Breast Reduction Surgery can be life changing and have a dramatic impact on health and fitness too. Imagine a procedure that not only reduces the size and weight of the breast, but also eliminates chronic back pain, difficulty exercising, shortness of breath and a lighter version of you.
Breast Reduction Surgery to reduce the size of your breasts can leave you feeling more confident in your interactions and allow you to undertake day to day activities with more ease. We speak with patients who have suffered for many years with heavy, undulous breasts which have caused them to avoid swim suits, stay away from certain clothing and many who have struggled to find bra’s and suitable underwear too which they feel comfortable in and that offers the right amount of support.
More than that, ladies have come to see us, complaining of shortness of breath, daily struggles with exercise and a real strain on their shoulders causing headaches and, in some cases, a hunched posture. How frustrating for these women who complained of being short of breath or tired quickly because of the additional weight of their chest.
Numerous patients told us that they struggled to get comfortable at night and this missed sleep caused issues with daily motivation and exercise. We also heard from ladies who lived each day with terrible back and neck pains and even some who experienced numbness.
Working out with large, heavy breasts isn’t easy either, what about a sports bra, and the difficulty of getting one that fits and offers the right amount of support. Breast reduction surgery and achieving a smaller breast size allows women the opportunity to be active and live an overall healthier lifestyle.
Following their operation, women reported;
– A more varied, unlimited wardrobe choice
– An increase in their self-esteem
– Improved wellbeing and mental attitude
– Health benefits including lowered cholesterol and no more headaches
– Physical benefits like fitness and improved cardio
– Improved sleep and relaxation
Following surgery, patients can live their lives without restrictions, without additional weight to carry around and with an improved healthy lifestyle…but an increase in one’s self-confidence remains at the top of the list and is the number one reason changing breast reduction patients lives.

A surgery journey with excellent results to make life easier.
Sometimes we wish time would move faster, especially in periods like now when we look to a virus free life where we can hug our relatives again. Ordinarily, I think most of us would wish for time to move slower, especially when we think of our bodies! With time and age, comes some unexpected and often undesirable changes. For ladies and our breasts for instance, we may have had children, lost significant weight, or simply gravity has taken hold. Here at Red Rose Desire, the Breast Uplift (Mastpexy) is performed regularly by our very skilled surgeons, on women who would like to uplift and transform their sagging breasts into more youthful and perky bust.
What is a breast uplift?
The breast uplift is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin and reshapes sagging, deflated breasts to give them a natural, perky appearance, without having to change their size. This differs from procedures we provide such as breast reduction, where we decrease the size of the breasts by removing excess skin, tissue and fat, or breast enlargement where we increase the size of the breasts by either inserting silicone cohesive gel implants, or by using fat deposits from other areas of the body.
Breast uplift surgery can be performed with the additional use of breast implants, depending on what result you are looking for. If you do not have the volume to do the procedure without implants, or if you simply desire more volume and bigger breasts, then you might decide you want the implants in addition to the uplift. Our surgeons will focus all aspects of the breast uplift procedure and the options open to you, specifically on your individual needs and desires.
What is the procedure?
Typically, a breast uplift procedure here at Red Rose will involve our skilled surgeons making several incisions to remove any unwanted, loose skin from the breast tissue and then repositioning the nipple so the breasts sit higher on the chest. You will be under general anesthetic for roughly 1.5-3 hours.
Recovery time varies depending on the patient and can be anywhere between 4-6 weeks or longer. We pride in providing you with the best post-op aftercare that we possibly can telling you what to expect, what steps to take, providing any required medication as well as an on-call nurse to help you through recovery and any issues you may encounter.
Who are breast uplifts for?
If you are happy and healthy but feeling a lack of confidence and body positivity due to the stretched skin of your sagging breasts, then you might be the right candidate for a breast uplift. Whether it is pregnancy, nursing, weight loss or simply time and gravity that has taken its toll on your breasts, this surgery could help elevate and reshape your breasts and the way you see and feel with them.
Want to go ahead with a breast uplift?
Why not come in for a complimentary consultation with one of our specialised breast surgeons to discuss everything from the process and procedure to your expectations and desires, answer any questions you may have and find out if you are the right candidate for the breast uplift procedure here at Red Rose Desire.
Breast reduction surgery is one of the top 2 most popular cosmetic surgeries in the UK, along with breast enlargement (augmentation). There were over 4,200 breast reduction surgeries performed across the UK in 2019 with a sharp rise in popularity of male breast reductions in recent years. This number is actually down by 7.5% from the previous year which I believe is attributed to our experienced surgeons ensuring a much larger focus on assessing patients’ mental and psychological health. We believe this is essential in our current climate where social media has driven a very sharp rise in people of all generations looking for a “quick fix”, so we are here to put you first and ensure you are the right candidate for our procedures. We will be the first to advise against a breast reduction if our surgeons feel it necessary.
Are you the right candidate for a breast reduction?
Large, disproportionate breasts can be damaging both physically and mentally, affecting your self-esteem as well as causing pain, discomfort and limitations on physical activities. You might be after the physical relief that will come with a breast reduction, the cosmetic improvement or both, but we usually try not to perform a breast reduction on breasts that are not yet fully developed. We want you to be fully aware and have an understanding of the procedure and the risks as well as managing your expectations before going ahead with any breast reduction surgeries.
Benefits of breast reduction surgery?
There are an array of benefits of breast reduction surgery which can differ from person to person, but these often include the alleviation of back, shoulder and neck pain, chafing and rashes, improving posture, removing discomfort, as well as having an incredibly positive impact on overall self-confidence and self-esteem. Long term benefits of breast reduction include having a larger choice of clothing, including swimwear and underwear, as well as the ability to take part in physical activities that you may have previously been unable to participate in.
What is a breast reduction procedure?
A breast reduction, mammoplasty or a ‘boob reduction’, is a cosmetic procedure which makes your breasts lighter and smaller whilst also improving their shape. This is done by our skilled cosmetic surgeons who will safely put you under general anaesthetic before making an incision on the areola (the dark area surrounding the nipple) and removing some of the fat, skin and breast tissue whilst also reshaping and repositioning your nipples so they are higher up, giving them a perkier, natural and more youthful look. You are essentially receiving a breast uplift in addition to the breast reduction.
The procedure should take around 2-4 hours and we will give you concise and dedicated aftercare to aid you in as swift a recovery as possible.
How long is recovery?
Recovery time for breast reduction surgery varies for everyone but we recommend taking time off work to rest. Our patients tend to recover within one to three weeks and we really recommend having someone there to help you in the first couple of days after the surgery if possible. You will have an on-call nurse should you require any help and we will provide you with all the aftercare information you need as well as any pain medication you might require too.
Are there any risks?
Just like all other operations and surgeries there are risks that can come with breast reductions such as infection or scarring. When you come in for a complimentary consultation with our specialist surgeons, they will happily talk you through all possible risks and complications so you are completely aware and fully informed before making the decision to go ahead with the procedure.
When choosing any surgery it’s important to appoint a company and surgeon that is reputable, accredited, experienced and trustworthy. Your body is invaluable and precious and the best way that you can reduce the risk of any issues is choosing the best people to take care of you, and your surgery, whilst also following any advice given.
Our surgeons will do everything in their power to reduce any risks as much as possible and will provide you with all the pre and post surgery advice required so you can also help to decrease these risks too. Alongside this is the lifetime aftercare we provide you with so you can feel safe and comfortable and we can be with you and support you every step of the way.
