    ;-) it took me about 2-3 weeks for most of the swelling to go down. Don't worry -- you'll be a C in no time!

    It depends on the type of reconstruction is what I found out while researching my choices. I had the DIEP flap and it took months for my swelling to go away and see what I actually ended up with. Lol. But you also have to remember that each person has their own healing time, which is also predisposed by diet too.
