Our Clinic in Guernsey
St. Peter Port
Quickly becoming one of the most popular cosmetic surgical procedures in the UK, breast reduction surgery is designed to help women who have physical discomfort through having larger breasts.
Breast Reduction in Guernsey & Jersey
Frequently those with larger breasts also find themselves restricted emotionally and in terms of their confidence, as a larger bosom can often get in the way of daily tasks, make finding clothing and underwear more difficult and strenuous, and prevent ease when it comes to exercise or simply lifting and moving about.
Common side effects of having larger breasts are back pain, sensitivity, redness and inflammation under the breast. With a relatively simple procedure that allows women to keep their shape and femininity, while improving their comfort and daily life, the Aesthetic Skin Clinic can modify the shape, size and feel of the breast to suit each patient.
Breast Reduction Surgery Steps in Guernsey & Jersey
Breast reduction surgery can be carried out in many different ways, and ASC seeks to provide the best solution for the presented concern and suitability of each patient. We deduce the best method at consultation stage, where you will be assessed and advised, opening up discussion on relevant medical history and your lifestyle.
There are four basic steps involved with breast reduction, including:
Elevation: Taking into careful consideration the placement of the nipple/areola, a fine incision is made around the circumference to allow the repositioning of the nipple. This allows for a more natural result, because as the rest of the breast size and shape changes, the nipple has to reflect this and compliment these changes. The nipple remains attached to the underlying breast tissue, allowing for sensation to be maintained after the procedure. 9 out of 10 cases sensation is preserved, and women can go on to breast feed following the procedure.
Reduction: We remove a variable amount of tissue from the lower breast and place the scar in the natural curve underneath.
Glanduloplasty: Reducing the width of the breast, the tissue is shaped into a round cone.
Skin tailoring: Usually in the design of an anchor shape, the scars are formed around the outside of the nipple, vertically from the nipple to the crease, then underneath the breast itself.

Due to the way that we reposition the nipple/areola, with the breast tissue still attached, we are able to maintain sensation in the area in 9 out of 10 cases. The majority of women go on to breast-feed or continue to do so after the procedure.
Stop breast feeding at least 3 months before the procedure.
Refrain from taking Aspirin or blood-thinning medications.
Take Arnica for seven days before and after surgery, Mammogram if over 50 or strong family history of breast cancer.
Just a short note to say that I am very pleased with the results of the filler that you used around my mouth yesterday, as well as the usual Botox treatment. I really like the effect especially at the corners of my mouth. Isn’t it amazing how a subtle detail can begin to transform the face!
Thanks for all the treatment and care that you gave me. I very much appreciate it. You gave me so much confidence that I even took my glasses off at the wedding.
From the bottom of my heart or is it the heart of my bottom I want to thank you for helping me look in the mirror without getting upset and being comfortable with what I now see. My grumpy lines look so much better, so thanks. Over the last 10 years you have helped my self-esteem and confidence. I am sure you will understand what I am trying to say is above and beyond a normal thank you.
Just to say thank you so much. The INTRAcel treatment achieved results way beyond my expectations. My skin has improved dramatically and looks absolutely amazing, can’t wait to see the results from a second treatment.
I suffer from acne, along with my sisters and mother. The treatment from the Aesthetic Skin Clinic showed amazing results on my skin within a couple of months, the staff were friendly and understanding. Aesthetic Skin Clinic gave me the chance of living my life again, not hiding away or making excuses to avoid people. Aesthetic Skin Clinic has literally saved me and my family from living a life of being afraid and ashamed of your own reflection.
My story is a simple but powerful one of the amazing results achieved from a Thermage treatment. I was lucky enough to have Dr Curran complete a Thermage facial treatment on me over 4 years ago. 4 years later, I was back in his office for another consultation and Dr Curran showed me my ‘before’ and ‘after’ photos. To my absolute amazement they revealed that after all this time had elapsed I still looked better than the ‘before’ photos.
