Incision Line Healing Problem after Breast Reduction?
Thank you for the question.
Generally speaking, once you have reached the 6 week mark postoperatively it is unlikely that you will experience any incision line separation or wound healing problems.
Hope this helps.
You can exercise freely 3 weeks after breast reduction.
This is the question women are most interested in. When can I exercise? If your scars look solid at three weeks, you won't get wound separation.
