Breast Reduction Surgery

Reduction Mammoplasty

Plastic Surgeons



A breast reduction is an excellent procedure to address both the functional and aesthetic concerns you may have about being large (and heavy) breasted. It combines a volume reduction with a breast lift, leaving scars around the areola, down towards the breast crease, with an additional scar in the breast crease sometimes needed.

Surgery to reduce breasts takes place in hospital with you asleep. When you wake up, you will normally be wearing your post-surgical bra, with special surgical tapes on the wounds.


The benefits of a breast reduction are not only aesthetic, but also functional, due to the reduction in weight and strain on the neck, back and shoulders. At the same time, a breast lift is provided achieving better breast aesthetics and proportions.

More about Breast Reduction

Depending upon the size of the breast reduction, and the amount of breast lifting that is being incorporated, the surgery takes between 2 and 3 hours
You will stay in hospital overnight after the surgery, or occasionally the surgery is performed as a day case. You should wear a supportive post-surgical or sports bra day-and-night for at least 6-weeks after surgery, and sometimes for 3-months.
Emphatic activity should be cast aside for at least 2-weeks. You may be capable to drive after this period, but remember that you need to be relaxed in performing an emergency stop or similar maneuver. If you drive too initial and you need to do an emergency stop, the injuries may come apart from pressure of the seatbelt.
Breast reduction surgery has a very high patient satisfaction score, as it simultaneously addresses both aesthetic and functional concerns. Overall, we can therefore say it has a high success rate.

The risks and complications for breast reduction include:

  • Delayed wound healing and possible wound infection
  • Development of a post-operative collection of blood in the wound - this might require draining in the operating theatre
  • As the nipples are being repositioned and the breast is being tightened, there is a small risk that the nipple can undergo necrosis (die), but fortunately this is rare.
  • Other issues with nipples can include numbness and shape changes. There will inevitably be a degree of differences between your breasts - some breast asymmetry is normal
  • All operations carry a risk of blood clots occurring the legs (DVTs) that can migrate to the lungs (PEs) which, whilst rare, are serious.
  • Revision surgery might be needed to make any adjustments in your result
