Harley Medical Group reveals that, as Ulrika Johnson grabs the
headlines for her reduced and reshaped breasts, the trend for
down-sizing has hit its 26 clinics with breast reduction surgery
up 7.8%. In addition, 75% of women who have had a breast augmentations
at The Harley Medical Group in the last six months, opted to go
one or two cup sizes.
Riccardo Frati, surgeon for The Harley Medical Group, comments
reduction surgery: "Many women feel over-sized breasts
dominate their appearance, some find it makes exercising very
difficult and in extreme cases large breasts can cause physical
discomfort including backache, neck pain and poor posture. A breast
reduction will take away excess tissue, fat and skin to give smaller,
better proportioned breasts."
Dale, director at The Harley Medical Group, adds: "Over the
last year we have seen a definite move towards smaller, more natural
looking breast shapes, as illustrated by today's breast reduction
figures. Where women are choosing to have breast
enlargement surgery they're opting to go up just one or two
sizes with C/D cup the most popular size. Contrary to popular
belief, most cosmetic surgery patients want to fit in - not stand
reduction surgery usually takes three hours to complete, depending
on the size of the breasts. The operation is carried out under
general anaesthetic and patients stay in hospital for one or two
nights. Breast reduction patients are required to wear a supportive
bra for up to three months to keep the breasts well supported
whilst healing takes place and ensure the best possible results.

surgery should ensure that their surgeon is trained and registered
in the GMC Specialist Register as a plastic surgeon and ensure
