ask a doctor
If your tightness is an area of operation recommend the use of moist heat. Also wearing a support bra will help take the tension off the breast and center of the chest. If the tightness continues then you need an evaluation by your plastic surgeon but over time this will get better.
Tightness after a reduction
isn't something my patients complain of. Ask your surgeon for input and for a more thorough evaluation as to what could be causing this. Regardless, it is not expected to anything serious and should resolve with time.
