Breast Reduction
Surgery

A breast reduction can help women with large, oversized or uneven breasts become more comfortable with their breasts.

“I had a two night stay for a bust reduction, and the aftercare I received was outstanding! I am so happy I chose Transform and grateful for all their care, love, and support”*

Carolyn, 25th April 2017

Breast reduction FAQs

During your consultation, you’ll have the opportunity to get all of the answers you need from your surgeon. However, here are some of the questions our customers ask most regularly:

Breast Reduction FAQs

Each customer has different needs and requirements, which means that costs for breast reductions can vary at Transform. This is why our face-to-face consultations are so important. At this no-obligation meeting with your Patient Advisor, you will talk through a detailed overview of our pricing. You will also have the opportunity to find out more about our financing options.

There are several steps involved in breast reduction surgery, including fat and tissue removal, breast re-shaping and nipple shaping. Because of this, the surgery usually takes between two and four hours under general anaesthetic.

You will usually need to stay in one of our hospitals for two nights following a breast reduction. At Transform, we will discuss what we think is best with you before we book your surgery, so you know exactly what to expect.

Large breasts can often sag due to their weight, causing nipples to point downwards as a result. Breast reduction surgery reduces the size and weight of the breasts, resulting in breasts that are smaller and more lifted. Following breast reduction surgery, your breasts should appear in proportion to your body, whilst also appearing lifted and firmer. You can discuss the visual aspects with your surgeon prior to the procedure.

Changes should be visible shortly after the breast reduction procedure, but post-operative swelling may prevent you from seeing the end result for some time. Although the swelling will slowly decrease over the weeks after your surgery, it can take up to six months for the full results to be seen. Regular follow-up appointments will help you to monitor the progress of your breast reduction and ensure that the incisions are healing well.

You should expect some degree of scarring, but the extent of this will depend on where the incisions were made and the type of procedure. The position of any scars generally ensures that they are hidden when you are wearing clothes and after twelve months the scarring should fade significantly. Some of the scars will be concealed along the crease of the breast, but parts of the scar will remain visible.

Breastfeeding may still be an attainable goal following breast reduction surgery and all efforts will be made to preserve milk-producing tissue during the procedure. However, there is a level of risk that breastfeeding following a breast reduction may not be achievable. Such risks and concerns will be discussed in depth by your surgeon at your initial consultation.

The size and shape of your breasts should remain consistent, but this cannot be guaranteed if you gain or lose a significant amount of weight in the future. Excessive weight gain or weight loss may result in fluctuations in the shape and size of your breasts. This will be covered in your consultation, but if you have any specific weight goals in mind or concerns surrounding pregnancy, you should discuss this prior to the procedure with your surgeon.

If you have one breast larger than the other, you may be a good candidate for a breast reduction procedure. While it is common to have one breast that is slightly larger than the other, if there is a significant difference in size, it may be possible to create a more even appearance by having a breast reduction and reducing the size of the larger breast.

Back, neck and shoulder pain caused by large or oversized breasts can affect people of all ages. The minimum age for breast reduction surgery at Transform is 18. A key consideration when opting to have breast reduction surgery is whether you plan to have children in the future because a breast reduction may impact your ability to breast feed successfully. For this reason we don’t typically recommend that a breast reduction is undertaken prior to having children.

During the breast reduction procedure, a nipple graft may take place depending on the amount of tissue that needs to be removed from the breast. Once the breast is reformed in the desired size and shape, the nipple is positioned in the optimum location and grafted back into place.

In some cases, women find that they do experience a loss of nipple sensitivity after a breast reduction. This, and other potential side effects, will be discussed at length during your pre-surgery consultations.

Women who have a breast reduction surgery are generally satisfied with the appearance of their breasts and enjoy the increased comfort levels that come with smaller breasts and no further surgical procedures are required. Unlike other breast procedures such as breast enlargement where implants need to be replaced, a breast reduction shouldn’t require follow-up procedures to maintain the appearance. Unless you become pregnant or gain a significant amount of weight after a breast reduction, the shape and size of your breasts should remain the same.

More details on breast reduction

At Transform, we offer an extremely personalised experience. By finding out all about your needs, expectations and aspirations, we can tailor your service and support. Here is a step-by-step guide to what you can expect:

Breast Reduction step by step

The first step is to meet your patient advisor. Youu2019ll be able to talk to them about why youu2019re considering a u2018boob jobu2019, the likely costs and finance options, how much time youu2019ll probably need to take off work, and when youu2019d like to have the surgery. If you feel ready, weu2019ll then book you in for your free consultation with one of our surgeons.

At your free consultation, your surgeon will ask you about the results you want to achieve from the surgery. You can discuss what you ideally want your breasts to look like, whether you are a suitable candidate for the surgery and the benefits and risks u2013 with no obligation to go ahead. Our surgeons are extremely knowledgeable and happy to answer any questions you have.nTheyu2019ll look at your medical history and itu2019s wise to tell them about any pregnancy plans you have in the future or weight loss goals you have in mind. Theyu2019ll discuss with you the outcome that you can anticipate as well as any potential complications involved in the procedure. If you feel ready to go ahead and book your surgery, theyu2019ll then refer you to a clinic nurse whou2019ll perform some pre-op tests and procedures.

On the day of your surgery, youu2019ll meet with your surgeon so you can go through the consent form and ask any last-minute questions. Youu2019ll then be introduced to the rest of your surgical team before going into theatre.nDuring the two to four-hour procedure, your surgeon will make incisions in your breasts and remove excess breast tissue, fat and skin. The remaining breast tissue will be re-shaped to create smaller, more elevated breasts. Your nipples will be moved to a new position and the areola area around the nipple may be reduced in size to reflect these changes.

Following the procedure, youu2019ll need to stay in one of our Transform Hospitals for two nights, where youu2019ll receive the highest quality aftercare. Your breasts are likely to be swollen and feel tender to start with and it is normal to feel discomfort during the first 24 to 48 hours. There may also be some bruising at this stage. Weu2019ll provide pain relief to help with any discomfort you may experience, but you should be up and around within 48 hours.nDuring the first two weeks you should notice reduced swelling, bruising, pain and discomfort. During this time you will also have your stiches removed. Before you leave the hospital, weu2019ll talk to you about looking after yourself at home and make a follow-up appointment with your surgeon to remove your stitches. Weu2019ll also give you the number for our 24/7 patient helpline so you can speak to a member of our clinical team, day or night.

We believe that the highest quality aftercare is just as important as the surgery itself, so weu2019re here to support you through the recovery period. Youu2019ll need to give your body plenty of time to heal and weu2019ll give you detailed guidance on the best way to do this. The recovery period will differ from person to person, but we recommend at least one week off work and in some cases two weeks may be necessary.nYouu2019ll need to wear a surgical bra for the first few days and this will be replaced with a sports bra, which you should wear at all times during the recovery period. You should avoid any exercise and heavy or overhead lifting for six weeks, by which time you should have recovered from your breast reduction surgery. This is when youu2019ll be able to see the full results of your u2018boob jobu2019 surgery. Any remaining scars usually fade significantly in the coming months.nIf you have any questions or concerns at all, you can contact our 24/7 helpline. Youu2019ll also have a series of follow-up appointments with the Transform team to make sure youu2019re healing well. All patients have access to our three-year aftercare programme as standard and youu2019ll have the option to extend cover to up to 10 years.
