Breast reduction surgery before & after by David Oliver, Cosmetic surgery Devon - November 2016

“After the surgery I recovered very quickly, my clothes fit much better and I’ve found that I need my inhaler much less often so I am very pleased.”

BL, Age 33, Guernsey, Bilateral Breast Reduction

This patient underwent a bilateral breast reduction removing 800g of tissue from the larger right breast and 700 g from the slightly smaller left breast to even up the cup volume. It is very common with large breast to have a little difference in size between the two sides and usually surgery will reduce the difference between the breast sizes.  Heavy breasts can cause neck and back ache and  breast reduction can help with these symptoms. This is often due to improved posture after surgery  perhaps more so than the physical reduction in weight. There can also be quite a lot of breast weight on the chest with heavy breasts, especially when lying down and for this patient breast reduction surgery also helped her in her breathing.

“Everything was good, I was very well looked after. My breathing and posture is better and I can climb stairs more easily.”

KA, Age 70, Devon, Bilateral Breast Reduction

This 70 year old lady underwent a bilateral breast reduction and the results shown are at 3 months.

669g of breast tissue was removed from the right breast and 50 g from the left breast to reduce the difference in size between the breasts. Breast reduction surgery can be a very effective operation in young women but also in older women and if you are fit and healthy, with no other risk factors, then age should not be a barrier to surgery.  Breast reduction surgery can produce a physical and psychological benefit in many patients. Weight is removed from the breast and the nipple position is elevated. Predicting the exact bra size can be difficult but generally between a C and a D cup can be achieved depending on the pre-operative chest and  breast size.

“I am very pleased with the results.”

LH, Age 40, Exeter, Devon, Bilateral Breast Reduction

This patient underwent a bilateral breast reduction procedure and the results shown are at 6 weeks. The scars are at their most red at this stage and will now fade over the coming months. Approximately 1.3kg of tissue was removed from each breast (about 3 lb) to achieve this result using a T scar technique and a superior breast pedicle was used to keep the nipple and areolar well perfused during the healing period.

It is important not to smoke for several weeks before and after this procedure as this helps maintain the blood supply to the skin and especially the nipple during the healing period. Any planned weight loss is also best completed before surgery to avoid further drop of the breast after surgery which can occur with further weight loss. A few pounds of fluctuation in weigh up or down however will make very little difference and is not a problem around the time of surgery.

Breast reduction procedures can be associated with a high level of patient satisfaction.
