Recovery Time

People with sedentary jobs should take between 4 and 7 days off. Those with physical jobs should take 1-2 weeks off.

How to Prepare Before Breast Reduction Surgery

Smoking and illicit drug use must be strictly avoided before the procedure. We take smoking very seriously as a high risk for any procedure, so you must be aware of the cancellation policy if you smoke. Smoking increases the risk of some serious complications during and after surgery. Ideally, it would be best to stop smoking at least 8 weeks before a procedure. Cutting down does not reduce the risk of complications. However, the most significant health benefit is gained by quitting smoking for good.

You should be fit and healthy and avoid blood thinning medication such as aspirin and anti-inflammatory medicine before undergoing breast reduction surgery.

You must fast on the day of the procedure. You can eat dinner, as usual, the night before, and then you must stop drinking fluids at midnight. On the morning of the procedure, you can take a small sip of water to take your pre-surgery medication.

At least 2 consultations are needed before most procedures. A complete history and examination will be conducted. You will be started on antibiotics, and extensive instructions will be given.

What to Expect During Your Breast Reduction Procedure

The surgery is a day-case procedure under sedation in our Health Department licensed clinic. You are usually admitted early in the morning and discharged later that afternoon.

At the end of breast reduction surgery, you will go through to recovery, where you will be discharged home to your carer to rest. You will then come back the very next day for one of your follow-up appointments.

Absolute Cosmetic Medicine is dedicated to providing patient-focused care with minimal discomfort, so most of our patients have their procedures carried out under sedation.

Recovery After Breast Reduction Surgery

It’s normal to expect minimal discomfort for the first few days after your breast reduction surgery. A distinct improvement will be seen during the first week, but swelling may set in for up to 6-weeks. The result is, on average, seen at 3 months, but sometimes as early as 1 month. For some patients, the end result can take up to 12 months.

Recovery time is quick, and most patients can resume regular activity within 2-3 days after the procedure. We recommend light exercise at 1 week, moderate at 2 weeks, full at 3 weeks, and extreme exercise to be avoided for 6-12 weeks following breast reduction surgery.

Benefits of a Breast Reduction

Breast reduction can improve physical and emotional well-being by reducing discomfort and improving body image.
Other benefits of having a breast reduction include;

  • Improved posture: Those with excess breast tissue may experience poor posture due to the weight of their breasts pulling their shoulders forward, also contributing to neck pain. Breast reduction can improve posture by reducing this weight.
  • Increased mobility: Excess breast tissue may create difficulty to participate in physical activities due to discomfort or limitations in movement. Breast reduction can increase mobility and make it easier to participate in physical activities.
  • Improved self-esteem: Breast reduction can improve self-esteem by reducing breast size and creating a more proportionate and balanced appearance.
  • Better fitting clothing: Those with large breasts may struggle to find clothing that fits properly and feels comfortable. Breast reduction can improve clothing options and make it easier to find clothes that fit well.


Candidates for a Breast Reduction

The ideal candidate for a breast reduction is someone who is physically healthy, emotionally stable and has realistic expectations about the outcome of the procedure. An appropriate candidate for breast reduction may demonstrate some or all of the following characteristics and may benefit from breast reduction, however, it is crucial to attend a consultation for this surgical procedure to determine whether or not this surgery is right for you.

  • Large, heavy breast tissue.
  • Disproportionate breasts.
  • Neck pain.
  • Difficulty finding well-fitting clothing.
  • Difficulty participating in physical activities.
  • Non-smoker: Smoking can increase the risk of complications during surgery.
