Breast reduction surgery is available in Liverpool through renowned female cosmetic surgeon, Anca Breahna, an expert in breast procedures.
Miss Breahna’s NHS practice specialises in breast surgery. As such, she is highly experienced in breast reduction surgery.
Operating out of the wonderful Spire Murrayfield in Wirral, a short journey from Liverpool, Miss Breahna can advise as to your suitability for this operation.
Also known as a reduction mammaplasty, this is a breast surgery procedure that can have a profound impact on a woman’s life.
And, as not only a leading surgeon, but a leading female one, Miss Breahna is acutely aware of the importance of this form of treatment and the sensitivities it involves.
In this page, we will outline key details about a reduction mammaplasty in Liverpool -the technical term for the procedure – and also give some information about why Miss Breahna stands apart from other surgeons in Liverpool.
Why Have a Breast Reduction?
For many women, the decision to have a breast reduction comes after many years of discomfort, pain even and potentially issues relating to self confidence and self esteem.
Breasts that are too large can cause myriad problems. Physically, they can lead to pain in the back, neck and shoulders, and also make posture sub-optimal, this then creating further problems.
Overly large breasts can also create a rash.
Activities and lifestyle can be impacted, for instance sport, even just exercise such as walking and swimming too.
The impact can also then extend to mental health, harming self-confidence and overall happiness, this can have a detrimental effect on relationships, work and all aspects of life.
Quite simply, it can make a woman feel and perhaps become withdrawn, less than she could be.
Post surgery, the impact and improvement can be wonderful to see – not just the visible change to profile, but the change that is apparent in the patient as a whole. A happier, more confident, more healthy individual.
This is one of the joys of being a surgeon, seeing the true impact a procedure can have, a life diminished is no longer so.
Breast Reduction Procedure?
To think of the procedure is actually to jump forward a stage, as it would always begin with a detailed consultation.
While there are many fine surgeons in Liverpool, it is worth noting that Miss Breahna is a true expert in breast procedures and the reduction mammaplasty process.
At the consultation, you will talk and she will listen, understanding your patient journey, what has brought you to seek this surgery and the change you hope to see enacted.
She can then use all her skill, experience and considerable empathy to suggest a plan of best action and why this would be recommended.
Your full medical history would of course be factored in.
This consultation is also a chance for you to see if the surgeon is right for you – do they instil confidence, are you happy with their approach and their ethos. You onl ,want to proceed when you feel fully happy that you have found the right surgeon for your needs.
After the consultation, you would then be free to come to a decision in your own time, free of pressure. Often, a second consultation is useful, this to ask any follow-up questions.
If surgery is ultimately undertaken, the operation would start with the breasts being drawn on, this to mark where incisions will be made and the nipple placed.
The incisions are usually made around the nipple, positioned vertically from the nipple downwards to the crease below the breast.
The breast tissue is removed in this process and the nipple then skilfully repositioned in line with the earlier markings.
In common with many leading surgeons, Miss Breahna uses superomedial pedicle with either an ‘inverted T’ or a vertical scar technique – the precise approach used will depend on the individual patient.
Breast reduction surgery will require an overnight stay in hospital and is performed under general anaesthetic.

Breast Reduction Risk
There is some degree of risk with any surgery, but breast reduction is considered to be very safe – and Anca Breahna is an expert in the surgery.
There are the uncommon risks linked with any surgery – wound infection, reaction to the anaesthetic and delayed wound healing among them.
Specific risks would be inability to breast feed, asymmetry and poor scarring.
There is likely to be a degree of pain – typically managed by standard pain killers – swelling, bruising and potential short term loss of feeling in the breast region.
