Breast reduction, or reduction mammaplasty, is a procedure that can lighten excessively large breasts to relieve a variety of symptoms. If this sounds right for you, one key aspect of the process is learning about reduction mammaplasty recovery.

When preparing patients for the reduction mammaplasty recovery process, we inform them that it typically takes around a week to ten days to recover from the procedure. During this time, the incisions are healing and the body’s temporarily weakened tissues are settling into their new position.

Dr. Patrick Felice, a board-certified plastic surgeon, will be happy to tell you more about reduction mammaplasty recovery during a consultation at our office. He will be sure to give you all the post-operative care instructions you’ll need for a speedy and comfortable recovery. Contact us to schedule a consultation.
