It varies to each individual patient, there bleeding history, use of blood thinning products - i.e. aspirin, vitamin E etc.

In brief: Depending

Depending on how extensive your surgery is or how much of a reduction you have, you should expect swelling and some bruising after breast reduction surgery.
This should only last a few weeks though. Dr. Edwards.

In brief: In

In any surgical procedure there is some swelling, but not necessarily bruising.
The time for one or both of them to completely disappear is very individual. Good luck from nyc. For more info visit www.Drgrossman.Com.
