Your London Breast Reduction

breast reduction surgery

Breasts which are excessively large can cause a range of problems, including chronic neck and back pain. Large breasts can also limit the clothing you are able to wear, cause discomfort, and even embarrassment. You may also find your breasts sag due to their heavy weight, or struggle to find a comfortable bra that provides lift and support.
Therefore, breast reduction surgery can offer a great deal of relief to those who have large breasts. In addition to reducing and reshaping your breasts, you will also find your breasts may flatter your body shape better after your breast reduction in London.

During breast reduction surgery, your surgeon can use a variety of different incision techniques and tissue removal techniques to get you the results you want.

A donut, also called a circumareolar incision, follows around the areola and is useful for very small reductions.

A vertical, or lollipop, incision follows around the areola then extends down to the crease of the breast. This incision type is best suited for more dramatic reductions.

Lastly, an anchor or inverted-T incision follows around the nipple, down to the crease of the breast, then along this crease. This technique allows for the largest amount of tissue to be removed of any technique and is well suited for dramatic breast reductions.

Tissue can also be removed from the top or bottom parts of the breast. Your surgeon will discuss all these options with you during your consultation.

Depending on the type of technique your surgeon uses and the type of work you do, you may need anywhere from two days to two weeks away from work to heal.

The full aesthetic results of your London breast reduction will be visible at between 6 to 8 months after surgery.

London Breast Reduction: Frequently Asked Questions

Thinking about having breast reduction surgery in London? We know you probably have a lot of questions, and that’s okay! Here we will answer some of your top questions below.

  • What should I look out for when choosing a breast reduction surgeon?


    You should always choose a surgeon who is either BAAPS (British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons) or BAPRAS (British Association of Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons) accredited. This is why it is a great idea to book through Medbelle, because every one of our expert surgeons is UK trained, a full BAAPS/BAPRAS member, with at least 10 years experience as a certified plastic surgeon.
    Researching the clinic itself and any customer feedback are also important criteria. All these, plus real patient testimonials, you will find these on our website and review pages.

  • How long will it take me to recover from breast reduction surgery?


    After your operation, you should expect to spend 1-2 nights in hospital. You may need to take up to two weeks off work. However, if your job requires any physical exertion you should expect this time to be much longer depending on the nature of your job.
    It can take 6 weeks to be able to exercise or lift heavy items again, so you will need to factor this in prior to booking surgery as your body will need significant time to heal. You will also not be able to drive for between 5 days and 2 weeks post-surgery, so you will need someone to drive you home from the hospital.

  • Can I breastfeed after breast reduction surgery?


    Many can breastfeed after surgery assuming they could before their breast reduction, but as the process of breast reduction surgery involves removing some milk glands, your ability may be reduced.

    In addition, depending on the surgical technique used to reduce the size of your breasts, this may remove more or less tissue that is needed to be able to breastfeed.

    Therefore if you are planning on breastfeeding post-surgery, this is something you should discuss with your surgeon during your consultation phase.
