After breast reduction I still have some pain & numbness?

It is normal to experience pain and numbness 3-6 months after procedure. This is due to normal body healing. It is also normal to see some asymmetry on your breasts as each breast heal at different rates and each breast may recover faster or slower than the other, therefor swelling and bruising in each breast will normally differ from the other.
