    What Can I Expect From Breast Reduction Surgery?

    Breast reduction surgery in Ipswich, Suffolk, is usually performed under general anaesthetic and takes around 2-3 hours. It’s a significant operation, so you’ll need to undergo a pre-op assessment to ensure the procedure is the right one for you. 

    In general, breast reduction surgery involves the removal of fat, glandular tissue and excess skin before the nipples are repositioned to suit your new shape. The incisions are then closed with stitches and dressings applied to aid your recovery.

    Boob Reduction

    As with all surgical procedures, a boob reduction does come with a risk of complications, such as:

    • Pain and swelling
    • Infection
    • Bruising

    Some pain and discomfort is normal in the days and weeks following your procedure, and your breasts may also feel swollen and tender. It will take time to heal following your breast reduction, so you won’t see the finished results straight away. We recommend wearing suitable clothing to aid the healing process, which your surgeon will discuss with you beforehand.

    It may take several weeks for you to resume a normal daily routine following your breast reduction in Ipswich, Suffolk. We want you to have the best possible experience, so we have support systems in place for you to discuss any concerns or side effects. 

    At Suffolk Breast Practice, you’ll receive comprehensive aftercare guidance and check-ups to ensure your recovery goes smoothly and as comfortably as possible.

    • How Long Should I Wear my Surgical Bra After a Breast Reduction?

      After having a breast reduction, you should wear your surgical bra for at least six weeks. This can be removed whilst showering/ bathing but should be worn at all times otherwise.

    • How Long is Recovery From Breast Reduction?

      It can take from two to six weeks to initially recover from breast reduction surgery. After this, you will feel the soreness decrease and the pain begin to subside.

      Everyone’s recovery is unique and certain phases may be longer or shorter from person to person.

    • Does a Breast Reduction Include a Breast Lift?

      Every breast reduction procedure includes a breast lift. There are two components to the surgery: the reduction and the lift. This is how a natural look is achieved. 

      Breast reduction surgery includes lifting the breast and repositioning the nipples accordingly.

    • What are the potential benefits of a breast reduction?

      Having a breast reduction comes with many benefits, including:

      • A more proportionate chest
      • Reduced back or neck pain
      • Better posture
      • Less bra pain
      • Easier to complete daily tasks
      • Less risk of infections and irritation
      • More clothing and bra options
      • Less unwanted attention
    • How long do the results of a breast reduction last?

      Most breast reductions are long-lasting as the tissue promoting breast growth is usually removed. However, pregnancy can increase breast size, and the breast lift will reduce over time due to ageing.

    • Are there risks associated with breast reduction?

      Like any surgery, a breast reduction has risks, including: scarring, unevenly shaped breasts or nipples, and recovery or healing issues. Read our article for more information about breast reductions.
