Breast reduction NHS

Edited , 2 users are following.

I've been suffering with really bad back pain because of my breasts (I'm a 32g). My GP referred me to see a surgeon quite quickly. During my consultation he said I was a very good candidate and said I actually matched more of the criteria than I thought I did. Only thing is as I smoke I need to quit first and as I haven't had physio I would also need to have this. The surgeon said he would give me 4 months to quit and get some physio to help with the pain in the mean time then I would need to come back for another consultation so I could be put on a waiting list. Unsure if this means it's been aporoved/will be approved given i quit smoking? Also how long did people wait to have the operation after the consultation? I got my consultation really quickly so I'm hoping it won't be long if I'm accepted!

    I probably won't be much helpful. I had breast reduction abroad, so I payed for it myself.  I used to smoke but I quit one year before I had surgery. For me it was quite fast process, I think I had operation 2 - 3 months since the consultation at Forme Clinic.
