Breast Reduction Reduction Mammoplasty

Breast Reduction can help by reshaping the size of the breasts to suit your figure and lifestyle. The size of the breasts is genetically determined, but hormones and body weight can also influence the size. The most common complaint associated with having large breasts is backache, neck pain, deep grooves in the shoulders and rashes under the breasts during the warmer months. Those following active lifestyles might also experience a considerable amount of discomfort during certain activities.

This operation is carried out in a private hospital and under general anaesthetic. There are many techniques that can be used depending on the size of the breasts. There will be different scar lines in each technique and this needs to be discussed with your surgeon.

The stitches are left for ten to fourteen days and most people are able to resume normal duties within two to three weeks.
