BREAST REDUCTION AND LIFT SURGERY IN CAMBRIDGE
Many women are conscious about the size and shape of their breasts – and it’s this self-consciousness, along with underlining health issues which leads thousands of women each year to have cosmetic surgery. However, here at Safer Cosmetic Surgery we appreciate that the decision to undergo breast reduction or breast uplift surgery can be extremely daunting; which is why we’ve produced this guide into what you can expect before and during both surgical procedures.
Before opting for either breast reduction surgery or uplift surgery (mastopexy), we recommend seeking advice from an experienced, trained and professional surgeon.
During the consultation for either procedure, the consultant should take your medical history, including any details of previous breast surgery you have had. Once they have this, they’ll then be able to discuss the best surgical procedure for yourself, explaining what’s involved along with examining you and showing you what the effect may be following surgery.
Breast Reduction Surgery:
Whilst large breasts may be a desire for some women, in reality large and heavy breasts can have serious consequences on someone’s health. Not only can they contribute to serious neck and back pain, but in some cases large breasts can also cause skin irritation, skeletal deformities, breathing difficulties and psychological issues.
The surgery for breast reduction requires fat, glandular tissue and skin from the breast to be removed. The procedure is carried out under general anaesthetic and normally lasts for two hours; although an overnight stay in hospital for up-to two nights should be expected too.
Following the procedure, the finished result should be smaller, firmer and lighter breasts, leaving you more comfortable whilst sunbathing outside your Majorca apartments.
Unlike breast reduction, uplift surgery doesn’t aim to change the size of the breasts. Instead by removing sections of redundant skin around the breast and shaping the tissue, the surgery will restore an attractive shape to your bosom. However, it’s worth noting that uplift surgery doesn’t prevent drooping later down the line.
Both breast reduction and breast uplift surgery come with side-effects and their risks; so if you’re in any doubt here at Safer Cosmetic Surgery, we’d recommend fully researching the procedures and asking your consultant as many questions as you can.

ARRANGING A BREAST REDUCTION CONSULTATION IN CAMBRIDGE
The physical disadvantages which accompany large breasts are severe, and many women have difficulty living their day to day lives due to the pain which they experience. Breast Reduction surgery (Reduction Mammoplasty) significantly reduces the adverse symptoms by reducing the excess weight which many women have to carry around with them every day. When considering cosmetic surgery, whether breast reduction or otherwise, the team here at Safer Cosmetic Surgery believe that it is vital that you arrange a consultation with your surgeon before committing to undergo any surgical procedures.
Large, heavy and uncomfortable breasts are not just a physical disadvantage. With today’s pressure, many women have become self-conscious of their body and this can cause emotional and physiological strain as well as physical. Unlike nipping to your local hairdressers, breast reduction surgery demands the professional attention of a qualified surgeon and a consultation.
Why is it Important to Arrange a Consultation?
Arranging a consultation prior to cosmetic surgery is crucial, as your surgeon will be able to give you invaluable information regarding the surgical procedure. The consultation will also talk you through the entire procedure, outline the positional risks through a discussion of the symptoms you may have after the surgery, and the overall recovery process.
Things to do Before Going to Your Consultation
It is valuable to research the procedure before attending your consultation. Here at Safer Cosmetic Surgery, we would advise that you write a list of questions you would like to be answered. Some questions you may wish to consider are;
1. How many breast reduction surgeries have you performed per year? 2. What complications may arise and what is the likelihood of them arising? 3. When can I resume normal activities? 4. How long should I take off work?
How to Book a Consultation with a Surgeon You Can Trust
Simply go online and search through the directory of surgeons here at Safer Cosmetic Surgery. All surgeons are UK accredited, so finding a surgeon to perform a breast reduction is simpler and safer. If you require more information contact us on 0800 622 6262.
STEPS TO ARRANGING A TUMMY TUCK IN CAMBRIDGE
Giving birth is one of the most rewarding things that you can go through in life, due to the overwhelming feeling of bringing a new life into the world. However, for many women the thought of the excess baby weight staying months after can be daunting and despite the many diets available, it still may not be possible to go back to the svelte figure you once had. If you’re currently in this situation, then you may be considering a tummy tuck Cambridge and here at Safer Cosmetics Surgery, we’ve compiled this guide of how to arrange a tummy tuck.
You may believe that surgery is the best option to remove the unwanted skin and fat that’s been left following the birth of your child. However as with all surgery, abdominoplasty isn’t 100% safe so it’s important to ensure that you’re fully aware of the facts surrounding the surgery before making your final decision. To get the full facts surrounding the procedure it’s important to find the right surgeon for you.
Finding a Surgeon:
When looking for a surgeon to provide the abdominoplasty surgery, it’s important to ensure that the surgeon is a member of BAAPS/BARPS. This way you can be certain that they have undergone the relevant training – including a six year training programme in an NHS training hospital. All members of BAAPS/BARPS are kept up-to-date with advances in surgery whilst their work is constantly monitored by the General Medical Council.
Once you’ve found a surgeon within your area who you feel comfortable with, it’s advisable to arrange a consultation with them. During the consultation they’ll be able to answer any questions you may have surrounding the surgery required for a tummy tuck, whilst also assessing your personal needs to ensure that you’re an ideal candidate for the procedure.
Some surgeons may also request that before the surgery takes place, you’re near to your personal weight; although they’ll also understand that this isn’t always possible.
Following a tummy tuck it’s recommended to stay overnight in the hospital so that trained staff are on hand should you feel any discomfort. Although being away from your newborn may not be ideal, a maternity nurse will be able to provide care for your child, as you rest and recover.
