If you're suffering from uncomfortable back, neck, and shoulder pain from breasts that are seemingly too heavy, a breast reduction in Baltimore, by Dr. Birely may be perfect for you.
Recovery From Breast Reduction Surgery
After your breast reduction in Baltimore with Dr. Birely, there will be swelling and bruising in the first 1-2 weeks. You will wear a compression bra to help reduce swelling and keep the breasts in their proper shape. During this time, do not lift anything over five pounds. Do not bend downward, stretch, or participate in any exercise or strenuous activity. During your recovery period, do not smoke or drink alcohol.
Your stitches will be removed after two weeks have passed. You will still wear your compression bra, but most women are able to return to work or other light activities around this time.
It will take 1-3 months for your new, smaller breasts to heal and begin to look beautiful and natural. After about six months, your breasts will be completely healed and will appear round, balanced, and appealing.
