Very normal; very common

Listen to your plastic surgeon.  This is what we do all day long.  We know the potential complications and how to deal with them.  That is the reason you chose a board certified plastic surgeon:  for their experience.If you are concerned, be sure to make an appointment to have the plastic surgeon see the area in person.  That is the best way to be certain what you are experiencing.  I hope you are enjoying the relief of weight that a breast reduction brings.
