The breast reduction, or reduction mammaplasty, procedure is effective for making oversized breasts smaller and lighter. Once this procedure is complete, the patient’s reduction mammaplasty recovery period will begin.
One key aspect of reduction mammaplasty recovery is the management of post-operative pain. As the body heals, many patients experience some degree of pain or discomfort. To control this, we prescribe pain medication. This should be used during the first one to two weeks of recovery.
If you are interested in reduction mammaplasty, a full discussion of the reduction mammaplasty recovery process will be very helpful. Contact our office to schedule an appointment for a consultation.
