Breast reduction surgery, also known as reduction mammoplasty, is a transformative procedure designed to reduce the volume of the breasts while simultaneously reshaping and lifting them. Dr. Veerle Rotsaert, an accredited plastic surgeon with years of experience and exceptional attention to detail, offers breast reduction surgery in London to help patients achieve both physical and emotional well-being.
Large breasts can often lead to a range of physical and emotional issues, such as chronic neck, shoulder, and back pain, bra grooving, tension headaches, soreness, and even infection in the breast folds. It’s not uncommon for individuals with larger breasts to experience embarrassment or discomfort due to insensitive remarks or unwanted attention. Breast reduction surgery aims to alleviate these symptoms and concerns by reducing breast volume, providing comfort, improving physical well-being, allowing for better-fitting clothing, and ultimately restoring self-confidence.

Questions to Ask: When considering breast reduction, it’s important to have all your questions addressed. Here are some key questions to ask Dr Veerle Rotsaert during your consultation:
Breast reduction surgery is typically performed under general anesthesia, ensuring your comfort and safety throughout the procedure.
The duration of breast reduction surgery varies depending on individual circumstances, such as the extent of reduction and complexity of the procedure. On average, the surgery can take two to four hours. Dr Rotsaert’s expertise and meticulous approach ensure precise breast reduction while prioritising patient safety and aesthetic outcomes.
Following breast reduction surgery performed by Dr. Veerle Rotsaert, you can expect to experience transformative results both in terms of physical comfort and aesthetic appeal. Your breasts will be more proportionate to your body frame, lifted, and reshaped, enhancing your overall silhouette and self-confidence.
After the surgery, it’s essential to adhere to the recommended aftercare instructions provided by Dr. Rotsaert. These instructions typically include wearing a supportive bra, avoiding strenuous activities or heavy lifting, taking prescribed medications, and attending follow-up appointments to monitor your healing progress.
The recovery timeline following breast reduction surgery can vary from patient to patient. Generally, it is advised to take at least one to two weeks off work to allow for adequate rest and healing. During this initial period, it’s important to avoid strenuous activities, heavy lifting, and exercise.
While you may resume light activities within a few days, it’s crucial to listen to your body and gradually increase your level of physical exertion. Dr. Rotsaert will provide you with personalised guidelines regarding when you can resume specific activities, such as exercise or heavy lifting, based on your progress and healing.
Scarring is an inherent aspect of breast reduction surgery; however, Dr. Veerle Rotsaert employs advanced surgical techniques and pays meticulous attention to detail to minimize the visibility of scars. The scarring pattern typically involves a scar around the areola, a horizontal scar in the breast fold, and a vertical scar connecting the two, creating an anchor-shaped scar.
While scars are an inevitable part of the healing process, they will gradually fade over time and become less noticeable. Dr. Rotsaert understands the importance of scar management and will provide you with guidance on post-operative care to optimise the healing of your scars.
