Breast Reduction FAQs


WHAT SIZE WILL I BE REDUCED TO?

Your surgeon will examine you and look at your proportions this will enable him to see roughly how much tissue he will be able to take to still give you a natural in proportion breast shape.

WHAT WILL MY SCAR LOOK LIKE?

Common breast reduction scars are in the shape of an anchor, surrounding your areola vertically down to the breast crease, then horizontal along the natural breast crease.

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO HEAL?

Breast reduction surgery recovery can take around 2-6 weeks. People heal at different rates and following your post-operative instructions will speed this time up.

CAN I STILL BREASTFEED?

You will not be able to breastfeed following this procedure but this can be discussed with your surgeon.

WHEN CAN I DRIVE?

Up to 2 weeks following your procedure or when you feel comfortable to do so following the recommended time.
