Breast Reduction

Are you tired of the physical pain from supporting your large, heavy breasts?  Do you find it almost impossible to go bra and clothing shopping? Perhaps you find physical activities uncomfortable or even painful due to your breasts?  Do you find you accumulate sweat under your breasts?  Are you tired of unwanted attention and even harassment in social situations because of your large breasts?  A breast reduction may be your best option.


Do You Wish You Had More Natural Breasts?

While it is true that many women get surgery to achieve more shapely cleavage, there are equally as many women who desire to reduce the size of their breasts.  Larger breasts can cause many physical, social, and emotional problems.

You may find your breasts cause you physical pain and discomfort in the form of chafing, skin infections and rashes, and severe strain to your neck, back and shoulders.  Supporting larger breasts can also lead to permanent, unsightly deformations of the skin known as “bra strap grooves”.   Exercising – even yoga classes – can be uncomfortable, awkward, or downright painful and impossible.

In social situations, you might find that your breasts attract unwanted attention and even harassment.  Crass and insensitive remarks, and even sexual harassment, can lead to embarrassment, confidence issues, social anxiety, and even a reluctance to socialise entirely.

  • Your existing breast tissue
  • The size and weight of your breasts
  • Position of the breast and nipple
  • The health and elasticity of your breasts
  • Your underlying chest muscles
  • The breast size you would prefer
  • Your preferred nipple size, appearance, and location

Breast Reduction Surgery Scarring?

It is important to remember that all surgery involves scarring and Breast Reduction surgery is no different. Your ultimate level of scarring will depend on several factors, including the kind of incision used.

Dr. Robert Drielsma specialises in the use of the Lollipop incision technique that aims to give you the best, natural result significantly reducing scarring for a superior cosmetic result.  Scars soften and fade to being over 12-18 months after surgery resulting in very acceptable results you will be satisfied with.

Breast Reduction FAQ

What Downtime is There for Breast Reduction Surgery?

Breast Reduction surgery is performed by Dr. Drielsma in a hospital under a general anaesthetic. The operation takes around three hours, though this can change depending on each patient. It is recommended you spend at least one night in hospital following your surgery. You will require 2 weeks away from work and 6 weeks before you can return to normal exercise.

When will I see Results?

You will see and feel immediate results.  Swelling from your procedure can take up to 6-12 months to fully subside and for your breasts to settle into their final size and shape.

Can Breast Reductions Grow Back?

Due to weight and/or hormonal changes, breast tissue can sometimes grow back, however this is not a common issue. In these unusual cases you may need a secondary breast reduction procedure.

Will I be able to Breast Feed?

In some cases it is possible that your Breast Reduction surgery may affect your ability to breast feed. This is due to the removal of breast tissue. It is important to discuss any future plans to breast feed with Dr. Drielsma during your consultation.

What is the Cost of Breast Reduction?

The cost of Breast Reduction surgery varies from surgeon to surgeon. Always do your homework to avoid dangerously underpriced surgery or ridiculously overpriced surgery. You should be happy with the quality of service and experience you are being offered for the price of your surgery. Be wary of the pitfalls of cheap cosmetic surgery, especially surgery performed overseas. This is your body and you should never settle for cheap, nasty or second-best. Dr. Drielsma is also competitively priced and offers excellent value based on his superior reputation and results.

What Should I Bring to My Consultations?

We also recommend you bring a friend or relative with you to help discuss the information provided and your choices. Simple clothing is also recommended as you may need to undress for a physical exam. Finally, we also recommend that you bring a notepad and that you thoroughly read all documents provided to you by Dr. Drielsma so that you make the best, most informed decision.

Are There Risks?

As with any surgical procedure, there is a small risk of complications when it comes to Breast Reduction surgery.  These complications are rare but can involve bleeding and infection infection.  There are also consequences from surgery that are expected but acceptable, e.g. scarring and sensation changes.  All aspects of things to expect and possible complications will be explained in detail during your consultation. Breast Reduction requires a general anaesthetic and your anaesthetist will discuss the possible discomforts and any complications that may occur. Although every attempt is made to obtain symmetry and natural breast shape, as with all women and all natural breasts, there may be some difference in the final size and shape of your breasts, and areola and nipple position.
