Will I be able to build/tighten chest muscle after a breast reduction?

Thank you for sharing your excellent question. You can certainly build and tighten your chest muscle after a reduction as the only tissues affected during the procedure are located superficially. Hope this helps.

A breast reduction will remove excess skin and breast tissue, leaving your underlying chest muscles alone. You can certainly build and tighten your chest muscles afterwards.
