Breast Reduction Recovery

Recovery from Breast Reduction / Lift surgery will vary among surgery patients. Most patient will return to work within 7-10 days after surgery. It's always better to schedule more recovery time than you think you will need.

The recovery from a  breast reduction will vary but most of my patients return to work within about a week to ten days.  Best of luck.

In my own practice most patients will take off for about 7-10 days after a breast reduction. I request that my patients avoid heavy lifting pulling pushing and exercise for about 3 weeks after surgery.  Each PS will have his or her own regimen so do speak with your surgeon.
