Whats new!

This was Jane’s second procedure at our clinic. Firstly a tummy tuck with liposuction. The second being breast reduction surgery. It should also be mentioned the procedure combined a breast uplift.



Our clinic was  recently awarded the prestigious  German ISO  9001 quality certificate.

Although we list breast reduction and breast uplift surgery on separate pages essentially one cannot be performed without the other and a mix of both techniques is needed.

The procedure usually requires some remodelling/reshaping to achieve the desired result. Oversize breasts by definition sit too low and by simply reducing the size they can appear to sit even lower. Therefore breast reduction is usually combined with breast reshaping and/or breast uplift. If the additional work is not too time consuming usually no extra cost are imposed. In most UK clinic we researched a combination of both is charged as two separate procedures.

What does breast reduction surgery involves?

Is classed very much in the category of major surgery. Along with tummy tuck surgery it cannot be combined with another major procedure.

On average the procedure takes around 3 hours. The first incision is around the areola  followed by a  vertical incision towards the base. Followed by another horizontally to the side. The excess skin tissue and glands are removed in order to uplift and reshape. Although hard to believe within 2 years the scars virtually fade away. Where the breast are not too heavy or pendulous the donut-concentic method can be adopted-see more on this below.

Well..first let me say, if we had a £ for each lady who wanted the procedure done this way we would be millionaires!  Women understandably are greatly concerned about a visible scar to an area which is an inherent element to their femininity. However the reality is, by and large  it is only suitable for patients with average or undersized pendulous breast. The obvious attraction here is you have just one small incision around the areola instead of the more extensive incisions described above.  However thinking about it logically if there is a lot of excess tissue what would happen to it?  A small incision around the areola would not make it magically disappear. We hate having to deny anyone what they wish and by doing so we often have to put up with an indignant enquirer.

Is there any age limit for breast reduction?

Certainly not before the mammary glands have fully developed -age eighteen. Even then its not really recommended as childbirth can impact negatively on the surgeons work. In a perfect world wait until the family is completed or, run the risk of having to repeat the procedure at a later stage.

However breast implant surgery does not affect pregnancy or place the the foetus in any danger. What may be a problem is breast-feeding.

Choosing your Surgeon for breast reduction. The best rule of thumb guide is to opt for one who has a good deal of experience. Can produce photographic evidence of their work, has good feed-back  although this cannot be totally relied upon. Someone who is non pushy, and waits for you to come to them of your own volition. By law in Czech republic the surgeon must be qualified or face a prison sentence.
