Why consider breast surgery?

Women are primarily motivated to choose breast surgery for their own personal satisfaction and body image. Women should never elect to have breast surgery for someone else; it should always be for themselves.

Breast surgery is chosen by women of all different age groups and backgrounds for a variety of different reasons.

Generally, they want to enhance their appearance by enlarging, lifting or reducing their breast size to be more in proportion with the rest of their body. Breast reduction surgery is also considered to reduce the strain of heavy breasts on the neck and shoulders.

Psychological benefits

Breast surgery has many psychological and emotional benefits, including enhanced self-esteem, a happier body image, increased confidence and an improved overall well-being.

Types of breast surgeries

Find out more about the types of breast surgeries performed by Dr Hertess.

Breast augmentation

Breast augmentation is commonly referred to as breast implants or breast enlargement.

The general goal of a patient considering augmentation is to boost the size of their breasts and also improve the contour, resulting in a sculpted, shapely bust line.

Breast reduction

Large, heavy breasts can lead to back, neck and shoulder pain. Oversized breasts can also make a woman feel out of proportion.

Breast reduction surgery makes the breasts smaller, lighter, and more proportionate to the body.

Breast lift

Breast lift surgery repositions drooping breasts so they sit higher on the body.

A lift does not necessarily change the size or shape of the breasts, but can be performed in conjunction with breast implant or reduction surgery.

Breast reconstruction

The purpose of breast reconstruction surgery is to make the breasts symmetrical following a disfiguring disease, such as breast loss after breast cancer.

Our expert team is ready to confidentially chat with you about breast reconstruction surgery.

Breast Implant Revision

Also known as breast implant removal and replacement, revisional surgery is chosen for a number of reasons, including the desire to remove implants, to replace implants that have reached their lifespan, or to change the size of the breasts.

Nipple and areolar correction

This type of procedure is designed to correct inverted or retracted nipples, which can impact breastfeeding as well as a woman’s self-esteem.

No two cases are alike, so we encourage you to organise an assessment that will help us determine the right treatment.


Gynaecomastia, often referred to as “man boobs”, is an excessive enlargement in one or both male breasts. This tissue is glandular and caused by a hormone imbalance or weight gain.

Cairns Plastic Surgery offers gynaecomastia surgery that removes excess breast tissue, reduces breast size, and enhances contour. It is not a substitute for weight loss.

Typical candidates include men who have lost excessive weight, but for the most part, is suitable for healthy men of all ages.

Benefits include improved self-esteem, body perception, and intimacy. To find out more, please get in touch.
