Am I a good candidate for a breast reduction procedure?

If you struggle with physical discomfort or emotional distress due to excessively large breasts, you may be an ideal candidate for breast reduction surgery. During a consultation, our experienced surgeons will assess your unique situation and discuss your goals to determine if this procedure is right for you.

Our expert surgeon will also help guide you on if this procedure is the right one for you. Ideally, your breasts would have more glandular tissue than fat for optimal results. We may also recommend a mastopexy, or a breast augmentation using breast implants to enhance the shape or correct saggy breasts.

What is the process for having a breast reduction in Manchester?

Our clinic in Manchester boasts a skilled team of surgeons and a supportive healthcare system dedicated to ensuring your comfort and satisfaction throughout your breast reduction journey. We are here to work with you every step of the way.

Consultation and pre-surgery

Your breast reduction journey begins with a comprehensive breast reduction surgery consultation. During this meeting, you’ll have the opportunity to discuss your concerns, expectations, and medical history with our surgeon. Together, we’ll develop a personalised surgical plan tailored to your needs.

Pre-surgery we strongly advise you to stop smoking and also cease any herbal supplements. Your surgeon will provide you with a plan for any other medications you are taking.

Breast Reduction

If you choose to have your breast reduction in Manchester at the Breast and Body clinic, we will support you from your first consultation, right through to post-op and recovery.

The procedure

Breast reduction surgery is performed under general anaesthetic to ensure your comfort. Our skilled surgeon will carefully create incisions before removing excess fat, breast tissue and skin to reshape your breasts to your desired size and appearance.

Recovery and after-care

After the procedure, we provide all our breast reduction patients with detailed post-surgery instructions to support recovery and the healing process. You can expect some bruising and swelling initially, but these symptoms gradually subside. Your surgeon will also prescribe you pain relief, and advise you to avoid strenuous exercise for up to six weeks post-op.

Our dedicated team will be with you every step of the way to address any questions or concerns you may have during your recovery.

Are there risks or complications with breast reduction surgery?

As with all surgical procedures, breast reduction surgery carries some risks and complications. These may include:

  • scarring
  • changes in nipple sensation
  • potential complications related to anaesthesia
  • bleeding
  • red or lumpy breasts
  • unevenly shaped breasts or nipples
  • delayed wound healing

Patient Reviews


I had three procedures done with Mr Siddiqui, lip lift, breast implants and labiaplasty. I did a lot of research into surgeons and Mr Siddiqui stood out to me online he has a great profile and amazing reviews. My first consultation went really well, I was completely at ease, Mr Siddiqui explained everything thoroughly. A few weeks later I was in hospital having my procedures done, I was very well looked after and everything went smoothly. The aftercare was great. Between appointments Mr Siddiqui was only a WhatsApp or text message away, he was in touch everyday to begin and if I had any concerns he always replied quickly. I’m 6 weeks on from my procedures now and I am healing well and feeling great. I am very happy with my results. I can’t recommend Mr Siddiqui enough.

So glad I chose Dr Siddiqui, after searching for a qualified surgeon he stood out from the rest! He sounded perfect for my breast reduction. When I went for my consultation he made me feel at ease and explained everything very clearly. He was so nice and suggested a size that would suit my frame. His secretary Rachel, clinic team and staff were also very nice! Surgery went really well. Dr Siddiqui gave me his mobile number to text or call if I needed anything. The morning after surgery he messaged me to see how I was, which I thought was lovely. My recovery was really good, I was back at work a week later. I am very pleased with the result, just love my new size. Dr Siddiqui is an excellent surgeon and I highly recommend him.

I highly recommend Mr Siddiqui to anyone who is considering a cosmetic procedure. Thanks to the extremely positive reviews provided by his past and present patients, it was very easy to choose him. From initial contact with his secretary and two meetings with Mr Siddiqui prior to my procedure and the aftercare I received, I could not have wished for a more professional, caring, and high-quality medical experience.

Incision placement can vary based on surgical techniques and your individual needs. Common incision options include around the areola (periareolar), vertically down from the areola to the breast crease (lollipop), or using an anchor incision.

Breast reduction results are typically long-lasting. However, factors such as ageing, weight gain, and pregnancy can influence breast shape and size over time.

In some cases, lifestyle changes, physical therapy, or wearing well-fitted bras with proper support may alleviate discomfort associated with large breasts. However, this may not be enough to reduce the impact of large, heavy breasts.

Breast reduction surgery typically removes excess tissue and fat permanently. While breasts can change due to factors like excess weight gain or hormonal fluctuations, the removed tissue does not grow back.

The extent of reduction in cup size varies depending on your initial bust size, the surgical technique, and individual goals. On average, breast reduction can reduce cup size by one to several sizes. Your surgeon will discuss the expected outcome during your consultation.

A decade or two ago many women were unable to breastfeed after their breast reductions. But today, with surgeons using techniques that preserve the function of lactation-related structures, it’s highly likely you will be able to breastfeed.
