Breast reduction procedure

Breast reduction surgery otherwise known as a Mastectomy requires an individual approach particularly concerning the size you want after surgery. Depending upon the type of surgery, you will be admitted for one night or the surgery is performed on an outpatient basis which means you can return home the same day. The procedure lasts between two and three hours and is performed under intravenous sedation.

The breast is made smaller by removing a quantity of skin and breast tissue. The nipple is transposed higher up on the breast and usually reduced. You are left with a circular scar around the areola running down to the breast fold and a horizontal one of various length in the breast fold. The scars will fade over time and be less noticeable There are variations of this operating technique which will be discussed with you.

In young girls who have large breasts at a young age, liposculpture can effectively reduce the breast and above all considerably slow down further growth. If this procedure is performed in time then more extensive breast reduction surgery may be avoided. There are no visible scars.

What to expect?

Following an operation to reduce or lift the breasts, they are tightly bandaged. We usually advise you to wear a wireless bra during the day and night for a few weeks after the surgery.

The stitches are all dissoluble and don't need to be removed. After a week you can resume most of your daily activities though it is best to wait 6 weeks before carrying out any heavy-duty activities. After 18 months the scars will have faded.
