Breast reduction in London involves surgically removing breast tissue to decrease the size of the breasts, or enhance the shape. Many women with large breasts regularly feel uncomfortable due to the weight and seek surgery to correct disproportionate breasts. Surgery also relieves pain in the back, shoulders and neck due to overly large breasts. Our breast reduction surgeons are able to provide you with natural looking breasts, with limited scarring and a minimal recovery time.

Breast reduction is one our most popular cosmetic procedure here at London Private Hospital. Many women who have breasts too large for their body experience various problems that cause pain or prevent them from participating in physical activities. The surgical procedure can relieve pain in the back, shoulders and neck caused by the weight and size of breasts. Breast reduction can also improve bad posture caused by overly large breasts. Cosmetic surgery provides natural looking results and corrects breasts that seem out of proportion to the rest of the body, whilst enhancing breast shape and lifting. Our surgeons can also restore symmetry when the breasts are asymmetrical.

Those who feel self-conscious about the size of their breasts in public are suitable candidates for surgery as well as those who feel physically uncomfortable regularly. You may also want to consider breast reduction surgery if your breast weight is causing your nipples and areolas to point downwards. Whilst breast reduction surgery is primarily performed on women, we can offer a solution to men who are concerned about large ‘man boobs’ or Gynaecomastia.

Breast reduction surgery is designed to both reduce the size of your breasts as well as improve your overall shape and contours. After surgery, patients will be able to wear their desired clothes and do the things they have previously struggled to do, due to overly large breasts. The surgery is a relatively straightforward procedure and our surgeons specialise in breast reduction surgery. You should take time to consider this life changing procedure.

Breast reduction surgery aims to remove excess tissue, fat and skin from the breast area. Also called boob reduction, during surgery our surgeons will use their aesthetic skills to carefully reposition the breasts to ensure they are symmetrical and breasts are not over reduced. Our surgeons also pay close attention to the incisions made, to reduce the chance of visible scarring. If you are concerned about sagging breasts, reduction surgery can be combined with breast uplift too, further restoring a youthful look.

All patients will first attend a breast reduction consultation with our surgeon. We will take a full medical history and assess your suitability for breast reduction surgery. You will also have chance to ask all of the questions and express any concerns. During your consultation, we will take time to get to know your concerns and procedure goals.




What will happen during BREAST REDUCTION SURGERY?

A breast reduction procedure is usually straightforward and is a well know cosmetic procedure here in the UK. Surgery is carried out under general anaesthetic and normally takes around 1.5 – 3 hours to complete at our London Private Hospital. During your consultation our surgeon will inform you of the best approach to take to minimise scarring and provide you with the best results. Incisions are typically made either underneath the breast or vertically from the areola.

After the procedure is complete, you will recover in our private facility, usually overnight until you are discharged. For recovery information, please read our FAQs.


Here are the top questions that patients ask us before undergoing breast reduction surgery and their answers. If you would like to learn more about breast surgery, request a consultation.

Scars are inevitable with any surgery that involves making an incision. Patients will not experience significant scarring following surgery and our surgeons use their aesthetic skills to hide incisions so scars are less visible. Normally scars will fade overtime and there are non-surgical skin resurfacing and scar management options to reduce any scars left behind.

The skin, fat, and tissue removed during a breast reduction procedure are permanently removed and cannot grow back. It is important to note that your breasts may change shape over time due to ageing, childbirth or weight gain/loss. Weight gain can cause the breasts to increase in size.

There is a small possibility of a loss of sensation in the nipples. If this occurs, normally it is restored over time.

Most patients are able to breastfeed easily after breast reduction surgery. There is a small chance your milk production is affected by the procedure.

Your boob reduction surgery will take around 1.5 – 3 hours. You should allow time to recover post-surgery, to enjoy the best results.

Suitable candidates are those who are unhappy with their breast size or feel pain as a side effect of having large breasts. Those who feel uncomfortable or self-conscious about their breast size may also be suitable. Prior to surgery, our surgeon will assess your suitability.

During your initial consultation, we will provide you with all of the information you need to achieve the best results post-surgery. Every patient responds to surgery differently, so it’s difficult to say exactly how long it will take you to recover from this procedure. You will notice an immediate difference in your breast size after surgery. You can also expect some swelling which will normally subside in the weeks after surgery. Most patients will be able to see the best results around 3 months after.

Pain after breast reduction can be managed with medication. You will notice swelling after your surgery and will be sore. Of course, everybody has a different pain threshold. Please discuss your concerns with our surgeon.

After your breast enlargement procedure, you will recover in our hospital for the time suggested by your surgeon. Once we are satisfied, you will be discharged from hospital and must follow the aftercare advice provided by our team.

Patients will be able to drive after approximately 2 weeks. This depends on how uncomfortable it is to sit with a seat belt on and your ability to manoeuvre a car without pain.

Boob reduction surgery is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures. Here are some of the possible risks and side effects. They range from common to very rare.

  • Scarring
  • Asymmetric breasts or nipples
  • Loss of sensation in breasts or nipples
  • Lack of healing or infection
  • Being unable to breastfeed in the future
  • Excess skin
  • Bleeding
  • Dissatisfaction with results
