Breast Reduction

Breast Reduction

Breast reduction is a procedure to remove excess fat, tissue and skin to achieve a breast size more in proportion with your body and reduce the discomfort associated with extremely large breasts.

You can have breast reduction at any age. But if your breasts aren’t fully developed, you might need a second surgery later.

Anaesthetic - General

Length of stay - 7 nights 

Length of operation - 2 hours

Return to normal life - 2 week

Dr Mak usually makes an incision around your areola and down each breast (anchor type). He removes excess breast tissue, fat and skin to reduce the size of each breast. He might need to remove the nipple and areola and then reattach at a higher position as a skin graft if your breasts are very large. You should postpone your breast reduction surgery if you have certain future plans such as; childbirth and weight loss.

Before your treatments you might also need to:

Stop smoking. Smoking decreases blood flow in the skin and can slow the healing process. If you smoke , Dr Mak will recommend that you stop smoking before surgery and during recovery.

Avoid certain medications. You will likely need to avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, blood tinners and herbal supplements, which can increase bleeding.

As you begin your journey toward considering plastic surgery and other cosmetic enhancements , my goal as your plastic surgeon is to provide you the highest quality of care throughout the entire process.
