Having a breast reduction tomorrow. What type of pillows should I purchase?

Congratulations on your decision to proceed with breast reduction surgery; this operation tends to be one of the most patient pleasing operations we perform.  I do not think that it is necessary to purchase a special pillow. Most patients do very well  sleeping in the reclined position (several pillows behind their back) or in a recliner. Best wishes for an outcome that you will be very pleased with.
