Generally, the surgery takes between 2 to 4 hours, and it requires general anesthesia. Patients must stop taking certain drugs (such as antidepressants and birth control pills) before surgery.

The first incision is made around the areola, to allow an easy repositioning of nipple later on. The second, is a straight incision from the areola to the breast’s lower ridge. At this stage, the surgeon will remove excess skin, fat and tissues to reduce the breast’s size.

The incisions will be then stitched up with absorb-able sutures and covered with sterile dressings. Depending on the surgeon and the surgery itself, you may wake up with a drain that will be removed the day after.

In the first couple of days, your breasts will feel sensitive and tender. Some patients may experience mild swelling or bruising. Any scars you may have after surgery will fade over time. Most of the swelling will be gone after 6 weeks or so.

For proper healing, wear a soft support bra for up to one month after removing your bandages. Absolutely avoid underwire bras, due to the excessive pressure on the wound. Our team will provide you with two bras that will help reduce discomfort while ensuring optimal support.

In general, it takes about 6 to 12 months for your breasts to achieve the desired shape. Beware that pregnancy, weight loss, and hormonal fluctuations may interfere with the results of surgery.

The patient will undergo general anaesthesia with injections of local painkillers.

1 to 2 weeks, depending on the pain experienced.

4 to 6 months.

This surgery is generally carried out as day surgery (in and out), but depending on the amount of tissue removed, you may need to stay overnight.

You should avoid physical activity for a minimum of one month, longer if you are healing slowly. The upper part of your body will need some time to recover and exercise could spoil the results.

Most women report feeling drastically better after this surgery and exercise become easier.

Will my breast be different after surgery?

Yes it will. It will be lighter, rounded and it will not drop any more.

Can I drive after surgery?

No you cannot drive. Every breast surgery requires you to avoid driving for one to two weeks. The movements you normally do while driving will be uncomfortable and may damage the stitches, making it unsafe.

After how long can I resume sexual activities?

Six weeks minimum. After six weeks, it all depend on how fast you are healing. The breast will be tender and it may still be uncomfortable to touch.

What is a difference between uplift and reduction?

While the technique is similar, the approach is very different. An uplift is used to improve the shape of your breast and aims to correct issues caused by ageing, pregnancy or important weight loss. A reduction instead aims to drastically reduce the size and weight of your breast, removing a big portion of tissues in the process.

Can I do this surgery under the NHS?

Yes and no. Sometimes the NHS allows you to have this surgery for free. The size and weight of your breast however must be enough to cause health problems. Check with your GP if you qualify for surgery. The only set back in having this surgery with the NHS, is that you cannot chose your surgeon or the date of surgery.
