Overly Large Breasts Overview

Individuals with overly large breasts may face a range of challenges that can significantly impact their quality of life. The additional weight of large breasts can lead to chronic pain in the neck, back, and shoulders.  Skin irritation beneath the breast and difficulties with physical activities are also common issues. Emotionally, the attention drawn by large breasts may result in discomfort, possibly affecting one’s mental well-being.

What Causes Large Breasts?

The size of someone’s breasts is determined by a combination of factors, including genetics, hormonal changes, body weight, and sometimes medications. For some, large breasts may develop during puberty, while for others, they may increase in size due to weight gain or pregnancy.

How to Make Boobs Smaller 

Breast reduction surgery, also known as reduction mammaplasty, is a procedure designed to remove excess fat, glandular tissue, and skin from the breasts.  The goal is to achieve a breast size that is proportionate to the body, alleviating the discomfort associated with overly large breasts and improving the individual’s ability to engage in physical activities.

About Breast Reduction Surgery

Breast reduction with Vaser liposuction 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. Recovery time varies, with most individuals able to return to work and light activities within 1-2 weeks. Full recovery and the final shape of the breasts may take several months.

Breast Reduction FAQs

What are the risks of breast reduction surgery?
Breast reduction surgery, like any surgical procedure, carries certain risks and potential side effects. These may include swelling, bruising, discomfort, and changes in skin sensitivity. There's also a risk of infection and uneven results. Discussing these potential outcomes with your doctor is crucial before proceeding.
How much fat can be safely removed during breast reduction?
In Australia, up to five litres of fat can be removed in a single liposuction session. If there's a need to remove more, additional procedures may be necessary. This is a topic to discuss in detail with your doctor during your consultation.
Will my skin sag after a breast reduction?
Post-surgery skin tightness varies by individual, largely dependent on your skin's elasticity before the operation. While the procedure aims to improve tightness, results differ from person to person. Those with naturally more elastic skin may see better-tightening outcomes.
Will there be scarring?
Scarring is an inevitable aspect of breast reduction surgery. However, the visibility of scars can diminish over time, and the extent to which they fade will vary among individuals. The techniques used aim to minimise scar visibility as much as possible.
Is the procedure painful?
During the surgery, you will not experience pain due to anaesthesia. Post-operative discomfort is normal but manageable with prescribed pain medication.
What is the recommended age for breast reduction?
The general recommendation is to wait until the age of 18, allowing for full breast development. However, exceptions may be made in cases where individuals experience significant discomfort or quality of life issues due to overly large breasts.
