Q: How Long After a Breast Reduction Are You Laid Up?

A: Recovery time will vary slightly from patient to patient however most will recover quite promptly. You should be encouraged to be up and ambulate immediately. You will have some limitations in upper body exercise as well as high impact aerobics for 2 to 4 weeks. Most patients may return to work after 1 week.
