Large breasts can have a negative effect on not only your posture but you may suffer from physical symptoms such as back pain and find they limit your ability to wear the clothes you want or play certain sports. Breast reduction is also suitable if you find you have one breast which is larger than the other, to reintroduce symmetry to your breasts.
Many women are extremely happy with their new breasts following breast reduction, which is cited as one of the most satisfying of all surgical procedures. Women often report an improvement in shoulder, neck and back pain, and enhanced posture.
Breast reduction is usually carried out under a general anaesthetic and will involve an overnight stay in one of our partner hospitals. As with many surgical procedures, there will be scarring and our surgeons will try their utmost to keep this to a minimum. The procedure and expectant recovery time will be discussed with your surgeon as part of your consultation.
