What is a Breast Reduction?

A Breast Reduction, also known as Reduction Mammoplasty, is a Plastic Surgery procedurethat involves removing excess fat and tissue from the breast. This process aims to reduce the size of large breasts, bringing them into better proportion with the rest of the body. While the results are often visually dramatic, most of our clients seek this procedure to address both physical and emotional concerns, including:

  • Physical pain, especially in the neck, shoulder, and back.
  • Skin irritations such as rashes, chafing, and infection.
  • Posture improvement and prevention of nerve damage.
  • Alleviation of social discomfort and anxiety.
  • Enhanced ability to engage in physical activities.

Motivations and symptoms vary from client to client, as does the timing of the procedure. Our highly experienced Plastic Surgeons assess each case individually, taking the time to understand your unique concerns.

Do I Need a Breast Reduction?

Wondering if a Breast Reduction is right for you? Contrary to popular belief, there’s no specific cup size that determines candidacy for the procedure. To help you evaluate your options, we’ve highlighted common concerns shared by our clients.

Do you encounter any of the following issues? If yes, consider the frequency, severity, and impact:

  • Back, neck, or shoulder pain
  • Bra marks on your shoulders
  • Skin irritations or inflammation under the breasts, including chafing or infections
  • Poor posture
  • Nipple sensitivity or numbness
  • Disrupted sleep due to discomfort
  • Self-consciousness or anxiety related to breast size
  • Difficulty exercising or participating in certain activities
  • Clothing fitting challenges

If these symptoms resonate with you, a Breast Reduction procedure might be worth considering. If you’re still unsure, CosMediTour provides a Free Online Assessment for you to complete in the comfort of your home.

BREAST REDUCTION AND BREASTFEEDING

We advise waiting until after you’ve completed breastfeeding before undergoing a Breast Reduction. 

Breast Reduction often involves adjusting nipple position or size, posing a higher risk of damage to milk ducts or nerves, potentially affecting breastfeeding. Additionally, pregnancy and breastfeeding may cause your breasts to change again, potentially impacting long-term results.

WHY CONSIDER A BREAST REDUCTION?

NECK, BACK AND SHOULDER PAIN

Chronic pain in the neck, back, and shoulders is a common challenge for women with larger breasts. The excess weight of breast fat and tissue strains these areas, causing discomfort.

To assess if your large breasts contribute to pain, check for bra strap marks on your shoulders—a telltale sign of constant strain. Tightening bras for added support may exacerbate personal discomfort.

 

SKIN IRRITATION, CHAFFING, AND RASHES

Frequent rashes, irritation patches, or infections beneath the breasts are common issues related to the constant rubbing and pressure of larger breasts. Increased chafing elevates the risk of skin damage and infection. Clients with overly large breasts frequently present with inflammation along the breast crease. Our Breast Reduction surgery in Australia addresses these concerns by lifting the breasts and eliminating chafing.

 

POSTURE AND NERVE DAMAGE

Longer term, the constant downwards pressure of larger breasts can change the way you stand and, in some cases, lead to posture-related back issues. In some cases, this may even cause nerve abnormalities in the body which can lead to nipple sensitivity and even numbness.
