Breast Reduction Recovery – Miami Reduction Mammaplasty

Posted August 06, 2015 in Plastic Surgery

The breast reduction procedure helps patients get smaller, lighter breasts that do not cause physical issues like back and neck pain. Once your breast reduction has been completed, temporary plastic drainage tubes may be inserted into the chest area. These drains are used to carry excess liquid from the region in the first two days of breast reduction recovery.

Using post-operative drains ensures that various complications like seromas and hematomas do not form during breast reduction recovery. Seromas and hematomas are accumulations of excess blood and fluid that can cause post-surgical issues.
