Breast Reduction Surgery & What You Need To Know!

Let’s talk about Breast Reduction Surgery! Firstly, did you know Breast Reduction surgery includes a Breast Lift? Yes, that’s correct a Breast Reduction also includes a lifting procedure! 

What is a Breast Reduction? A Breast Reduction is a surgical procedure that removes excess fat, skin, and glandular tissue whilst also lifting the breasts to restore the natural cleavage lines. By reducing the breast size, generally, a more superior breast shape and a more proportioned body shape is achieved. A Breast Reduction can relieve many health issues, both physical and mental, including back and neck pain, discomfort when wearing particular clothing, and self-confidence issues. Post surgery, many CosMediTour clients have reported that their ability to exercise becomes easier, their everyday tasks become more enjoyable and their discomfort and self-esteem are drastically improved.

Why I have been recommended a Breast Reduction with Augmentation? Breast Reduction surgery can be performed in conjunction with a Breast Augmentation to create fuller, higher, perkier breasts. Therefore, if you have a larger breast size and you’re looking for perky upper pole fullness a Breast Reduction with Augmentation may be the best surgical procedure for you. This Breast Reduction procedure decreases the sagging lower pole (lower breast) glandular tissue, skin, and fat, whilst the Breast Augmentation procedure increases the upper pole (upper breast) fullness, for an optimal outcome.

Why can’t Surgeons decrease my breast size from a ‘G’ cup to a ‘B’ cup? Surgeons are limited to the amount of excess fat, skin and glandular tissue that they can remove when performing Breast Reduction surgery. CosMediTour Surgeons are conservative when performing Breast Reduction surgery as our client’s safety is the number one priority. Generally, our Surgeons can reduce your breast size between 2-3 cup sizes. It’s vital to understand that if too much skin, fat and glandular tissue is removed, decreased blood flow may occur, resulting in loss of blood supply to the nipple contributing to a higher risk of necrosis. 

When is the best time to have a Breast Reduction? CosMediTour Surgeons generally recommend waiting until the breasts have fully developed, though rare, breast tissue may grow back post Breast Reduction surgery. Read more about Breast Reduction surgery here
