2 months post op, some advices:

Thank you very much for sharing your concerns with us. 
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.
Respectfully,

Excess skin after Breast Reduction

Thank you for your pictures.  You appear to have some excess tissue. This can simply be removed under local anesthesia in your surgeon's office.  Best wishes
