Breast reduction recovery time

What would be a reasonable or suggested recovery time from this surgery? Need to have some idea how much holiday leave to book.

What are the downsides to take account of?

I am booked for surgery and have been told to take 3 weeks off work - the surgeon is providing me with a sick note.

Thanks. Best wishes for your surgery.

I had it done two weeks ago along with another major procedure. The pain from reduction has not been too bad at all, I think that three weeks is a good estimate. It's the after effects of the anaesthetic as much as anything else.
Hope it all goes well for you.
