Breast Reduction

Breast Reduction

Breast reduction, often referred to as ‘mammoplasty’, is considered to be one of the most life changing of all surgical procedures. A breast reduction procedure has the ability to deliver life-altering benefits such as improvements to shoulder, neck and back pain and overall posture.

Breast reductions are performed with the patient under general anaesthetic and will also include an overnight stay in one of our partner private hospitals. Similar to most surgical procedures there will be a degree of scarring, however, your surgeon will endeavour to keep scarring to an absolute minimum. During your consultation your surgeon will discuss all aspects of your surgery and recovery times in detail.

Surgical Consultation

If you are looking for a Breast Reduction, La Belle Forme is able to offer a comprehensive service tailored to meet your individual requirements – commencing with your initial consultation which will be offset against your surgery if you decide to go ahead. Our consultation fees start from £50.

At your consultation we will discuss your current health, medical history and the overall look you want to achieve. Patients will also have the opportunity to ask their surgeon as many questions as they like such as what’s involved in a breast reduction procedure and recovery times.


Recovery time for breast reduction takes approximately six weeks until scars fully heal. We recommend that patients avoid any heavy lifting for around six weeks following surgery. Patients should also aim build up activity slowly and only undertake gentle activity after two weeks has passed. Patients should however be back to their normal activities around six weeks after surgery.
