"After a surgical procedure like a breast reduction, severe, persistent postoperative pain may be quite common in many breast reduction patients (39% to 64%).

Although most women expect short-term pain to be moderate/less severe, severe pain seems to impact most breast reduction patients' self-esteem adversely. Severity and duration of pain after surgical procedures can be improved by using perioperative and postoperative pain medications, as well as by having a discussion with patients prior to the procedure about how to handle pain." - Anonymous Online Contributor
