Anca Breahna is a renowned cosmetic surgeon who is available for breast reduction surgery at the superb Grosvenor private hospital in Chester.
Also known as a reduction mammaplasty, the breast reduction surgery is an operation that can have a profound impact on a woman’s life.
As a leading female surgeon, Anca Breahna is also acutely aware of the importance of this type of treatment.
In this page, we will outline key details about a reduction mammaplasty and also give some information about why Miss Breahna stands apart from other surgeons in Chester.
Why Have a Breast Reduction?
A breast reduction will never be an operation entered into lightly, often the decision to have surgery comes after years of discomfort and potential issues of self-confidence and self-esteem.
Breasts that are too large can cause neck, shoulder and back pain and also lead to poor posture. These issues can then become self-fulfilling, posture will get worse and back pain increasingly pronounced.
Overly large breasts can also create a rash under the breast.
They may impact activities such as sport and exercise. The breasts might also be a cause for concern and lead to lowered self-esteem, this potentially impacting so many areas of life, including work and personal relationships.
A breast reduction can therefore have a profound impact both on a person’s health and their confidence, the two often working together. Post-surgery, it can be a delight to see the positive impact that has materialised.
What is the Procedure?
The procedure actually begins with a detailed consultation. The consultation is of prime importance, it is the prospective patient’s chance to talk and for the surgeon to listen.
The impact of the breasts can be assessed, the patient can talk about the results they hope to achieve, the reduction they are looking for.
The surgeon can then advise and offer the best plan of action.
However, the consultation is also for the patient to get a sense of whether this is the surgeon for them. Do they have the relevant experience, do they have the right ethos and manner with patients? Do they inspire confidence?
Post consultation, there should be a period whereby the patient can decide, without obligation, if surgery truly is for them.
If surgery is ultimately undertaken, it would begin with the breasts being drawn on to show where the incisions are to be made and the nipple placed.
The incisions are typically made around the nipple and vertically from the nipple downwards to the crease below the breast.
As the breast tissue is removed, the nipple is then repositioned in accordance with the markings.
In common with many leading surgeons, Miss Breahna uses supero-medial pedicle with either an ‘inverted T’ or a vertical scar technique – the precise approach used will depend on the individual patient.
Breast reduction surgery will require an overnight stay in hospital and is performed under general anaesthetic.
Does Breast Reduction Have Risks?
There is some degree of risk with any surgery, but breast reduction is considered to be very safe – and Anca Breahna is an expert in the surgery.
There are the uncommon risks linked with any surgery – wound infection, reaction to anaesthetic and delayed wound healing among them.
Specific risks would be nipple necrosis, asymmetry and poor scarring.
There is likely to be a degree of pain – typically managed by standard pain killers – swelling, bruising and potential short term loss of feeling in the breast region.
How Long Is The Recovery From Reduction Mammaplasty?
Some time off work may be required and a breast reduction will typically have a two-week recovery period to enable successful healing.
Driving should be possible after two weeks, but it may be up to 12 weeks before strenuous exercise such as returning to the gym is possible.
Miss Breahna would answer any questions relating to specific activities.
How Much Does A Breast Reduction Cost?
Breast reduction is a major procedure that requires the surgeon fee, overnight stay in a private hospital and also the specialist services off the anaesthetist.
A complete quote would be provided at consultation, prices start from £5,500.
The Impact of a Breast Reduction
The impact can be shown through the words of previous patients.
“Thank you so much for my breast reduction, you have honestly changed my life! You are so very talented at what you do! I will be forever grateful!”
“Thank you so much for the excellent piece of surgery supported by a professional and friendly team.”
