Delayed healing due to a hematoma
There is not much you can do to speed the process along. Bruising and bleeding into the soft tissues will definitely delay the healing process.
Swelling after breast reduction
Thank you for your question. It takes several months for the swelling to go down. In your case where you had two hematomas on the right side; this will even take longer for the swelling to subside. You do not mention in your question whether these hematomas were evacuated.
