Once your chest has been recontoured with the help of male reduction mammaplasty (the technical name for breast reduction surgery), you’ll need a bit of recovery time. When the patient diligently follows their doctor’s care directions during male reduction mammaplasty recovery, this ensures the best aesthetic results possible.
Temporary swelling and bruising come along with the majority of plastic surgery procedures. One key method of keeping down your swelling during male reduction mammaplasty recovery is by wearing an elastic garment or bandage over the recontoured chest area. Your plastic surgeon will instruct you as to how long you’ll need to wear this garment.
