Breast Reduction

What is a Breast Reduction?

At Dr Implants our safe, custom-tailored breast reduction surgery offers the perfect solution, helping you bring more balance to your breasts and solve a variety of aesthetic and functional concerns. Breasts generally grow at their own pace but it is common for breasts to grow excessively, spurring them to lose their shape and become problematic for some women. Many women want breast reduction surgery to improve their breast shape and appearance.

Some women feel self-conscious about their large breast size and the unwanted attention it brings therefore, they want reductive surgery to feel better about themselves. However, others want to prevent daily inconveniences such as pains like back ache caused by excessive breast growth.

Excessive breast growth can lead to constant body pains and can cause several inconveniences in your everyday life. Our safe, custom-tailored breast reduction surgery offers the perfect solution, helping you bring more balance to your breasts, and solve a variety of aesthetic and functional concerns.

​The appropriate reduction ratio will be based on your height, weight, and body size before surgery. If both breasts are similar in size, a general reduction will be performed. However, if one breast is smaller and closer to a more natural size, only one breast will be reduced to give a balanced and equal look.

Purpose of Breast Reduction

Many women get a breast reduction for aesthetic purposes however, breast reduction can also be used to alleviate pain in the waist, back, neck, and shoulders caused by having overly large breasts.

Eligibility

The appropriate reduction ratio will be based on your height, weight, and body size before surgery. If both breasts are similar in size, a general reduction will be performed. However, if one breast is smaller and closer to more natural size, only one breast will be reduced. Anaesthetics are given to alleviate any pain.

Anyone who can receive general anaesthesia and who has no serious health concerns can receive breast reduction treatment. An overnight stay in the hospital for observation is usually required with breast reduction procedures. Drains will be removed the day after surgery, then you will be discharged.

Patients may suffer some bruising but this will usually fade within ten days, and swelling will take slightly longer, usually eight weeks, to fade away completely. After six months, your breasts will look completely natural. ​ Patients over the age of 20 with breasts that have completely grown, or with breasts that have not experienced any growth for at least six months can receive breast reduction treatments.
