Breast Reduction

What is breast reduction?

Breast reduction is a cosmetic procedure that aims to resize and reshape large heavy breasts. Otherwise known as reduction mammoplasty, this treatment helps reduce the stress of carrying large, elongated, and heavy breasts.

This surgical procedure removes excess skin, fat and breast tissue that contributes to the size and weight of the breast. Breast reduction surgery aims to alleviate the physical discomfort caused by large breasts. It also helps create the profile that will exude the perfect proportion in women.

Melbourne breast reduction surgery can help patients achieve the right size and shape that will give them the ideal overall silhouette of their body. SKIN CLUB cosmetic Doctors offers comprehensive consultation for breast reduction. Contact us today to learn more about this surgical breast enhancement.

All you need to know about
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:

  • Size: overly large for their body stature;
  • Position: drooping or pendulous;
  • Weight: heavy breasts;
  • Pain: causes back, neck and shoulder pain;
  • Skin irritations: caused by the friction in the breast crease or against clothing fabrics;
  • Posture: due to the weight of the breasts, women tend to slouch;
  • Self-consciousness: social discomfort and embarrassment; and
  • Wardrobe woes: most comfortable ready to wear garments can be difficult to find.

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:

  • If you are unhappy with the size of your breasts;
  • You are suffering from neck pain, back pain and shoulder pain because of the weight of your breasts
  • There is a size difference or asymmetry between your breasts and are unhappy with it;
  • You tend to sleep uncomfortably due to your breast size;
  • It is difficult to find well-fitting clothes;
  • When you find just the right size of clothes, they can be uncomfortable to wear;
  • You find it difficult to adjust your brassier; and
  • It is difficult to engage in many activities.

Am I a candidate for breast reduction procedure?

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:

  • Adjusts your breast size to give your overall stature a more balanced physique;
  • Reduces excess breast tissue that aggravates its weight and size;
  • Alleviates drooping, elongated, pendulous and sagging breasts;
  • Creates a good balance to the shape, size and position of the nipple and areola;
  • Offers improved overall body proportions;
  • Smoothens and softens the breast skin; and
  • Rejuvenates the condition of the breast while imploring a natural-looking appearance.

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.

What is involved in a breast reduction procedure?

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.

How long doe the breast reduction take?

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.

What happens after breast reduction surgery?

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:

Inverted T pattern

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.

Vertical Incision

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.

What are the options for breast reduction incision?

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.

How is initial consultation like for breast reduction?

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:

  • A patient may experience skin irritation or infection, especially at the incision site;
  • Changes to nipple sensation including numbing or loss of sensation;
  • Potential disruption of nipple functions that may impede breastfeeding;
  • Breast asymmetry or uneven nipples;
  • Scars or skin markings, dimples or inverted nipples;
  • Allergic reaction to anaesthesia;
  • Circulatory risks and bleeding;
  • Seroma or fluid build-up in the treatment area;
  • Blood clotting;
  • Poor wound healing resulting in keloid or surgical scars; and
  • Breast contour and shape irregularities.

In case, any of these adverse effects may occur, please call your trusted surgeons in Melbourne immediately.

What are the risks and complications of breast reduction plastic surgery?

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.

Why do I feel pain in my shoulders because of my breasts?

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.

Do you offer a breast reduction guide?

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.

Breast reduction procedures are performed by a qualified health practitioner such as a specialist plastic surgeon with years of experience and expertise in breast surgery.
