After breast reduction ideally you do not want to lie on your breasts ( or sleeping on your stomach). If you want to sleep on a recliner that is probably ok.

Breast Reduction Recovery in a Recliner
You may find sleeping in a recliner much more comfortable than trying to sleep in bed with pillows elevating your head and back as pillows can slip around. Also, getting in and out of a recliner may be easier than trying to get in and out of bed. Practice ahead of time. Some of my patients that do not have a recliner buy one at a garage sale or from Craig s List and then resell it after their recovery. Good luck!
Recliner after Breast Reduction?
I presume that you are planning on breast reduction surgery; this operation tends to be one of the most patient pleasing operations we perform. Many patients find that recliners work very well during the recovery after breast or abdominal surgery.
