Breast Lift /Breast Reduction/ Breast Augmentation/ Breast Implants/ Anatomic Gummy Bear Implants/ Silicone Implants
I appreciate your question.
I would recommend that you discuss this question with your surgeon as every surgeon has their own respective post op protocol for his/her patients. Your surgeon is your best resource as he/she is most familiar with your medical history and how you will be healing following surgery.
The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.
Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery.
Best of luck!

Traveling after breast reduction surgery
Activity and travel restrictions vary from surgeon to surgeon. I usually make sure that patients don't travel for at least 2 weeks after a reduction, as major complications if they were to happen would usually have done so within this time period. The main drawback to traveling earlier than 4 weeks after surgery is that you should not be lifting your arms above your head or lifting anything heavier than 10 lbs. I would check with your particular surgeon regarding his/her preferences, as it's not worth going through surgery if you don't give yourself time to recover and get a good result as well.
