DocShop.com Tip: Patients considering breast reduction surgery should understand there will be a significant amount of recovery time involved with the procedure. There will likely be pain and discomfort in the first couple of days after the procedure and physical activities may be restricted for the first few weeks. In general patients will be recovered within six weeks after the procedure but loss of sensation in the nipples and swelling can persist for significantly longer. Attending regularly scheduled postoperative appointments will help the patient to ensure the healing process is proceeding according to schedule.
