Information About Breast Reduction

Large breasts can be seen by many as a huge advantage, they are charming and a real confidence boost. Some women with large breasts suffer from severe back pain. This is why women look to cosmetic surgery to alleviate this type of pain and to improve their posture.

The surgery

The surgeon will outline what needs to be done at the consultation. Patients will get a good indication of the shape and size of their breasts after the surgery at this stage.

During the breast reduction surgery the surgeon will cut away extra skin and remove excess breast tissue. For patients getting implants, the surgeon will insert them and then close and bandage up the breasts. It may be necessary for the surgeon to put drain in the breasts.

Your surgeon will remove the bandages and any drains during your follow-up visit on the first or second day after your breast lift. The doctor will also check the nipple’s colour and blood supply.

The recovery

After the operation, patients should expect to be uncomfortable and swollen for a few weeks. The patient will need to pad their bras with wound dressing in order to keep the area clean.

The surgeon will outline all the necessary precautions for the patient to take during their recovery.

At a follow up visit with the surgeon within a few weeks, the stitches will be removed. In the months following the surgery the breasts will further adjust themselves. Patients should expect to be fully recovered within a few months.


Complications after breast lifts are relatively rare. As there is no foreign item inserted beneath the skin like in many other surgeries, the risk of infection is lessened. The main risks are excess bleeding during the surgery, infection, numbness and scarring. If patients have any questions or issues than they should contact their surgeon immediately.

The cost of breast reduction surgery may be joined into cost of a breast augmentation. The two surgeries can be performed together if necessary. Often breast reduction surgery is all that is necessary. At Refine cosmetic clinic Sydney we offer breast reduction surgery performed by highly skilled surgeons.
