Breast Reduction or Mammaplasty

Breast reduction or mammaplasty is surgery that removes fat, glandular tissue, and skin from the female breasts to reduce and reshape them so that they have a more youthful shape and the discomfort of living with heavy breasts disappears.

Many women who have large breasts find them very uncomfortable as they go about their daily lives. They often suffer from terrible back pain, pain in their shoulders and neck, and even wearing a bra can cause irritation as the straps dig into their skin.

Breast reduction surgery is nearly always performed under a general anaesthetic. Private costs for a breast reduction can range from approximately £3,500 - £5,500
