What is breast reduction surgery?

Breast reduction surgery is an operation which is carried out under a general anaesthetic, which means you will be fully-asleep throughout the procedure. The surgery will usually involve:-

  • The removal of excess fat, glandular breast tissue and lose or excess skin from the breasts.
  • The re-shaping of remaining breast tissue to form a natural, pleasing appearance.
  • Moving the nipple to its new position, in most cases, whilst it is still attached to the blood supply.

It takes around 2 to 3 hours to complete a breast reduction operation and you will usually need to stay in hospital for one or two nights, so that we can monitor the initial phase of your recovery.

Am I suitable for breast reduction surgery?

Before any surgical procedure can commence here at Netri Cosmetic Clinic, Cheshire, we will ask that you attend an initial consultation with Mr Netri. This may be the first of several meetings so that you can understand the procedure, downtime and recovery requirements for successful and optimum results. Mr Netri will also need to examine you and check your medical history, so that he can ensure that any surgical treatment will be both safe and suitable for you. You will always be given a ‘cooling off’ period and we will never pressure you in to making a quick decision here at Netri Cosmetic Surgery. You can return to the clinic for further consultations, should you feel you would like to ask more questions or gain more knowledge and information. Only when you are fully confident that a breast reduction operation will be the right choice for you, will we happily book you in for surgery.

Frequently Asked Questions

What happens during a breast reduction surgery?

Any specific technique used to reduce the size of your breasts will depend on your individual anatomy and requirements. The procedure can include surgery through incision techniques to remove breast tissue and tighten skin, as well as liposuction to remove excess fat. In many cases, Mr Netri will usually make an incision around the areola and down each breast. He will then remove excess breast tissue, fat and skin to reduce the size of each breast and then re-shape the breast and reposition the nipple and areola. The nipples and areola will usually remain attached to the breasts, unless your breasts are particularly large, in which case they may need to be removed and then attached at a higher position as a skin graft. Mr Netri will use his many years of expertise and unsurpassed skills as a breast surgeon, to achieve symmetry between your breasts. However, it’s important to consider that some variation in breast size and shape can occur in some cases. The size of the areola may also be reduced. Any incision scars will fade over time but will never completely disappear.

What happens after my breast reduction surgery?

Immediately after surgery, your breasts will be dressed with a gauze or bandages and a tube may be positioned under each arm to drain any excess blood or fluid. You will be given appropriate medication such as pain relief and antibiotics to ensure that you are comfortable and that any risk of infection is minimised.

For the first few days to a week after surgery your breasts will most likely feel tender and sensitive and may be slightly bruised and swollen. Mr Netri may ask that you wear an elastic compression bra to protect your breasts and to help with the swelling.

In the weeks that follow your breast reduction surgery, you will need to limit physical activity while your breasts heal. Mr Netri may also recommend that you avoid wearing bras that contain underwiring for several months, following your procedure. You will need to return to the clinic so that your nurse can remove any stitches and follow up with you on your recovery, as well as to ensure that you are happy with your results.

Will breast reduction help with drooping breasts?

As breast reduction surgery involves removing fat, breast tissue and excess skin, your breasts will become smaller and ‘perkier’, so if you have sagging or drooping breasts you will be pleased to know that breast reduction surgery can offer an effective solution to this issue, along with the physical symptoms that drooping breasts can present.

Are there any risks associated with breast reduction surgery?

As with any surgical procedure, there are always going to be some risks with a breast reduction. However, as Mr Netri is one of the country’s most eminent and respected surgeons with decades of experience in this field, these risks are extremely unlikely. Any such risks or side-effects associated with breast reduction surgery will be explained to you in your initial consultation/s with Mr Netri and negating these risks by effectively checking your medical history and status is standard practice here at our clinics.

Potential risks associated with breast reduction surgery can include:

Potential risks include:

  • Complications with the anaesthesia
  • Bleeding
  • Seroma (fluid accumulation)
  • Infection, post-surgery
  • Uneven scarring
  • Changes or a reduction / loss of sensitivity of nipples and the breasts
  • Persistent pain or discomfort
  • Revision surgery later in life, should there be excessive weight gain or the breasts lose more volume, resulting in skin laxity and further breast drooping.

What factors can affect breast reduction surgery?

Certain lifestyle choices such as smoking, excessive exercise, if you have had children or had any illnesses can affect the breast reduction surgery in various ways. Your breasts are as unique as you are, and it is not realistic to compare your results to any of your friends, colleagues or celebrities in the media. It’s important to remember than any before and after images that Mr Netri shows you in your consultation are an indication of the kind of work he can achieve and your results can be significantly different from any images you are shown.

Factors to consider:

  • If you smoke, you may not be able to have surgery and will need to cease smoking prior to any operation.
  • If you are unable to recover and take time off work, a breast reduction operation will not be recommended.
  • There will be a set of aftercare instructions that you will need to follow, to ensure your wellbeing, a full recovery and optimum results.
  • The operation will offer different results for you, compared to others, so it’s important to remember that your body is unique, thus so will be your final outcomes.
