Is 280g enough of a breast reduction to make a difference in comfort and appearance?

1 week post op, some advices:
Thank you very much for sharing your concerns with us.
1 week after Breast Reduction, it's not time enough to express a valid opinion of results.
On the other hand, generally to avoid the normal p.o. swelling, I recommend to limit the arms movement for two weeks.
Also it's not advisable to carry weight and take the antiinflamatory painkillers drugs.
Finally, I recommend you always use a therapeutic bra.

You would have to have been seen in person before surgery to get a feel for what could be possible for you. 280 gms per side is not a large breast reduction in a large person. Right now though, you have swelling so you have to give yourself time to heal.
