About Breast Reduction:
Breast reduction is a surgical procedure to make the breasts smaller. Many women undergo this procedure to help relieve back pain and other discomfort associated with large, heavy breasts. Breast reduction surgery can result in not only physical improvement, but also psychological well-being with a boost of self confidence!
The procedure involves the removal of breast tissue, excess fat, and nearby skin and the repositioning of nipples to change the overall size, shape and weight of the breasts into the perfect breasts that you’ve always wanted. (A breast lift may be performed at the same time as a breast reduction if required).
Operation time varies from 2 to 2.5 hours and requires you to stay one night in hospital so we can monitor your progress. You may experience some pain and discomfort up to 7 days after surgery; however pain relief will be available to ensure you are comfortable. We recommend 1 – 2 weeks time off work so you can rest whilst your body is recovering. Results are visible soon after treatment, however it may take up to 12 weeks until final results are seen and scars will continue to improve over 18 months.
