Breast Reduction

Breast reduction surgery, also referred to as Reduction Mammaplasty, can successfully improve the pain, discomfort and embarrassment that is frequently associated with large breasts.

More sizeable breasts can often be uncomfortable and cause neck pain, back and shoulder pain, poor posture and a rash under the breasts.The operation removes excess breast fat and glandular tissue, relieving the discomfort of large, heavy breasts, whilst creating a more attractive shape and size.

Breast Reduction Surgery

Before surgery, the breasts will be drawn on to show where the incisions and nipple will be placed. Incisions will generally be around the nipple and vertically from the nipple downwards to the crease below the breast. The nipple will be supported by a stalk of breast tissue (the pedicle) while the operation is taking place, and repositioned upwards in accordance with the markings made on the breast.

Miss Breahna uses a supero-medial pedicle with either an ‘inverted T’ or a vertical scar technique, depending on the individual characteristics of the breast. Due to the nature of this surgery, an overnight stay in hospital will be required. After your surgery, you will need to wear a surgical supportive bra for up to 6 weeks, to support the healing process and reduce the discomfort from early mobilisation.

Follow-up appointments at the breast surgery clinic in Chester or The Wirral will be arranged at 1, 2 and 6 weeks, 3 months, 6 months and 1 year post surgery to closely monitor your physical well-being.

Frequently asked questions

If your breasts are large and heavy and cause pain in your neck, shoulders and back, then you may be a suitable candidate for this treatment.

All surgery presents a degree of risk, although in general, this treatment is considered to be very safe, frequent risks can include: bruising, swelling, change in nipple sensation and temporary numbness. Infrequent complications are: infection, delayed wound healing, bleeding (haematoma) nipple necrosis, asymmetry and poor scarring.

There will be some pain associated with having a surgical procedure, but this is well managed with pain killers. Although activities should be kept to a minimum after surgery, it is important to resume some movement at regular intervals.

You should allow 5 – 7 days before socialising with friends and family and take up to 10 days off work.

This procedure may incur a period of 2 weeks recovery time to allow for successful healing, and time off work may be required. Driving will be possible after 2 weeks. It may need up to 3 weeks before travelling abroad and up to 12 weeks before returning to the gym.
