Love your Breasts
A breast reduction, or a reduction mammaplasty, is a breast procedure which removes excess skin and breast tissue from the breasts and then revises the breasts into a more pleasing shape.
Overly-large breasts can be a source of discomfort, distress and even pain for many women. They can restrict what you can wear and even impact on your ability to perform daily activities. This is why many women seek a breast reduction from Mr Tariq Ahmad. Book Consultation

During a breast reduction procedure Mr. Ahmad prefers, where appropriate, to use a modification of the Hall-Findlay technique. This technique utilises a smaller incision which means limited scarring afterwards. The incision extends around the nipple and then down from the base of the nipple to the natural fold under the breast. This is called a ‘lollipop’ scar. For some patients, it is necessary to make a very small incision along the crease as well.
Mr Ahmad finds this technique offers patients the most natural and aesthetically attractive shape to the breast.
A breast reduction is performed under general anaesthetic and you will probably have to stay in hospital overnight before being discharged.Book Consultation

- You will need to sleep upright, well-supported with pillows for 2 weeks following surgery.
- You will probably have a bloody nasal discharge for the first few days. You can dab this away gently with a tissue. Do not attempt to clean inside the nose. Do not blow your nose for at least the first 2 weeks after surgery.
- Hot drinks should be avoided for the first 48 hours.
- Avoid bending down or forward as this will increase the pressure in the nose and may lead to bleeding.
- Bruising and swelling around the eyes will increase at first, reaching a peak after 2 to 3 days.
- Cold compresses can be applied to the eyes to soothe the area.
- Try not to sneeze or cough. If this cannot be prevented, open your mouth to allow the pressure to escape through the mouth rather than the nose.
- Should you require pain relief, Paracetamol is recommended. Please avoid taking Aspirin-based medications as they may cause bleeding.
- Hot baths and strenuous activity should be avoided for 2 to 3 weeks.
- If sutures are present, these will be removed at 4 to 7 days following surgery by a professional
- The nasal splint will be removed at 7 to 10 days following surgery by a professional. This must stay dry and intact until then.
