What is a breast reduction operation
There are a number of techniques or methods for breast reduction surgery London. Mr Jallali is a fully accredited Plastic Surgeon and can carry out the full range of breast reduction procedures.

Who will benefit from breast reduction surgery?
This is a subjective matter but any lady who feels that her breast size is interfering with her activities of daily living such as clothing and exercise or has psychological distress is likely to benefit. There is no upper limit in breast size and postoperatively most patients comment that they wish they had had the surgery earlier. In general except for cases of Juvenile breast hyperplasia, Mr Jallali recommends that the procedure is not carried out till the age of 18. There is no upper age limit as long as you are deemed fit for a general anaesthetic.
What is the recovery time for breast reduction surgery?
This largely depends on the technique used and can be as little as a few days. However, in most cases Mr Jallali recommends at least one week off work and two weeks avoiding heavy exercise or tasks. Mr Jallali’s patients are allowed to shower on the first postoperative day and all the stitches are dissolvable. Mr Jallali does not use a drain postoperatively. You will need to stay in a sports bra for six weeks after a breast reduction but will be dressing free after two weeks.
What is the cost of breast reduction surgery London?
This largely depends on the technique and the individual. The package prices (which include all fees and follow ups) range from £ 5500-8000. It is generally adviced that the breast tissue which is removed is sent for histology (microscopic examination) and this can cost a further £ 500.
What are the complications associated with breast reduction
