Breast Reduction Breast reduction or reduction mammoplasty is the surgical procedure to reduce the size of large breasts.
We have a team of Consultant Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons who offer tailored operations to suit individual needs including breast reduction,
male breast reduction and breast uplift.
If you are considering a breast reduction you can book a consultation with one of our Consultant Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons to gain a full understanding of breast reduction and a chance to raise any concerns you may have with the procedure.
What happens during breast reduction surgery?
During a breast reduction the surgeon will remove excess fat (sometimes using
liposuction), tissue, and skin to achieve a breast size in proportion with your body, which should alleviate the discomfort associated with overly large breasts.
If you would like to find out more, you can book a consultation with one of our Consultant Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons to discuss possible surgery.
The most suitable type of surgery for you will be discussed at your appointments with your surgeon.
Before considering surgery it is also important to be aware that all surgical procedures carry a certain amount of risk and it is important that you understand the risks involved with breast reduction specifically.

Our promise to you:
Post operative appointments with your surgeon at no extra cost
24/7 dedicated contact telephone number
Our promise to cover the costs of further surgery, if required*
We offer a comprehensive aftercare policy for all of our cosmetic patients covering the cost of all your post-operative check-ups and offer unlimited appointments with your surgeon following surgery. After your surgery you will be given a 24/7 contact telephone number to our experienced clinical team should you have any concerns or questions.
*The aftercare promise covers the cost of any surgical intervention that may be required as a result of the treatment you have received for up to 12 months after you have been discharged from hospital.
Before considering cosmetic surgery it is important to be aware that all surgical procedures carry a certain amount of risk, and it is important that you understand the potential complications and risks of the particular surgery you are considering.
The initial consultation guide price covers the cost of your initial appointment with your consultant. The consultation fee is due in full on the day of the appointment.
The Main Treatment guide price covers your stay in hospital as long as it is clinically necessary. This guide price includes all pre-operative tests that the Hospital requires to ensure you are fit for surgery, the fees for your consultant and anaesthetist to perform the procedure, and any nursing care, medication and food after. However, if your consultant advises that you need a different prosthesis, or you request a non standard item, then the guide price for your treatment will alter. This will be made clear to you before you go ahead with your treatment and will become the ‘fixed price’. The payment for the main treatment is due in full, ten days prior to your admission date.
Post discharge care following your discharge from Hospital is included in your fixed price care package. This price includes a single post-op consultant consultation and physiotherapy visits (up to the number stated), removal of any stitches, change of dressings and any medication you need to take home with you. The main treatment price also includes the cost of treating any complications at the Hospital for 365 days following the date of your procedure where those complications arise directly out of the treatment you receive as part of your treatment package and are identified within 365 days of your discharge from Hospital, provided that you have followed the advice of your Consultants and any other medical professionals involved in your care following the procedure. This includes any consultations, outpatient, day-care and inpatient treatment that the Consultant says you need and which the Hospital agrees to provide.

About your recovery:
What is the recovery time for breast reduction surgery?
Breast reduction recovery times and the speed with which you can return to everyday activities can vary depending on the individual and the type of surgery carried out.
With a breast reduction you should be able to go home the day after, and if you are required to stay over night there is no impact on the price you pay for your treatment.
Be sure to discuss your return to work following a breast reduction with your Consultant Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon.
It is important that you follow the advice the hospital and your consultant provide you.
As part of our aftercare you will be provided with a direct telephone number to our nurses department should you experience any difficulties or concerns when you are discharged.
