BREAST REDUCTION SURGERY

WE CARE ABOUT HOW YOU LOOK AND HOW YOU FEEL

Breast reduction is designed to relieve the physical discomfort often associated with large breasts and to enhance the overall appearance of the breasts. 

What is Breast
REDUCTION Surgery?

A breast reduction may be a good option if you experience many of the symptoms of heavy breasts. These can include breast discomfort, neck, back and shoulder pain, skin irritation underneath the breast fold, indentations from bra straps, difficulty fitting certain clothes or discomfort during exercise.

During a breast reduction procedure, the surgeon removes excess breast tissue and skin, resulting in smaller breasts. The methods of reduction and reshaping vary and depend on the patient’s breast size, needs and expectations.

How it works

1. REFERRAL

We require a GP referral for all surgical procedures. Please book in with your GP to discuss and obtain a referral.

2. CONSULTATION

After referral, you will have two consultations with our team prior to booking in your procedure. The first consultation will be with the surgeon who will be performing your procedure and will be in-person – this is a great time to discuss the specifics of your situation, the outcomes you are hoping to achieve, your personal health and lifestyle concerns and attributes, along with all possible treatment options, the recovery process and any risks involved. Your second consultation may be with your surgeon again, or could be with another of our team who is qualified to consult on your treatment. At least one consultation must be in-person at one of our practices.

After your two consultation appointments, you can provide signed consent for the decided upon treatment and your procedure will be booked in. There is a 7 day cooling off period from the day of your signed consent.

If you are under the age of 18 years, please contact us directly to discuss your consultation process as it will differ to the process for adult patients.

3. THE PROCEDURE

During breast reduction plastic surgery, fat, glandular tissue, and skin are removed from the breasts. This results in smaller, lighter and higher breasts. Breast reduction may help a woman’s breasts become more proportionate with the rest of her body.

4. POST
PROCEDURE
CARE

We recommend a 1-2 night hospital stay after your surgery and that you take at least 2 weeks off work to recover adequately.

Bruising and swelling is to be expected for the first 2-3 weeks after your operation. And a garment will be fitted after your surgery which is required to be worn for 6 weeks.
Gym and vigorous exercise is not recommended for 6 weeks.
Driving is not recommended for 10 days after your surgery.

RISKS AND COMPLICATIONS

Potential risks associated with the procedure comprise bleeding and infection (<5%).

Should significant bleeding occur, it may require a return to the operating room for necessary repair. 

Additional important considerations:

You should expect to observe a scar after the surgery, although it typically fades over time.
