Breast reduction is an operation to reduce the volume and improve the shape of the breasts. Many patients with large breasts experience symptoms such as grooving in the shoulders from their bra, rashes under the breasts, difficulty finding bras or clothing, poor posture, neck, shoulder or back pain. Breast reduction surgery has in numerous studies been shown to significantly improve the quality of life for patients.
Breast reduction is performed under a general anaesthetic and usually requires an overnight stay in hospital. Patients will often have a drain in either breast immediately after the procedure and these will be removed prior to discharge.
