Breast Reduction Surgery

Designed for more comfortable, symmetrical and proportionate breasts.
Breast reduction surgery can be considered by individuals experiencing physical discomfort such as back, neck, and shoulder pain.
It may assist in enhancing physical activity levels by potentially reducing movement restrictions and exercise discomfort.
Some individuals may find an improvement in clothing fit post-surgery, allowing for a potentially wider range of styles and sizes.
Breast reduction surgery aims to make your breasts more symmetrical and proportionate.

Before & Afters Breast Reduction Surgery

As with any surgery, scarring is a possibility. However, the scars from Vaser liposuction are usually small and they fade over time. Everyone’s different, so how noticeable they are can vary.

Breast Reduction Surgery At a Glance

Vaser liposuction breast reduction is a procedure that reduces breast size, usually by 1-2 cup sizes, but sometimes more in larger breasts. It’s a cosmetic surgery that involves taking out excess fat, breast tissue, and skin to make the breasts smaller and more proportionate and symmetrical to the body.
Average Procedure Time 2-3 hours
Anaesthetic Type General or local
Hospital Stay Day
TIME OFF WORK 6 months
Average RECOVERY 2-4 Weeks

Benefits

  • Physical Comfort: Individuals with overly large breasts often experience back, neck, and shoulder pain due to the extra weight. Reduction mammoplasty can relieve this strain, resulting in a more comfortable daily life.
  • Improved Physical Activity: Reducing breast size can also enhance physical activity levels. Large breasts might restrict movement or cause discomfort during exercise, making it challenging to maintain an active lifestyle. Post-surgery, many individuals find it easier and more comfortable to engage in a variety of physical activities.
  • Symmetry Correction: This procedure may address any asymmetry in breast size, ensuring a balanced and harmonious chest appearance.
  • Tailored Approach: A breast reduction is custom-designed to suit each individual’s unique breast situation, providing a personalised solution that caters to specific needs.

Potential Candidates

If you’re considering breast reduction surgery and wondering whether it’s the right choice for you, here are some key indicators that suggest you might be a suitable candidate:

  • Experiencing physical discomfort such as back, neck, or shoulder pain due to the weight of large breasts.
  • Your breast development has stabilised. In adolescents, this might require waiting until breast development has been completed.
  • Facing difficulties with physical activities or exercise because of breast size.
  • Struggling to find clothing that fits comfortably.
  • Suffering from skin irritation or rashes under the breast area.
  • In good overall health, with realistic expectations about the surgery outcomes.
  • Non-smokers, as smoking can complicate both the surgery and the recovery process.
  • You have a stable emotional outlook and understand the emotional aspects of undergoing a surgical procedure.
  • You’re aware of the potential risks and complications associated with the surgery and are prepared to follow post-operative instructions for recovery.
  • You’ve consulted with a qualified healthcare professional who specialises in breast reduction surgery.

Women with breasts primarily composed of fat, as opposed to glandular tissue, are typically the most suitable candidates for Vaser liposuction breast reduction. During your consultation, our doctors will assess the composition of your breasts to determine if this procedure is right for you.

Generally, women over 35 have a higher proportion of fatty tissue in their breasts, making them ideal candidates. However, we’ve also successfully performed this surgery on women under 35. Your suitability for the procedure can be thoroughly discussed during your consultation.

What to Expect From Breast Reduction Surgery

Consultation

This initial meeting with your doctor is crucial to discuss your medical history, current health status, and specific goals for the breast reduction surgery. The doctor will assess your suitability for the procedure and explain it in detail. This is the perfect time to ask questions and express any concerns you might have.

Pre-Op

Before your surgery, you’ll undergo various medical tests and evaluations to ensure you’re ready for the procedure. You’ll receive comprehensive pre-operative instructions, which may include fasting guidelines, adjustments to current medications, and advice on what to wear on the day of the surgery. Following these instructions is essential for a smooth and successful surgery.

The Procedure

On the day of your breast reduction surgery, you’ll receive anaesthesia or sedation as recommended by your doctor. The procedure typically involves making incisions, often around the areola or under the breast, to remove excess fat, breast tissue, and skin. The doctor will then reshape the remaining tissue to achieve a smaller, more proportionate breast size.

The duration of the surgery can vary but generally lasts between 2 to 4 hours. After the surgery, you will be briefed on the recovery process and what to expect in the ensuing weeks, including care for incisions, pain management, and activity restrictions.

Aftercare & Recovery

After your procedure, you’ll receive comprehensive post-operative advice for a smooth transition home.

Getting Home

We recommend arranging for a friend or family member to drive you, as you won’t be in a condition to drive yourself. Typically, you’ll be ready to leave the hospital on the day of your surgery.

After-Care

  • Your post-surgery care will be directly overseen by your doctor, supported by our dedicated team.
  • We provide a 24/7 contact number for any post-surgery questions, ensuring you can always reach us.
  • Unlike other clinics, we ensure your follow-up care is with your doctor, not just nursing staff.

Recovery Timeline

Immediate Post Procedure

You’ll be released into the care of a family member or friend.

An overnight hospital stay is unlikely – but you’ll be guided by your doctor.

Once home, you must rest and take it easy.

First Two Weeks

Expect some soreness and tenderness, but we’ll provide pain relief to minimise discomfort.

You can expect to be back to work around the 1-2 week mark, but this may vary from patient to patient.

Do not sleep on your stomach or side. The most comfortable and ideal position to sleep in is lying on your back.

You may resume sexual intercourse at around 10-14 days.

Two Weeks & Beyond

Follow-up appointment with your doctor, scheduled at the two-week mark.

You’ll need to continue wearing your compression garment for 3-6 weeks (except while showering).

You can begin exercising at around 4-5 weeks.

Recovery occurs around the 4 week mark, with full results evident in 6-12 months.

How Much Does Breast Reduction Surgery Cost?

Understanding the cost is crucial when considering breast reduction surgery. The total expense varies, as there’s no standard price for this procedure. The cost is generally divided into:

  • Hospital Fees: Covering the operating room and recovery period post-anaesthesia.
  • Anaesthetist’s Fees: Depending on their experience and qualifications.
  • Doctor’s Fees: Based on the doctor’s expertise and the complexity of your case.

For a precise estimate, we recommend scheduling a consultation with our doctors.

At our clinic, breast reduction surgeries start from $5,500, but the final cost depends on the factors mentioned above.
Additional areas are charged at a smaller rate starting from around $2,000.
An "area" can refer to the lower abdomen, upper abdomen, both hips, or both upper inner thighs, for example.
Prices are a guide only and will vary from patient to patient. Book in for a consult for a personalised quote.
Why You Shouldn’t Choose the Cheapest Option

It’s tempting to choose the cheapest breast reduction quote you receive, but here are some crucial reasons why this is never a good option:

  • Cheaper surgeries might mean lower-quality care, risking both safety and results.
  • Lower prices could indicate a lack of essential safety measures, heightening complication risks.
  • Inexperience in doctors could lead to unsatisfactory outcomes and additional costs.
  • Initial savings could be negated by post-operative care or unexpected issues.
  • Choosing experienced, reputable care ensures better long-term outcomes and safety.

Other Areas Vaser Liposuction Targets

Vaser liposuction is a versatile procedure that can be performed on various parts of the body to reduce excess fat. The most commonly treated areas include:

  • Tummy/Abdomen: Often chosen for removing stubborn belly fat.
  • Back: Targets excess fat deposits along the upper and lower back.
  • Arms: Ideal for shaping the upper arms and reducing ‘bingo wings’.
  • Hips: Helps in contouring the hip area and reducing the appearance of ‘love handles’.
  • Thighs: Effective for both the inner and outer thighs, enhancing leg shape.
  • Buttocks: Used to reshape and reduce excess fat (or add fat to the area for more rounded buttocks).
  • Neck & Chin: Perfect for eliminating a double chin and refining the neckline.
  • Male Breasts: Gynecomastia surgery can help reduce breast size in males.
  • Calf/Ankles: Calf liposuction is designed to reshape the lower legs, aiming to provide a more balanced leg contour.

Each of these areas can be effectively targeted with Vaser liposuction, offering significant changes in body contour and shape.
