Frequently Asked Questions
In order to fully recover from breast reduction surgery it will take between 2 and 6 weeks
As fat is removed from your body during breast reduction surgery, it is likely that you will lose some weight following this, but it does depend on the size of the breast.
Following breast reduction surgery it can take 6 to 8 months for your breasts to have fully settled into their final position. All breasts naturally change over time, but your breasts should sag far less than they would have done before surgery because they will be lighter.
Losing weight before breast reduction surgery is recommended to ensure that you get the best results, as it will be much easier for your cosmetic surgeon to match your new breasts to your body shape. In addition, it can also help to reduce sagging of the breasts following surgery.
It depends on the size of the breast and the type of technique used during surgery. Most of the times you may not be able to breastfeed adequately and you may wish to discuss this further with your surgeon.
Although in most cases breasts are permanently reduced in size following breast reduction surgery, breast tissue can grow back following a pregnancy, starting birth control pills, gaining weight or as a result of going through the menopause.
The results of breast reduction surgery are considered to be permanent, however weight gain, pregnancy and hormonal changes can cause your breasts to grow over time.
If you have overly large and heavy breasts, breast reduction surgery reduces their size by removing excess fat and skin in order to prevent back pain, neck pain, rashes and other discomfort. If you are mainly concerned about your breasts sagging, then a breast lift will reshape and support the breast tissue and remove excess skin in order to give you a more youthful appearance.
There are many reasons why people choose to have Breast Reduction surgery:
- Heavy and pendulous breasts which give mild discomfort
- Larger than normal breasts and can cause a great deal of distress and discomfort
- Backache from having to support the extra weight and breast pain
- Shoulder marks from the pressure of bra straps
- Difficulty buying clothes due to disproportion chest size
- Difficulty in purchasing underwear
- Inability to wear strappy tops or even the choice to not wear a bra
- Desire to look better in your clothes / swimwear
- Inability to take part in physical sports

Many women choose to undergo a Breast Reduction because of having larger, heavy and pendulous breasts that do not meet their desired and longed for appearance. For significantly larger breasts, a Breast Uplift may also be required to achieve the result discussed during the surgeon consultation, and to ensure the breasts and the nipples sit correctly.
