Swelling after Breast Reduction?
Thank you for the question.
Congratulations on your recent breast reduction surgery; it is one of the most patient pleasing operations we perform. Increased swelling after exercise is not unexpected; continue to follow your plastic surgeon if it becomes a significant concern.
