Breast Reduction Recovery Tips
Bruising & Swelling

Bruising and swelling should be expected after your breast reduction procedure. You may be swollen for up to three to four months, although this could be very slight and only noticed by you. Your breasts, of course, will be smaller than they were before and higher so you may not notice swelling too much. Treatment for prolonged swelling includes increasing your fluid intake (preferably water), having normal to low sodium intake, and movement, such as light walking. Other common side effects during recovery include numbness or changes in nipple sensitivity, itching around incision sites, and increased firmness or fullness in the breast tissue.


After your breast reduction procedure, it is essential to sleep with at least two or three fluffy pillows under your upper back and head, or on a wedge pillow or a recliner chair, to keep your torso elevated. Sleeping on an elevated level will help relieve pressure for your breast reduction treatment areas, reducing swelling and pain. Our Beverly Hills patients place a pillow under their knees to prevent rolling over during the night. They also put pads alongside them to create a sort of recovery nest so that they will be more at ease during their breast reduction recovery period.


When it comes to showering after your breast reduction operation, you may take sponge baths until your incisions have completely closed and your sutures are no longer in place. You may not be able to wash your hair for a while, because you will not be allowed to raise your hands over your head. If you must wash your hair, have a friend assist you in the sink or basin or with a handheld showerhead. It is important to take your daily activities slowly after your breast reduction procedure to help the healing process recover promptly and not rush the recovery period for a painless and successful breast reduction recovery.

Everyday Activities

Do not exercise or engage in strenuous activities for at least 3 to 4 weeks after your breast reduction procedure. Don’t lift anything over 5 pounds and try not to raise anything over your head. Take your time in healing so that you give yourself the best healing environment possible. Your full range of motion should return between 6 to 10 weeks, depending on how well you have healed after your breast reduction operation. Within six months, you will be able to do the things you wanted to but couldn’t due to your oversized chest. Significant weight will be taken off your chest, and you will feel much happier and lighter on your feet.

    Overly Large Breasts Size

    You want to reduce your overly large breasts that are causing you to be at risk for health diseases. Overly large breasts, a condition known as macromastia, can also be a source of embarrassment. Your clothes don’t fit the way they should and you spend a ton of money tailoring every outfit that you purchase. If you are embarrassed or uncomfortable with having overly large breasts, then a mammaoplasty reduction performed in Beverly Hills is the procedure for you.

    Discomforting Body Movements

    You want a mammaoplasty reduction because the size of your breasts limits your ability to run and exercise. You even dread putting on gym clothes to know that you will again struggle to get out of them. The discomforts you experience may cause more pain to your body than if you were not to exercise. You want a mammaoplasty reduction in Beverly Hills because you feel dragged down towards the upper half of your body, causing slowness in breath and harder to breathe during your workouts.

    Difficulty Breathing And Sleeping

    You want a breast reduction because you have trouble breathing and sleeping at night. Your overly large breasts are making it difficult to breathe, whether you are sleeping, talking, or exercising. The shortness of your breath is due to the heaviness in your chest that no medicine can offer relief. Talking to others can be embarrassing as well if you are self-conscious about your breathing. You want a breast reduction to help feel more confident about your body when you conversed with others.

    Irritation Of The Skin

A breast reduction performed in Beverly Hills by cosmetic plastic surgeons Dr. Kapoor and Dr. Schlenker is the procedure for you if the skin under the breast crease gets irritated as you put on your bra. Also, your breasts hang low, and the skin surrounding your chest is stretched, causing more stretch marks as you age.

Also, you may want a breast reduction because you are having difficulty sleeping or laying down flat on an everyday basis.
