Very large breasts (macromastia or breast hypertrophy) can create social, functional and physical concerns for many women.
Macromastia may occur due to excessive glandular development during puberty or as a result of weight gain, and can cause back and neck pain as well as rashes in the inframammary crease (the fold underneath the breasts). Patients may also experience difficulties with fitting their clothing, reduced clothing options, which can lead to self-confidence issues and over all embarrassment.
Breast reduction surgery removes excess breast tissue and skin to redefine and reshape the breast to a size more compatible with your own body build. Breast reduction also reduces and reshapes the areolas and moves them to fit the new size. If you are concerned that your breasts are too heavy and cause you back pain, please call our office to book a consultation.

Miss Breahna is a very approachable person and has a lovely kind manner. She explained my procedure for the removal of sebaceous hyperplasia extremely well. I was very pleased with the work which she did and would have no hesitation in recommending her.
I had a breast reduction procedure with Miss Anca Breahna in May 2023 @ The Nuffiled in Chester. From my fist consultation to the operation and then onto the fantastic after care, Miss Breahna has been absolutely incredible. Always professional, respectful, considerate, compassionate and has always put my wellbeing at the forefront of everything and has made me feel like a friend rather than a consultant:patient relationship. I would highly recommend Miss Breahna should you want such a procedure such as a breast reduction. I feel absolutely fantastic, much happier in myself and the way I now look thanks to the amazing work of Miss Breahna. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Very pleased to have been seen by Ms Breahna for a FDL Tummy Tuck and Gynecomastia correction. She is very professional, caring and a master in the profession. I am extremely happy with my results at 6 months on and finally have the body confidence I have been lacking. Its always been a pleasure to speak with Ms Breahna with any questions or concerns I have had and the recovery journey has been straightforward. Would highly, highly recommend!
Excellent service. Just had a tummy tuck and liposuction. Dr Breahna is an amazing surgeon; whilst taking a professional approach she is also very caring and empathetic to ones needs. I can't wait to see the results once swelling has gone down.Huge thank you to my anesetist who was amazing.
From my first consultation Miss Breahna put my mind at ease when I found I had BCC. On the day of my procedure I felt quite nervous but Miss Breahna and her wonderful staff made me feel relaxed. The care and after care was second to none. I cannot recommend Miss Breahna highly enough. She is an amazing plastic surgeon! I am so delighted and grateful with the results. Thank you so so much.
Anca is amazing. I swear she has magic fingers! August 2021 I had surgery and she completely exceeded my expectations. From the first moment we met, to the surgery and finally the post op consultations she was so caring and attentive, I was sad to know I won’t be seeing her any time soon.Everything was addressed in the first consultation; pros, cons, expectations, surgery options and recovery.She was so easy to contact at any moment. I had the easiest recovery and that’s with thanks to Anca being so thorough and her incredible skills.I honestly can’t thank her enough.
A truly amazing and caring consultant. Miss Breahna made me feel at ease from start to finish with my surgery and I am absolutely thrilled with my results, she has given me my life back, I can’t thank her enough.
Had such a good experience, was talked through everything before I had my surgery all the way up to moments before . Was very reassured and felt welcomed . My emails were always responded to straight away if I ever had a problem , Regular check ups all the time . I feel so much more confident and it’s also helped me better with day to day activities. Thankyou so much
Sent on behalf of Jenny PowerANCA covered everything - both positives and negatives to enable me to make the right decision for a breast reduction.She put me at ease as was very caring even personally managed my after care with weekly visits I had no pain in anyway.I could not be happier with the result and only wish I had done it years ago as feel amazingI would recommend Anca 5/5
I can’t thank Anca enough! I have been so self-conscious about myself and I can finally look in the mirror and LOVE myself! She has done an absolute AMAZING job and she is so so lovely, I can’t thank her enough for everything she has done from start to finish. She made me feel so comfortable the whole time. Thank you Anca! See you in the new year :)
I had a breast reduction in march. dr Breahna provided outstanding care. she was there with me for my dressing changing appointments even though she didn't have to. She is very warm welcoming and friendly. I would recommend dr Breahna to anyone.
Ms Breahne performed breast reduction 2 weeks ago. She has done a fantastic job. She made me feel at ease and i had confidence in her from the first meeting we had. She has a very caring personality, a professional with a sense of humour. Because of the procedure that she carried out, my recovery has been very easy and uneventful even though I am classed as high risk. I am so grateful to her, and cannot recommend her and all the nursing staff enough.
After my first consultation with Anca I came away feeling 100% confident she was the surgeon I wanted to undertake my breast surgery. Right from the start Anca was friendly, professional and punctual, but more importantly she was realistic about my expectations. Anca gave me several chances to discuss and question the procedure, and ever put me under any pressure to go ahead. She was willing to spend time with me looking at before and after pictures.My op went ahead. All went well. She visited me twice during my overnight stay at the Grosvenor, Chester. The nurses spoke very highly of her as a surgeon. Unfortunately 2-3 wks post op I developed an infection due to my body rejecting the sutures. I’ve since been back to Chester every Monday, for the last 5 weeks, to see Anca and she has seen me in person every time to assess and dress the wound. She has made me feel very comfortable to contact her at any time if I have any worries.I’m now well on the mend and I love what Anca has helped me to achieve. Her aftercare is amazing!You certainly couldn’t go wrong choosing Anca Breahna as your surgeon!Thank you AncaJoanne White
Cannot recommend Miss Breahna enough from start to finish the whole experience has been excellent! I had numerous consultations where Miss Breahna discussed everything in detail and answered every question I had. I’ve always felt at ease with Miss Breahna and always felt right from the initial consultation she was the surgeon for me.
Miss Breahna removed a cancerous nodule from my forehead in March 2021. I was quite nervous when I arrived at the hospital, but when I was greeted by a member of her team I started to feel calmer as they were so professional and friendly.Once inside the theatre Miss Breahna and her team helped me to feel relaxed and comfortable throughout, the team atmosphere was friendly and upbeat during my operation and I was looked after wonderfully. I would recommend Miss Breahna and her team to anyone requiring this type of surgery.Kate Hodson
I had a breast reduction March 2021 and I couldn’t be happier with the results. From First meeting Dr Breahna she has been brilliant, the procedure and recovery were thoroughly explained and she has been there every step of the way. 6 weeks on and I’m still receiving incredible care in my check ups and any questions I have there’s some one available. I recommend Dr Breahna to anyone who is considering a breast reduction, she has completely changed my life and I couldn’t be more thankful.
Words cannot explain how much Miss Breahna has changed my life for the better! From the first consultation, she listened to my needs and made me feel comfortable and in good hands. On the day of my surgery, she was caring and attentive and even took the time to call my family once I was in recovery. She always made time to answer any questions or concerns that I had. There are no words to express how grateful I am for Miss Breahna's professionalism and skill. Her help has had such a positive impact on my life. I cannot recommend her enough.
I have my initial breast augmentation in 2004, after 16 years I thought they need to come out and I didn’t want them replacing. I did a lot of research on 3 different surgeons in my area and made appointment's to see all 3 in October 2020, my first consultation with Miss Breahna was really informative and she made me feel really at ease, I liked her so much I cancelled the other appointments.I had my procedure at Nuffield hospital in Chester in Jan 2021, the surgery went really well I stayed in overnight and back at work 3 days later.I am really happy with the new me and cant thank Miss Breahna enough for her professionalism and care throughout my journey, just need to save up for a facelift now 😊
