How can I minimise the risk of breast reduction complications?

A breast reduction is a complicated procedure. You should therefore make sure you choose a highly-experienced BAAPS or BAPRAS surgeon to perform your operation.

You can also minimise the risk of breast reduction complications by, reducing your alcohol intake, maintaining an approved BMI and most importantly, you are advised to stop smoking. Patients are recommended to follow their personalised advice from their surgeon who will tell you prior to surgery if you need to stop taking any medications or lose weight.

Furthermore, you should be sure to attend all of your post-operative appointments to check you're healing properly and that you're not overexerting yourself in recovery, which could have a negative effect on your results. Following this advice can help you minimise the risk of breast reduction complications.
