The answer to some of the most common questions you may have
It's only natural to have questions if you are considering pursuing a treatment for the first time, and at Harley Street Skin, it's important to us that you feel confident and comfortable at every stage of your journey. To help you find the answers you need, here are a few of the more common quibbles that we find our clients frequently ask...
Breast Reductions are performed under general anaesthetic, and involve removing excess skin, fat and/or glandular tissue in a quest for a smaller, more compact area in an anchor or lollipop shape. They will then remove the redundant tissue, skin and fat before closing the incisions with fine stitching. The finished result will leave the breasts reduced in both weight and volume.
Breast Reductions can alleviate chronic back and neck pain exacerbated by a heavy chest, stop chafing and potential infection beneath the breast, eliminate shoulder pain and unsightly bra strap indentations, ease psychological distress and restore proportion to a previously disproportionate silhouette. If you are being forced to buy ill-fitting clothes to accommodate a cumbersome chest then a reduction may very well be for you.
Breast reductions start at £6,000 but our expert financial team are on hand to help you find a comfortable payment plan, should you want to spread the costs over a select period of time. Harley Street Skin want to make every stage of the process as pain-free as possible, and we understand that sometimes, this also includes pain-free on the pocket.
Unlike breast procedures using implants, reductions do not many use of synthetic or foreign materials - like silicone or saline - that eventually need replacing. This means that breast reductions are permanent procedures, and undergoing just one is more than enough to reap a lifetime of benefit.
This procedure requires professional prowess and a finely tuned eye, therefore compared to breast augmentations, they are a little more complex and lengthy to carry out. Pending your particular concerns, breast reductions can take anywhere from 2 to 5 hours to perfect, although your surgeon will likely have a much better idea of duration after your initial consultation.
Side effects of a breast reduction will include soreness, bruising, sensitivity and swelling - but these will all subside within a few weeks of surgery. Some patients may also experience a loss of sensation around the incision sites due to nerve damage, but fortunately, this is fairly uncommon. The only lasting side discreet than other standard, surgical scarring. Many women considering this operation however, feel that this is trade they are happy to make for a chest they can finally feel comfortable with.
Of course, as with any surgical procedure there is also the small risk of infection but with proper care this can be circumvented. Harley Street Skin doctors will be happy to discuss this with you in more detail at your consultation.
Recovery will vary from patient to patient. Your recovery speed will likely depend on factors such as your physical health and fitness level, however, on average you can expect recovery to take up to 6 weeks. You will also be required to spend some time in hospital after your operation, to ensure you are made as comfortable as possible as the effects of anaesthesia begin to wear off.
We would usually recommend taking 2-3 weeks from work, but this will depend on how physically demanding your role is. If your job will accommodate your operation, and allow you to gradually resume light duties as you heal, then you may be able to return to work as soon as a week after surgery.
You should refrain from any activities which increase blood flow to the chest (such as lifting, carrying, stretching, weight bearing etc.) for 4-6 weeks post-op. During this time you will also be instructed to wear a supportive surgical bra to avoid the weight of the breasts tugging on the wounds. You should also forgo driving for at least a week, which may affect how soon you are able to resume normal routines such as work and general travel.
