Breast reduction is one of the most common breast plastic surgery procedures in Australia. It is an operation that aims to:

  • Reduce the size and weight of the breasts
  • Reduce or improve the size and appearance of the nipple and areola.
  • Improve the overall appearance of the breasts.

Heavy breasts can lead to debilitating problems such as neck and back pain, posture problems and skin rashes in summer. It can also interfere with everyday life particularly with sport activities or cloth fitting.

In general, breast reduction surgery is a safe and effective procedure with a high level of patient satisfaction.
