Hard ridge in armpit one week after breast reduction
I had a breast reduction done for cosmetic reasons and to alleviate back/neck pain. The surgical bra they put on after the procedure did not come all the way up under one armpit and a small area of fat hung over the upper band of the bra for about 3 days post-op. I kept trying to tug the bra up over this area but was never very successful. At post-op day 5, I was cleared to switch to a soft sports bra and that's when I realized there was an indentation in swollen tissue at the armpit and this hard ridge of tissue right above it. I had lipo on both axillary areas, too. I am concerned at feeling this hard area about 1 inch long and wondering what I can do to make it go away. Is this normal after breast reduction?
