What Is Breast Reduction?

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.

Breast reduction surgery offers not only cosmetic benefits but also significant functional advantages. By removing excess breast tissue, Dr. Rotsaert can effectively alleviate the burden and weight on your chest, improving your overall quality of life. This procedure can address various physical symptoms associated with large breasts, including:

  • Neck, Shoulder and Back Pain
  • Bra Grooving
  • Tension Headaches

During a breast reduction procedure performed by Dr. Veerle Rotsaert, the breast volume and weight are reduced while the breasts are reshaped and repositioned to achieve a more balanced and proportional appearance. Dr. Rotsaert takes great care to ensure that the new breast size complements your unique body frame and proportions.

Dr Veerle Rotsaert believes in providing her patients with transparent and accurate information. During your consultation, she will explain the potential risks and complications associated with breast reduction, such as scarring, changes in nipple sensation, asymmetry, and difficulties with breastfeeding. However, with her expertise and precise surgical techniques, Dr V aims to minimise these risks and ensure a safe and successful procedure.

  3. Pre-procedure Instructions: Dr Veerle Rotsaert will provide you with detailed pre-procedure instructions to follow before your breast reduction surgery.

  • How will breast reduction surgery address my concerns and improve my quality of life?
  • What techniques will be used for my breast reduction, and what are the expected outcomes?
  • Can you show me before and after photos of previous patients who underwent breast reduction?
  • What is the expected recovery timeline, and when can I resume my normal activities?
  • Are there any potential long-term effects or complications associated with breast reduction?

What Kind of Anaesthesia is Used?

Breast reduction surgery is typically performed under general anesthesia, ensuring your comfort and safety throughout the procedure.

How Long Does Breast Reduction Takes?

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.

Your breasts will be more proportionate to your body frame, lifted, and reshaped, enhancing your overall silhouette and self-confidence.

How Long Before I Can Return to Normal Activities?

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.

Will I Have Scars After Breast Reduction

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.

One year post surgery - The best decision going to Dr V! Having lost a significant amount of weight (50kg) at the age of 21 my breasts were very low from the loose skin. After my initial consultation where she helped me and talked through all the options I had and guided me with her expertise on what would look best from her professional opinion from feeling my skin and her experience. Especially as my skin was very difficult. Had a breast lift with implants put it, surgery went so smoothly and 1 year post op they are looking incredible. So thankful to Dr V and her team, as well as the nurses at the Welbeck Hospital. After the operation was getting constant check ups both in person and over the phone. Would recommend she made feel so comfortable and the has made me so confident in my body! Thank you for everything 🙂

Undergoing elective surgery was not something I rushed into. After extensive research I met with Dr Rotsaert, and knew I had met the right surgeon to carry out my procedure. Finally a surgeon who is professional, compassionate, and demonstrates expertise!!! My initial enquiry was well received by a friendly knowledgeable team who made the booking process easy. Dr Rotsaert created a relaxed environment for me at consultation, and listened to my concerns - I left feeling reassured and well informed with my personal treatment plan. The lovely nurses Amina and Alice helped prepare me for surgery and were extremely attentive (they were also at hand for my post operative care which was nice for continuity) When I arrived at hospital the experience and trust was confirmed as soon as I walked through the door to the moment I left. I was made to feel VIP and relaxed in the knowledge I was in safe hands. Post operatively went as smoothly as I could have hoped for. The only fault being my personal lack of patience to being fully recovered. 6 weeks after surgery I can honestly say I’m delighted with my results and as cliche as it sounds wish I had done it sooner. Dr Rotsaert and her team listened and guided me throughout. With their support and expertise they turned a nerve wracking decision of mine into one of best decisions I’ve made. Gold star service!
From the very first email I sent and my initial consultation with Dr V, all the way through to my surgery day and 6 week post operation appointment, I have been so happy with how I have been treated. Dr V always made me feel comfortable and at ease, and I trusted she understood exactly what I wanted. The results are even better than I could've imagined. I have a newfound love for my body and my confidence has increased tenfold, all thanks to her wonderful work. Definitely the best decision I have every made. I can't thank Dr V and her team enough. Highly recommend!

I’d highly recommend Dr V to anyone looking for a natural breast enhancement. She put me at ease straight away, no getting topless on Zoom, no 3D simulation, but a face to face initial consultation telling me exactly what was possible and making me touch and try several implants on. I also felt like she would take her time during the surgery instead of rushing it in 20-30 minutes which was important to me. The recovery was way easier than I expected and my results 2.5 months in are amazing, I got my breasts back which had “deflated” after having and breastfeeding my daughter and I really wanted that natural effect which I got with Motiva Joy implants and demi projection. The fact the post-op appointments are included is also a great touch.

Dr Veerle was everything I had hoped I would find in a surgeon. Having done a lot of my own research and prep over the course of a few years, she was able to answer all my questions in a way that reassured me she was extremely professional, fully knowledgable and skilled/experienced enough to offer the best result. She was also generous with her time where it mattered whilst being efficient in the process. There was absolutely no hint of an upsell or any encouragement to consider additional procedures from her side which I had encountered elsewhere and had put me off. Post-procedure she has also proven a dedicated surgeon and is happy to be involved in the evolving result and post-operative journey. Dr Veerle is the best!
