Breast Reduction (Mammoplasty)

Patients who undergo breast reduction are probably the most grateful patients of all since the large breasts have caused them embarrassment, backache and skin problem due to the sweating and chaffing under the crease below the breasts.

There are several techniques that the surgeon can use and this will be discussed with you prior to the procedure.

The procedure
Under general anaesthesia with 1 or 2 night stays. Your anaesthetist will monitor your progress until you regain consciousness. After your procedure you will be taken into your room where you will start recovering.

Whilst reducing the size of the breasts, the surgeons will also uplift and reshape them. The incisions are made around the nipples and extended downwards to the crease of the breasts. Excess tissue is then removed and the nipple is repositioned and sutured. Redivacs are placed into each breast on free drainage. Jelonet dressing with a dry strapping is then applied. The dressing is changed after 24 hours and the Redivac is removed.

The day of the procedure
On arrival at the hospital you will be admitted by the receptionist and routing medical checks such as your temperature and blood pressure are carried out.

You will then change into the theatre gown and remove any cosmetics, jewellery, glasses or contact lenses before meeting the surgeon.

Most frequently asked questions

Is breast reduction for me?
Breast reduction is suitable for women with over developed breasts. Oversized breasts are just as distressing as small, under developed breasts; they often sag, are uncomfortable, cause backache and generally restrict an active lifestyle.

Many women feel self conscious and try to hide them under baggy clothes.

When will I see the results?
Soon after surgery the breasts will be swollen. The end result is not apparent immediately which may cause a slight feeling of depression. However, this is quite normal and as you begin to recover the results will become evident. The majority of women opting for a breast reduction have revealed that the psychological benefits have exceeded their expectations.

Because your breast size is more in proportion, you will find that your self-esteem and confidence will increase as a direct result.

When can I start my normal activities again?
After 3 weeks you can gradually increase your arm movements. Within 4-6 weeks the arms strength and movements will go back to normal and you can start with the normal activities and exercise such as golf, swimming etc.

What is your surgeons’ experience?
All surgeons introduced to you by Continental Medical Services Ltd are fully registered with the General Medical Council and are NHS trained and approved. They operate in fully registered private hospitals. Their qualifications can be viewed on request at consultation.

Would I have any scars?
Incisions are made around the nipple, from the nipple down to the natural crease and along the natural crease underneath.

Can I breast-feed after my breast reduction?
The patient will be unable to breast feed as the nipple is detached from the tissue.

Are there any associated risks?
There are inherent risks with breast reduction as there are with any surgery. The plastic surgeons are, however, highly qualified and complications are rare and usually only minor. The complications that may occur are a reaction to the anaesthesia, haematoma, infections or poor healing of resultants scars. You should discuss any concerns you might have with your surgeon before your surgery is performed.

After surgery?
During the first few days you can expect a certain amount of bruising, swelling, pain or discomfort which can be eased with mild analgesic.

Is the initial consultation free?
Yes, it is free of charge. Simply call 0870 043 3859
