What is a breast reduction?

Breast reduction is a cosmetic procedure to remove excess fat and skin from the breasts making them smaller, better shaped and more uplifted. The procedure can relieve physical symptoms such as breast discomfort, neck ache, backache, shoulder pain, skin irritations under the breast fold, painful pressure from bra straps and difficulties and discomfort during exercise.

What happens during breast reduction surgery?

Breast reduction is performed under a general anaesthetic. It can take between one-and-a-half to three hours.

There are several different surgical procedures for breast reduction. Excess skin and fat is removed. Your breasts are reshaped and the nipples are repositioned. All procedures result in a scar around the areola (dark area around the nipple) and each method results in additional scarring. Your surgeon will discuss each procedure with you and together you will decide which is best in your particular case.

Breast reduction can also be used to correct asymmetry (imbalance) of your breasts.

Going home after breast reduction surgery

Patients are usually required to stay in hospital one to two nights. You will have dressings on your breasts and there may be drains (plastic tubes). The drains are usually removed before you leave hospital.

You will be given post-operative pain killers and instructions regarding your dressings and any stitches you may have.

Most patients are mobile from day one and return to normal activities within six weeks. However, everyone heals differently. Be sure and discuss your return to work with your surgeon.

The results of breast reduction improve gradually over time. Your breasts should become softer and more natural as the healing continues.

What are the possible complications of breast reduction?

Be sure and discuss any concerns you have with your surgeon. There are risks to having any surgical procedure:

Specific complications of this operation

  • Developing a lump or swelling inside the breast
  • Numbness or persistent pain on the outer part of the breast
  • Loss of skin, including the areola and nipple
  • Stiff shoulder
  • Change of breast and nipple sensation
  • Uneven shape: your breasts will change shape after reduction surgery. There is a chance that they may end up slightly lopsided, lumpy or with uneven nipples
  • Reduced ability to breastfeed.
