I perform breast reduction surgery regularly in my practice and will discuss fully the surgery in your consultation. It may be where you only need a small reduction and more of a breast lift and in this case, the scars can mostly be around the nipple area and a straight scar to the middle of the breast running from below the nipple to the crease at the bottom of your breast. In the larger reductions, it may require a scar in this crease as well. All this will be discussed fully in my consultation and photos shown.
The nipple and the surrounding areolar will be lifted into a new more youthful position on the breast and the heavy breast tissue removed mostly from under the breast and to breast sides. It is important to know that you will need a comfortable soft supportive bra after to operation as this will help with swelling and pain.
Many of the hospitals in which I work have operation packages in place and allow for a nights stay and cost of the bra in the package cost. The package costs mean that you do not need to worry about any other costs from the time of your admission to discharge. At the bottom of this page is an example of a lady undergoing a breast reduction and tummy tuck at the same time. There are very good financial deals available for multiple procedures.
Please contact my secretary or the hospital of your choice for a discussion about Breast Reduction surgery and they will be very happy to let you know about all your care.

Here is what a breast reduction meant to one of my patients
Just had my six-week check with you yesterday.
I cannot thank you enough for changing my life.
I appreciate your hard work and experience in transforming me.
As soon as I woke up from surgery I said your a miracle as that is what it’s like.
I was amazed how pain-free I was and on such a high which lasted two weeks until I felt the nerves inside my breasts coming alive.
After week 4 I felt back to myself again.
What a journey - my family cannot believe the change in me.
Clothes fit better
I can breathe better
Space I feel under my breasts - and that I can see my feet again.
You really have not only changed my appearance but I have the quality back in my life.
I forgot a few times and went to lift them to clean them and they weren’t there.
It is not until they are gone did I then realise how much they bothered me to the extent they did.
Your work is incredible and knew I had found the best surgeon for me.
You are friendly and welcoming and have time for people.
Your experience stands out.
Thank you for the life-changing miracle It will shine in every step I take and in every breathe I take.
I am sure you have heard all this a million times over so although I am one of many it shows your quality of work is appreciated.
I highly will recommend you
Thank you again
Much love to you and your team"
