Spotlight on Breast Reduction Surgery

Thursday, April 19, 2018

Breast reduction surgery is a popular procedure amongst women who visit Brighton Plastic Surgery.  A breast reduction is an effective treatment for large, heavy and sagging breasts. It removes excess breast tissue and skin to achieve a breast size more in proportion with your body.  A breast reduction will also alleviate common complaints associated with large breasts including shoulder, neck or back pain, breast crease irritation and difficulty in finding clothing that fits comfortably.  The procedure is designed to make the breasts smaller, more shapely and better supported.

For women who have breasts far out of proportion with their body size, a breast reduction can bring about life-changing results.

Excessively large breasts can be a physical and emotional burden for many women. The reasons for wanting breast reduction surgery do vary however if you are unhappy with your large breasts and experiencing any of the below you may be considered a suitable candidate for breast reduction surgery:

  • Breasts that are not in proportion to the rest of your body
  • Frequent neck, back or shoulder pain
  • Uncomfortable grooves in your shoulder from your bra (whereby the weight of your breasts result in your bra straps being pulled down)
  • Poor posture as a result of your breast size (many women with larger breasts tend to stoop/hunch their shoulders forward in an effort to minimise the perceived size of their breasts)
  • Heavy breasts that droop, with nipples and areolas that point downwards
  • Trouble sleeping due to discomfort when lying down
  • Rashes or infections under the breasts / in the crease line
  • Generally feeling self-conscious
  • Limited capacity for physical activity

Making the decision to undergo a breast reduction is a big step.  If you would like to learn more we recommend scheduling a consultation with a qualified Plastic Surgeon.  He or she will ask questions to learn more about you and your medical history, conduct a full examination and get a thorough understanding of your specific needs and expectations.  They will then be able to explain the various treatment options available and help you determine the best approach for your specific circumstances.

If you would like to find out more about breast reduction surgery at Brighton Plastic Surgery, including estimated cost for the procedure visit our Breast Reduction Web Page.  Alternatively feel free to schedule in an obligation free consultation via our website or by phoning us on 03 9592 0522.

As we continue to closely monitor and respond to the current COVID-19 situation, we’d like to advise of the following changes to our business operations as of 30th March 2020.

We remain open, however our surgeons are currently only seeing patients for skin cancers and trauma. As a result, our practice may operate on limited hours some days.

Wherever possible we have moved to telehealth for other appointments.   We are not able to undertake any wrinkle reduction or cosmetic treatments until further notice, we are however taking bookings for when it is safe to resume.

For urgent (trauma) cases arising after hours – we’ve added after hour surgeon contact details to our main office phone. If you call and our practice is closed, you’ll receive further instruction. Please note that contacting surgeons out of hours is only for urgent cases.

We thank you for your understanding and patience as we navigate these challenging times.

Please follow us on Facebook to stay abreast of any new developments as we’ll post timely updates there, and on our website. As always if you have any questions or concerns please call the practice on 03 9592 0522.

The team at Brighton Plastic Surgery would like to assure clients that we continue to closely monitor the unfolding COVID-19 situation and are implementing all necessary safety measures and closely following Health Department Guidelines.

Our practice continues to operate at this time however many changes are in place. Additional measures have been implemented to protect our patients and staff at this uncertain time. Some of these include:

  • Hand wash stations: you’ll find these at our entrance. All people entering our premises are required to thoroughly wash hands on arrival, and upon leaving.
  • Phone appointments – it is not always possible, however where we’re able we are now providing phone consultations, limiting the number of people passing through our practice whilst still providing important patient care and guidance.
  • Limited number of people in our practice at any given time– at this time only essential support people may attend a client’s appointment.  Please be mindful that as a support person you may be asked to wait in your car. If you are attending an appointment on your own, you may also be asked to wait in your car until we are ready for your appointment. The seating capacity in the reception area is deliberately very limited
  • Cashless payments – We’ve moved to cashless payments wherever possible.
If you are unwell you will not be able to attend the practice for your appointment. Please phone us and we will guide you in regard to your ongoing care.

If you have an upcoming appointment our staff will contact you to discuss how this will be managed for you.

We thank you for your understanding and patience as we navigate these challenging times.
