Overly large breasts can cause a great deal of discomfort, neck and back pain, physical issues such as rashes, and also impact on a woman’s confidence, preventing her from wearing certain clothes or participating in certain activities.
A breast reduction or mammaplasty is a surgical procedure, performed under a general anaesthetic, to reduce and reshape large, sagging breasts. Excess breast tissue, fat and skin are removed, before the remaining glandular tissue is reshaped and the nipples repositioned if required.
Breast reduction is performed under a general anaesthetic and can be a more invasive operation than other breast surgery procedures, sometimes requiring an overnight stay.
As one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures in the UK, a breast reduction can transform a woman’s self-confidence and achieves a very high patient satisfaction.
