Breast Reduction in Brisbane

Breast reduction surgery is an operation in which excessive breast tissue and the overlying skin are removed. It will reduce the size of your breasts while at the same time lifting your breasts and improving their shape. Breast reduction surgery can also help alleviate neck and upper back pain, and skin irritation, which is often associated with large, heavy breasts.

 



Any woman who feels her breasts are too large is suited to breast reduction surgery. Large breasts can result from excessive breast development or an increase in size later in life following pregnancy or around the time of menopause.

However, if you are contemplating pregnancy in the near future then it is best to delay your breast reduction surgery until you have had children.
