• Breast reduction

  • The procedure

    Your breasts are reduced by removing breast tissue from below and around your nipple. The nipple is raised to a higher position and the breast skin is then stitched leaving you with a scar around the areola (the coloured skin around the nipple), vertically down from the areola to the crease under the breast and often a horizontal scar underneath the breast along the breast crease (i.e. the scar is shaped like an inverted letter “T” or an anchor).

     

  • What does it involve?

    A breast reduction is performed under a general anaesthetic (with you asleep). 

    What are the benefits?

    Breast reduction techniques not only remove the weight and the volume (size) of the breasts, but also provide a breast lift.
