Getting Back to Normal After Male Breast Reduction Surgery
It is common to notice some discomfort following male breast reduction surgery. If any pain needs to be managed, medication can help, as well as plenty of rest to speed along the healing process. You should also wear a dressing to minimize swelling as instructed by your doctor.
You should avoid certain activities for some time after your procedure, but mild activities like walking are fine. You may also resume your work within a few days, depending upon the nature of your job. You will be advised to avoid raising your arms right away, as well as avoiding exposure to direct sunlight to reduce any chances of scarring.
