Restrictions after Breast Reduction
Our restrictions after breast surgery typically include no reaching your arms over your head or lifting anything heavier than 7 lbs for about 6 weeks. That being said, you probably didn't undo anything from your surgery. I would try to avoid reaching up for the next few weeks. If you are concerned you could always have your surgeon take a look. Best of luck!

I typically recommend any breast surgery patient to not lift their hands up over their head for a full 10 days post surgery to avoid any complications. However, I would consult with your PS to ensure that everything is normal and you did not cause any harm to your surgery.
