Problems after Breast Reduction

Can you have fluid retention after a breast reduction?  Do the swelling of the breast fluctuate?

Absolutely!  Fluid retention is the norm after any kind of surgery.  It's the body's natural reaction to trauma and can persisit for weeks or even months after any surgery or trauma.
