Reasons to have a breast reduction procedure at our Bristol clinic

To alleviate the physical problems caused by heavy breasts

The weight of the breasts can cause problems in the back, shoulder, neck, and the deep folds under large breasts can encourage rashes and skin irritation.

To improve your lifestyle

Large breasts can make it difficult to find flattering underwear or clothes that fit properly.

Finding comfortable sports bras or swimsuits can be a particular problem meaning that many large-breasted women are reluctant to exercise regularly.

Some women find that their breasts attract unwanted attention when they are exercising and dominate their appearance in a way that makes them feel uncomfortable.

To improve the appearance of the breasts

Large breasts can lose their shape after weight loss or breastfeeding and breast reduction surgery can restore a more youthful profile.

To correct asymmetry

It is not uncommon for breasts to be asymmetrical but in some cases, the difference in size is so marked that surgery is necessary. In such a case, your surgeon may suggest a breast reduction on one side.

What happens during breast reduction surgery in Bristol?

Breast reduction surgery, also known as reduction mammaplasty, is a surgical procedure to reduce the size of the breast by removing fat and glandular tissue. The procedure lasts around three hours and is performed under a general anaesthetic.

Excess skin is trimmed away and the remaining breast tissue is remodelled into a more defined shape. Most breast reductions also require a breast lift to make the breasts sit in a higher, more natural position on the chest.

Mr Khan and Mr Chapman place the surgical incisions in the breast crease to ensure that scars are hidden.

Breast reduction surgery can be performed using excision but if there is a large amount of unwanted breast tissue, Mr Khan and Mr Chapman may use liposuction.

All the techniques used will be discussed with you at your initial consultation at our Bristol clinic.

What will my new breasts look like?

Your new breasts will feel lighter and should look more youthful in shape. The painful pressure on your neck and shoulders will have disappeared. You will be able to express your own fashion style rather than choosing clothes because they accommodate your breasts.

Breast reduction surgery patients find that their smaller, firmer breasts allow them to exercise more freely.

What is the recovery period after surgery in Bristol?

Most breast reduction patients stay overnight in the Bristol Spire where post-operative care is a high priority.

You will need to wear a supportive dressing for a month after your surgery. This is an important part of your recovery. This will provide support for your muscles and protect your skin as they heal.

Mr Khan and Mr Chapman monitor the progress of patients with regular post-operative visits to the Bristol clinic.

It is essential that you follow your surgeon’s advice about returning to your normal routine activities and are particularly careful to avoid strenuous exercise until you are fully healed.

What is the pre-operative consultation procedure at Reshape and Restore in Bristol?

If you are considering a breast reduction, you will have two consultations with your surgeon before committing to surgery.

Mr Khan and Mr Chapman ensure that their patients have all the details about breast reduction surgery, the recovery process and any potential risks or complications before they decide about surgery. They carefully assess every case and will talk to you honestly about what your final result will look like.

Am I a good candidate for a breast reduction procedure?

Mr Khan and Mr Chapman always take a full medical history before they advise on your suitability for breast reduction surgery.

It is essential to be fit and healthy before any surgical procedure and you may be advised to lose weight and give up smoking before your procedure to ensure the best outcome.


Does the Reshape and Restore clinic in Bristol offer any other cosmetic procedures?

Mr Khan and Mr Chapman offer a wide range of procedures for the face and body. The most popular include breast augmentation with implants, breast reconstruction after trauma or previous surgery, tummy tucks and the mummy makeover.

How much does breast reduction surgery cost in Bristol?

The cost of this procedure begins at £6800 which includes general anaesthetic fees.

Your breast reduction surgery procedure will be designed for your body so the final cost will be confirmed after your consultation at the Bristol clinic
