Re: Breast reduction?
Cardshark, I didn't have a breast reduction but basically the surgery I had was about the same. I had my ruptured breast implants removed, all my breast tissue removed, tissue moved up from my rib area and a lift. Pretty much the same thing. It was a 2/12 hour surgery but it takes time trying to get the silicone out. I had an IV put in a few minutes before the surgery and it was taken out about an hour after the surgery. I stayed at a hotel near the hospital (UCLA) and then went back the next day for a check up. I had drains in each breast for a couple of days. No IV though. I hope my answer is better than nothing since no one else has responded yet to your question
