In brief: Swelling BR
Discomfort, swelling and discoloration of the breasts are expected for several weeks.
Usually, our patients return to most normal activity within two weeks.

In brief: Soon
Most of your swelling be gone after a couple of weeks.
But it takes months for your breast to settle into their final position, especially if youve had a vertical incision reduction. Wait 3 months at a minimum to judge your results.
