A breast reduction is an operation to make your breasts smaller and, sometimes, to improve their shape.
Your breasts should be smaller and have a better shape.
If you are overweight, you may be able to reduce the size of your breasts by losing weight. You may find it easier to cope with large breasts by wearing a custom-made bra or corset. Liposuction (using a thin, hollow tube to remove fat from under your skin) may be appropriate for some women to reduce breast volume.
Like all surgical procedures, there are some complications that can be serious and can even cause death. Please bear in mind the general and specific complications regarding this type of operation.
You should be able to go home the next day. However, you should be able to return to normal activities after 2 to 3 weeks. You should be able to return to work after a week, depending on your type of work.
It’s good to have regular exercise, which should help you to return to normal activities as soon as possible. Before you start exercising, ask the healthcare team or your GP for advice. The results of a breast reduction improve gradually over time. Your breasts should become softer and more natural, and the scars should fade.
