What Does It Involve?

Breast reduction procedure involves reducing the amount of breast tissue whilst uplifting the breast tissue at the same time. In order to achieve the desired outcome the Cosmetic Surgeon will reposition the nipple and areola to give the breasts a natural appearance. Breast reduction surgery takes up to three hours to complete, depending on the size of your breasts. The operation is carried out under general anaesthetic, and you will need to stay in hospital for 1 or 2 nights.

Breast reduction will leave permanent scar around the areola and an inverted T scar below in majority of cases.  However, the scar will fade with time.  It is important to realize there is no exact measurement of bra size and size measurement is dependent on projection rather than volume.  It is never a good choice by compromising a well shaped reduction and to have a poorly shaped one when too much is removed.

It is important to refrain from heavy upper body lifting and exercise for a six weeks period. Breast reduction cost around £6-8000 partly depending on the hospital cost.

After Surgery

Following breast reduction surgery, you should be up and about in a day or two but your breasts may still ache occasionally for a couple of weeks. You will need to take one or two weeks off from work, avoid lifting, pushing anything heavy for a couple of weeks. You will be required to wear a supportive bra (eg a sports bra) for up to 6 weeks, day and night to keep the breasts well supported whilst healing takes place.

Testimonial

BY A VERIFIED PATIENT

I am very satisfied as Mr Ho-Asjoe is very patient and takes the time to consider what’s best for the patient, respecting their needs, unlike other doctors I have seen. I have had a great experience and would happily refer friends and family to him.

Mr Mark Ho-Asjoe did my tummy tuck on the 13/4/17. Before surgery he explained the procedure and showed me pictures of surgeries he undertook. He clearly informed that i may have scarring after the operation, however I am please with the result. After the surgery Mr Mark Ho-Asjoe reassured me that if there were any problems I should contact him immediately any time of the day, which i found reassuring and alleviated any anxieties i may have had. The after care received was top notch and will definitely use him again for any future operation(s).
