Breast Reduction

A breast reduction (mammoplasty) will reduce the size of larger breasts, which can cause backache, neck pain, marks in the shoulders from bra straps and rashes under the breasts. The tissue is removed to make your breasts smaller and your breasts are lifted to give you your desired shape.Having recently undergone breast reduction surgery, Maria Redmond’s series of vlogs for The Avoca Clinic offer sage advice and helpful tips for life post-surgery.

A breast reduction (mammoplasty) will reduce the size of larger breasts, which can cause backache, neck pain, marks in the shoulders from bra straps and rashes under the breasts. The tissue is removed to make your breasts smaller and your breasts are lifted to give you your desired shape.

The good news is that techniques have evolved and most women in the hands of our expert surgeons at The Avoca Clinic will just have the periareolar incision or ‘lollipop scar’. The recovery time varies from patient to patient but most women, who diligently follow our discharge instructions will be back at work within 10 days of this procedure.

Before your surgery you will have a full consultation with one of our Plastic Surgeons. Then you will have a pre-operative assessment with our dedicated nurse in charge of preoperative care.

On the day of the surgery, you will be given your post-operative dressing appointments. These appointments are set in advance, however if you cannot attend, it is recommended that you visit your GP instead. We will also schedule a 2 to 3-week review with your plastic surgeon. For your complete assurance, there is a nurse-on-call 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year to answer any questions you may have after your procedure.

Following surgery, you will be wearing a support or post-op bra when you leave our clinic. You will be asked to diligently follow our discharge instructions so that you will recover as safely and speedily as possible. This is in your best interest which is our main concern post-surgery.

 

Your procedure can be carried out in one of four locations: Avoca Clinic, St Vincent’s Private Hospital, The Hermitage Clinic or The Bon Secours Hospital in Glasnevin. The choice is yours and the surgery requires one overnight stay.
