Also known as reduction mammaplasty, breast reduction surgery removes excess breast fat, glandular tissue and skin to achieve a breast size in proportion with your body and to alleviate the discomfort associated with overly large breasts.

Those who undergo breast reduction surgery frequently are seeking relief from physical symptoms. Individual factors and personal preferences including size determine specific technique and degree of the breast reduction.

Breast reduction surgery clients are more motivated to exercise and frequently lose weight as they are able to do so more comfortably. If desirable, this procedure can be performed in conjunction with liposuction surgery for a complete makeover.

Oversized, drooping breasts cause many women to seek breast reduction surgery or medically known as breast hypertrophy.

Physical symptoms:

  • Back, neck & shoulder pain>
  • Asymmetrical breasts
  • Skin irritation along bra strap lines or under breasts
  • Indentations in shoulders from pulling bra straps
  • Difficulty exercising or performing normal physical activities without pain
  • Breasts being too large and out of proportion to your body type.
  • Breasts that are pendulous & lack firmness
  • Nipples & areolas that point downward.

There are many variations to the design of a breast reduction surgery. The size and shape of your breasts, size of your areolas, and extent of sagging are factors that will help you and Dr Jervis determine which method is best.

Sometimes it’s possible to avoid the ‘T shaped’ incision. For some, a different technique may be used that avoids the typical scars. The areolas may be reduced in size.

Following breast reduction, your breasts will be more proportioned to the rest of your body. You should be more comfortable, including during exercise.
