Breast Reduction


Breast Reduction, clinically known as Reduction Mammoplasty, is a transformative surgical procedure designed to reduce overly large breasts’ size, weight, and volume. This operation is often a beacon of relief for women who suffer from a range of physical discomforts, emotional challenges, and functional limitations due to the disproportionate size of their breasts.

Factors contributing to the development of excessively large breasts can be multifaceted, encompassing genetic predispositions, hormonal imbalances, pregnancies, and significant weight fluctuations. The primary objective of this surgery is to create a breast size that is proportionate to the patient’s overall body structure, thereby alleviating the physical and emotional burdens associated with large breasts.


The pathway to a successful Breast Reduction begins with an exhaustive initial consultation. During this crucial meeting, the surgeon performs a comprehensive evaluation that includes a detailed medical history, a thorough physical examination focusing on the quality of breast tissue and skin elasticity, and possibly imaging studies for a complete understanding of the breast anatomy.

This consultation serves as a confidential platform for patients to discuss their specific concerns, aesthetic goals, and any apprehensions or questions they may have. Based on this multifaceted dialogue, the surgeon formulates a surgical plan that is uniquely tailored to meet the patient’s objectives.

Due to the intricacy of this procedure, general anaesthesia will be recommended. The type of anaesthesia used is determined through a collaborative decision-making process that takes into account the patient’s overall health status, any pre-existing medical conditions, and their comfort level with anaesthesia. While local anaesthesia coupled with sedation is often the preferred choice, general anaesthesia may be recommended for more extensive or complex surgical interventions.

Breast Reduction is a highly individualised surgical procedure that employs a variety of techniques based on the patient’s unique needs. Incisions may be made following several patterns, including a keyhole or racquet-shaped pattern around the areola, extending vertically down from the areola to the breast crease, or an inverted T or anchor-shaped incision following the breast crease’s natural curve. The surgeon meticulously removes excess breast tissue, fat, and skin through these strategically placed incisions. The remaining breast tissue is then reshaped, and the nipple and areola are elevated to a more natural, youthful position. Once the desired modifications are achieved, the incisions are closed using advanced suturing techniques. Topical antibacterial ointments and sterile dressings may be applied to minimize the risk of post-operative infections and aid in healing.


PLEASE NOTE: While some results may be visible sooner, final results often take a few months for swelling to fully subside.

You may choose to undergo a Breast Reduction for a number of reasons:

Breast Reduction offers a plethora of aesthetic benefits. The procedure can dramatically improve the proportionality of the breasts in relation to the rest of the body. It enhances the overall contour and shape of the breasts, corrects asymmetry, and can even improve the position and size of the areola, contributing to a more balanced and harmonious physique.
One of the most compelling functional benefits of Breast Reduction is alleviating physical discomfort. Symptoms such as chronic back pain, neck strain, and skin irritation or chafing beneath the breast folds are often significantly reduced or completely alleviated. The surgery can also make it easier to engage in physical activities, thereby improving the patient’s overall quality of life and physical health.
The aesthetic and functional improvements achieved through Breast Reduction often have a profound psychological impact. Many patients report a considerable boost in self-esteem, emotional well-being, and body image. This newfound self-confidence often translates into enhanced social interactions and professional opportunities, enriching the patient’s life on multiple levels.

Post Op

"Really informative Consultation. Mark and Steve are great. It was a really nice place and the staff were lovely!"


Some patients may experience temporary or permanent changes in nipple or breast sensation. However, most patients regain normal sensation over time.
Ideal candidates are those in good health, non-smokers, and those experiencing physical discomfort or self-consciousness due to overly large breasts. It’s also important that patients have realistic expectations.
Breast reduction can be combined with procedures like breast lift or liposuction for more comprehensive results.
The number of cup sizes reduced varies for each individual, depending on their desired outcome and anatomical factors. On average, patients may go down 1 to 3 cup sizes.
Age is not the sole determinant. The procedure is suitable for individuals with fully developed breasts and those experiencing physical discomfort or other issues due to their breast size. It’s essential to consult with a surgeon to determine individual suitability.
