Breast Reduction SURGERY DETAILS

Who is Breast Reduction surgery for?

Breast Reduction is for individuals who want to reduce the size of their breast.

What are the benefits?

Your breasts should be smaller and have a better shape also removing discomfort.

What happens During Surgery?

The operation usually takes about 90 minutes.

A general anesthetic will be administered before the operation commences.

A cut will be made on the line of the areola (the darker area around your nipple) and a vertical cut below your areola. Then, they will remove some of your excess breast tissue, fat and skin.

If you have larger breasts, you may also need to make a cut on the crease under your breast (inframammary fold). It will leave an anchor-shaped scar.

How long will I stay in hospital?

You should be able to go home the next day.

What is my recovery time?

You should be able to return to normal activities after 2 to 3 weeks. You should be able to return to light work after a week. Recommend doing regular light exercises as soon as possible, such as walking to speed up your recovery. The results will improve gradually over time.
