Warm/hot bubbled swelling underneath breast after reduction? (photos)

I have a lot of swelling and soreness on my sides and under my breasts. They are numb when touched and painful when pressure is applied. My breasts have 0 pain, just underneath them and my sides towards my back. (He preformed lipo on my sides too) Are these normal side effects of surgery and how long I should have swelling for? Should I pull the strips off myself or just let them stay on until my follow up? Should I put oil on it after I shower? When can I resume regular exercise? Please help!

Post operative care and follow-up

These are questions for your surgeon.  If for some reason your physician is unavailable there would be an on call physician otherwise I am afraid you will need to be seen at an urgent care facility or by your primary care physician for help
