About Breast Reduction

If having large breasts causes you physical discomfort, back pain or pressure around the shoulders. If it affects your self esteem or limits you in the clothes that you wear or the physical activity that you can do, breast reduction surgery can help.

Core Medical Clinics can help you to achieve the look that you want. Experienced Consultant Plastic Surgeon Mr Ian Smith has carried out hundreds of breast reductions over his career and is highly respected in his field. He can see you for a consultation here in Wakefield, where together you will discuss the options available to you and the shape and size of breasts that you would like.  Mr Smith is on the specialist register of the General Medical Council (GMC), and is a member of the UK’s leading cosmetic and plastic surgery associations.

About the Breast Reduction procedure

A general anaesthetic is required for this procedure which will put you to sleep for between one and two hours. You will be asleep for the duration of the operation and will not feel any pain while the surgery is being carried out.

The operation is a straightforward surgical procedure and involves excess breast tissue being removed through incisions in the lower part of the breast. The nipples are then repositioned to suit the new shape of the breasts.

Stitches will be used to close the small wounds and dressings applied.

When you come round from your anaesthetic, you will be taken to a private room to rest and recuperate until you are ready to go home.

Usually a stay of one or two days is required for breast reduction surgery.

Pain relief

You will be given pain relief after the surgery to reduce discomfort which you will continue to take when you return home.

Getting home

Once you are ready to leave the hospital, you should be picked up by a friend, family member or taxi as you will not be able to drive.

Recovery time

You should be aware that recovery from a breast reduction procedure can take up to 12 weeks, during which time you will be given instructions on how to aid the healing process. We recommend that you avoid strenuous exercise, swimming, heavy lifting and housework for the first 6 weeks. You will also need to spend the first few weeks wearing a supportive garment to make you more comfortable and to protect the breast area.

Take things easy, take a week or so off work and rest. You will be able to increase your levels of activity gradually and should be able to return to normal activity after four to six weeks.


An experienced team will be available to support you in the weeks after your surgery. The Consultant Plastic Surgeon will want to see you for a follow-up appointment to check that you are healing correctly and that you are happy.

As with any medical procedure, there is the rare possibility of complications. The signs of infection will be explained to you and occasionally, additional antibiotics or further surgery may be necessary. The aftercare team will be on hand to answer any concerns you may have and you should call straight away if you are concerned about any symptoms that you are experiencing.
