How is breast reduction surgery performed?

Breast reduction surgery is usually performed under general anaesthetic as a day case procedure, meaning advanced sedation techniques are employed to enable you to recover more quickly after surgery and return home on the day of your breast reduction surgery.

Whilst there are several breast reduction surgery techniques, each essentially involves reducing a proportion of the breast volume via excision and reshaping the breast mound such that the nipple is lifted into a more normal position, while preserving the blood supply to the elevated nipple and areolar complex. The overall effect is a more ‘pert’ breast hanging in a more regular position.

Your surgeon will explain his or her preferred breast reduction surgery technique at your consultation and where the incision is to be placed accordingly.
