Breast Reduction is a surgical procedure that removes breast fat, tissue and skin to ease discomfort or to achieve a breast size proportionate to the body.
What does it do?
- Better proportioned breasts
- Reduce chronic pain and discomfort
- Improve breast asymmetry
- Reduce sagging breasts
- Reposition or resize nipple/areola if required
- Improve self-confidence
How it works
How does Breast Reduction work?
Once the incision is made, the excess skin is removed. Next, appropriate amounts of underlying fat and glandular tissue are removed and sculpted to reduce size and lift the breast. The remaining glandular tissue is brought together and sutured internally to maintain breast shape and support the breast during healing.
The nipple and areola which remain attached to their original blood and nerve supply are raised to their new position. The skin beneath the areola is then brought together and closed with sutures to reshape the new smaller breast.

About breast reduction
What condition it treats
For women who have oversized breasts, quality of life can sometimes be significantly decreased. Constant back or shoulder pain, irritating rashes, or just feeling uncomfortable in their own skin are common with oversized breasts. Breast reduction can help surgically remove extra fat, tissue, and skin from the breast to reduce breast size.
