Our team has years of experience meaning you are in excellent hands

Breast Reduction is a common type of surgery which removes excessive and unwanted volume from the breasts and reshapes the remainder, aiming to leave the patient with a pleasing, smaller and much more comfortable breast size. 

Common Reasons for Breast Reductions

Typical reasons for breast reductions include:

  • Symptomatic macromastia, large breasts causing chronic neck, back and shoulder pain which often results in patients needing to take medication.
  • Breast Ptosis which is the excessive drooping of the breasts often caused by the failure of the supporting breast structures on the chest wall. Causes of Breast Ptosis can be aging, weight loss, pregnancy, smoking or having large heavy breasts.
  • Therapeutic Mammoplasty as part of a surgery relating to having breast cancer and needing part of or all of the breast removed.

In each of these cases the nipple areola complex (the nipple and surrounding skin) have been repositioned. The amount of breast volume removed is tailored to the patients needs. Scaring typically fades over the 6-12 months after your surgery.
