FAQ’s About Breast Reduction Surgery

Are you considering breast reduction surgery? Perhaps you are self conscious about large breasts, or they are particularly painful. If the answer is yes, then we have listed below some common frequently asked questions to both inform and put your mind at ease.

What symptoms do you need for breast reduction surgery?

Breast reduction surgery is a common cosmetic surgical procedure that reduces and lifts the breasts. This is done when women suffer from various symptoms including physical pain and difficulty in movement, including problems with posture and back pain. Women may also suffer from emotional symptoms such as low self esteem and negative body image issues.

What is involved in this procedure?

This procedure is carried out under general anaesthetic, and can take anywhere up to three hours. After a consultation with your surgeon, marks will be made on your breasts so that the surgeon will know exactly where to cut during surgery. Excess skin is usually removed from the lower part of the breast, with internal stitches then reshaping and lifting the breast. The areola and nipple will also be lifted and repositioned.

Will I need to take time off work?

This very much depends upon your general health and the amount of reduction that is carried out. Generally, most patients can return to work after two weeks when they are fully healed. You won’t be able to lift any heavy objects for six weeks.

Will it be painful?

We all deal with pain in different ways but any type of invasive surgery will require moderate pain relief following the procedure. Most patients will feel a little discomfort the following day and may require painkillers for the first week just to alleviate any discomfort, especially when moving. You should not require painkillers after two weeks post surgery.

What benefits will I see?

Those patients who suffered from back and neck pain, should no longer have these painful symptoms. Patients will also feel more confident and have increased self esteem as they feel better about their body image.
