Many women with large breasts have started to realize how reducing their breast size can improve their lives. Even men with gynecomastia, a condition in which male breasts are abnormally large, have benefitted from breast reduction surgery.
Enhance your self-esteem and relieve the physical symptoms that often come with large breasts with breast reduction surgery. Whether you’re experiencing pain as a result of your disproportionately large breasts or have more aesthetic concerns, the experienced team of plastic surgeons at Sthetix can deliver fantastic, natural-looking results.
Pain Relief and Medical Benefits
Extremely large breasts can be a physical burden, causing neck or back pain that can get in the way of daily life and limit many activities. For women with very large breasts, even a sports bra provides no relief when jogging. Many women also have breathing issues or experience irritation of the skin under the breasts.
Women and men may also pursue breast reduction surgery for cosmetic purposes. They may be self-conscious about having asymmetrical breasts and wish to have them more evenly sized. Some patients want to reshape their breasts because they are unhappy with their size or firmness.
Men with conditions like gynecomastia may choose to have breast reduction surgery if it does not resolve itself by adulthood. Gynecomastia is a condition that stems from an imbalance between testosterone and estrogen, which causes enlarged breast glands in men and boys.

How Does Breast Reduction Work?
A common misconception about breast reduction is that it is the exact opposite of breast augmentation. In fact, these two surgeries are very different. Breast reduction surgery uses one of three techniques:
- The Inverted-T Breast Reduction. Three incisions are made, allowing for the best degree of reshaping sagging or asymmetrical breasts.
- The Vertical Breast Reduction. Primarily used for a moderate reduction, this technique has only two incisions and results in less scarring.
- Liposuction. This option isn’t for everyone since removing fat tissue from the breasts is only useful for a small reduction in size.
Breast reduction has one of the highest rates of satisfaction among cosmetic procedures, with a marked difference in the quality of life before and after surgery. The experienced surgeons at Sthetix will discuss your expectations and work to achieve the most realistic results.
Are You Ready for a Breast Reduction?
Breast reduction surgery is a safe cosmetic procedure when performed by BAPRAS registered plastic surgeons, like the team at Sthetix. It’s important not to confuse safe with simple. A consultation with Sthetix consultant surgeons will ensure you are fully informed about the extent of the procedure and what you can expect.
During your consultation, we’ll review your medical history, arrange a pre-operative assessment, and discuss your reasons for seeking a breast reduction. You should be prepared to be completely open about any physical or emotional issues you’ve experienced.
had breast reduction/lift surgery on 15 May with Mr Alvi. From the outset Mr Alvi made me feel relaxed and explained thoroughly what the procedure involved. I cannot praise Mr Alvi, and all the Sthetix staff highly enough. The difference this procedure has made to my confidence is amazing. Mr Alvi has surpassed all my expectations of the results I was expecting. In my opinion he is a perfectionist with the highest standards.
