Breast Reduction by SKIN CLUB Cosmetic Doctors
Not all women want large-sized breasts. Some want to have that perfect hourglass shape that is more appealing and beautiful.
Here are some of the common reasons why women want to reduce the size and weight of their breasts:
Breast reduction surgery may not be ideal for all women. During your consultation, your plastic surgeon will evaluate the condition of your breasts and body to determine if breast reduction is the right choice for you.
Here are some factors that make you a good candidate for breast reduction:
Just like any other cosmetic treatment, breast reduction Melbourne offers plenty of benefits to many women. Indeed, patients will feel gratified and comfortable after a breast reduction plastic surgery.
The following are some of the wonders that this breast enhancing procedure can provide:
Breast Reduction surgery is a highly complex breast surgery as it combines breast lift surgery with breast tissue reduction and nipple repositioning to ensure a symmetrical, proportionate and natural-looking result.
Breast reduction begins with the administration of general anaesthesia. When the treatment site is ready, your plastic surgeon will mark the incision sites as well as the complex preoperative marking for the skin and tissue excision and possible fat extraction.
After removing the excess breast tissue, your doctor may recommend the extraction of excess fat through liposuction. After all excess breast structures are removed, the breast tissue is remodelled. This includes repositioning the nipple.
When everything is set, the incision is sutured with soluble PDO threads to ensure that the incisions will heal optimally. Afterwhich, your plastic surgeon will suit you up with a compression garment to help blood and oxygen flow optimally.
You may be asked to stay at least overnight at the hospital for observation and to ensure that you will not feel any discomfort immediately after the surgery.
On average, it takes approximately between 2 to3 hours. The duration of the procedure depends on the size of the excision as well as the type of incision made. If the procedure involves nipple repositioning and liposuction, these procedures may add up to the duration of the breast reduction surgery.
Large breasts are not only characterized by subcutaneous fat. Generally, they are composed of skin, glandular muscle, tissue and fat. Thus, liposuction alone may not provide the results that you are expecting.
Some large breasts primarily consist of glandular muscle and tissue. In which case, liposuction may not resolve this concern.
In most instances, many women have severe skin laxity that causes the drooping or sagging of the breasts. This, in turn, requires the excision of excess skin. Having liposuction alone may not solve the issue of excess skin as it is not a treatment for loss of skin elasticity.
Immediately after the procedure, you may feel somewhat woozy as the anaesthetics begin to wear off. Your plastic surgeon may prescribe some post-operative medication to help ease the pain and discomfort.
Before your plastic surgeon sends you home, your surgical wounds are dressed and the drains are removed. After your hospital discharge, you may experience some swelling and redness in the treatment area. However, these downtimes will resolve on their won within the next 24 to 48 hours.
As the results settle in, you may notice that the final scar pattern around the areola and the nipple have settled vertically down from the nipple.
Breast reduction surgery involves incisions that are strategically made on the breast area. The aim is to minimize the appearance of scars for more optimum results.
Here are the 2 types of incisions for breast reduction surgery:
This is also known as the anchor technique where an inverted T incision pattern is made under the breast running both horizontally and vertically. This is a common incision technique that uses the blood supply coming from below the breast.
This technique is also called le jour or lollipop technique. The vertical incision helps maintain the supply of blood coming from the upper and lateral parts of the breast. It aims to limit the occurrence of scars for a more youthful and natural appearance.
The initial consultation involves the evaluation of your breast and body structure to determine the amount of breast tissue, fat and skin to be removed during your breast reduction surgery. After a thorough assessment, your plastic surgeon will create a diagnosis and treatment plan that will address your concerns.
Breast reduction is an intricate plastic surgery procedure that needs utmost decision-making. Thus, you are welcome to get a second opinion from your trusted plastic surgeons in Melbourne, Australia.

Just like other surgical procedures, reduction mammoplasty breast surgery carries risks. These risks and complications may occur post-operative. However, patients can minimize these by diligently following the post-surgery patient care that their plastic surgeons provide.
Although breast reduction surgery is generally safe and reliable, many patients tend to neglect their duty to care for themselves after the treatment. Thus, impairing their healing or recovery process.
The following are possible complications that may occur after a breast reduction:
In case, any of these adverse effects may occur, please call your trusted surgeons in Melbourne immediately.
The heaviness of the weight of the breasts being carried by the brassier adds pressure to the bra straps. This, in turn, pulls the tension on your shoulders, hence causing back pain, neck and shoulder pain and physical discomfort.
An additional benefit that you can get from breast reduction is providing ease and comfort to your shoulders, back and neck. In some cases, plastic surgeons recommend fat transfer to improve the shoulder groves that the bra straps have created over the years.
During your consultation with our plastic surgeons, you will be provided with a breast reduction guide to help you understand what this plastic surgery can offer you.
It constitutes the surgical procedure involved including anaesthetics, complex pre-operative marking, incision patterns, liposuction, the post-operative healing process, emergency numbers to call in case of risks and complications and post-recovery scar.
During recovery, you will be given a list of post-operative patient care guides with which you are expected to diligently and attentively follow. It may include avoiding heavy lifting, surgical scar care, caring for and maintaining your breasts after the reduction procedure.
Your surgeon may also schedule you for a return consultation after about two weeks following the breast surgery. This will help the patient and surgeon reevaluate the success of plastic surgery.
On average, most patients recover within two weeks. However, the healing process varies from one patient to another. This is because each patient has her own coping mechanism and body structure.
During your consultation, your surgeon will discuss how healing can be after a breast plastic surgery procedure.
