What is breast reduction surgery?

Breast reduction surgery is a procedure that addresses the concerns of overly large breasts through the removal of glandular tissue, skin and excess fat. A breast reduction aims to achieve a more proportionate breast size and relieve the discomfort and pain that can be associated with larger breasts.

Leading an active life is important to many women, but having overly large breasts can limit this ability. Aside from the physical limitations, overly large breasts may also bring with them confidence issues, emotional discomfort and self-esteem problems. A breast reduction may be able to help address some of these issues.

  • You feel your breasts may be too large and are not In proportion with your body
  • Physical activity or exercise is limited by the size of your breasts
  • You find your bra straps dig into your shoulders, leaving indentations
  • When unsupported by a bra, your breasts hang low, and your nipples sit below the crease of your breast
  • The skin beneath the breast crease may be irritated
  • Due to stretched breast skin, you may have enlarged areolas
  • The weight of your breasts means you experience neck, shoulder and back pain
