Breast Reduction Surgery

When most people think of breast surgery, they consider breast augmentation with implants.  While large breasts are considered beautiful in our society, they can also be a burden for some women.  Many people are unaware that large breasts can cause significant emotional and physical suffering.  The good news is that Breast Reduction Surgery can alleviate many of the problems associated with large breasts.  Breast Reduction Surgery is a surgical procedure that decreases the size and reshapes the breast.  With a high satisfaction rate, this is a great option for women that experience discomfort and unhappiness from their breasts.

The Problem With Large Breasts

Having excessively large breasts can cause strain on parts of the body, causing many health-related issues such:

  • Neck ache
  • Backache
  • Headaches
  • Shoulder pain
  • Poor posture
  • Irritation or sores from bra straps
  • Discomfort when exercising
  • Rash under breasts
  • Sagging breasts

Besides physical symptoms, large breasts can also contribute to other issues such as low self-esteem, unwanted attention from men, social embarrassment, difficulty finding clothes that fit properly and physical inactivity.  Exercise for some women can be difficult and painful which can lead to obesity and poor overall health. Women with large breasts are more likely to have inverted nipples and may struggle to breastfeed their babies. All of these can have a direct impact on the psychological well being of women.  At Cairns Plastic Surgery, we believe that all women deserve to love their body and feel beautiful.  That’s why we have mastered the art of Breast Reduction Surgery!

The Benefit Of Surgery

Breast Reduction Surgery not only enhances the appearance of breasts, achieving a better shape that is more proportionate to your body but more importantly relieves the associated symptoms of having large breasts.  Past studies have shown that Breast Reduction Surgery can improve skeletal alignment, reducing or eliminating neck, shoulder and back pain and increase participation in sports and improve quality of life.  Additionally, Breast Reduction Surgery can improve your self-confidence and get you active and feeling fantastic again!   With smaller breasts that are proportionate to your body size, you can finally enjoy wearing the clothes, underwear and bathers that you have always wanted to without feeling self-conscious.

Breast Reduction Surgery is a safe procedure that involves removing excess fat, glandular tissue and skin from the breast.   It is performed under general anaesthetic and in most circumstances leaves minimal scarring.
