What exactly is

Breast Reduction?

Reduction Mammoplasty, commonly known as breast reduction, is a surgical procedure to remove excess fat, skin, and other breast tissue around the breasts to make it proportionate to the patient’s body.

The reason for this is called macromastia, a condition where breasts become overly enlarged that exceeds normal body proportions.

Kinds of Breast Reduction Surgery Approach
Vertical Breast Reduction:  At Breast Reduction Melbourne, incisions are found around the edge of the dark pigmented part of the nipple, called areola, and a vertical one from the bottom of the areola to the breast fold or underboob. This approach is more commonly known as the ‘Lollipop’ approach, because of the shape of the incisions.

Inverted T Breast Reduction:  Also called the ‘Anchor’ approach because the incisions for this approach resemble that of an anchor. Incisions are made along the edge of the areola, from the bottom of the areola down to the breast fold, and along the crease of the breast fold or underboob.

Liposuction:  Some Melbourne patients who need minimal reduction on the size of their breasts sometimes turn to liposuction to facilitate breast reduction. It is less invasive and needs shorter recovery time.

Contact our Breast Reduction Melbourne clinic and know more details about these breast reduction approaches.

Preparation for the procedure
At Breast Reduction Melbourne, clear understanding if the procedure and the dos and don’ts advised by your surgeon are keys to fully prepare for the surgery. Medical tests, such as mammograms, breast exams, and blood works may be required by your doctor to check your overall health and if there are any pre-existing medical conditions that would affect the whole procedure.

Medicines that you are currently taking should be reported to your surgeon to be sure that none of them may affect the surgery. Your doctor may adjust your dosage or may ask you to stop taking these medications if it would impede your breast reduction surgery.

If you are smoking, you will be strongly advised to stop before, during, and after the whole surgery process. The chemicals found in cigarettes and other smoking products slow down the body’s healing process that may cause a greater risk for infection.

Your Breast Reduction Melbourne plastic surgeon will examine and measure your breasts, its size, shape, and placement of nipple and areola, and other important points that would be needed for the surgery including your skin quality.

Pictures of your breasts will be taken and will be part of your medical record.

Your Breast Reduction Melbourne plastic surgeon will then discuss options you may take to address your problem. They may also recommend a treatment course that would be most suitable for your condition. The risks, potential complications, and the expected outcome of the surgery will also be discussed in full detail to ensure clear understanding before pushing through with the procedure.

What happens during the surgery?
Breast reduction surgery almost always requires general anaesthesia to be administered. At Breast Reduction Melbourne, it usually takes two to five hours for the whole breast reduction surgery to be done, sometimes longer.  Depending on the kind of breast reduction approach you and your Breast Reduction Melbourne surgeon have agreed upon, incisions will generally be made around the areola and toward the breast fold. Excess breast fat, tissue, and skin will be removed. Your nipples will be repositioned to suit your new breast size and shape. Stitches will be placed to close the incision site, drainage tubes will be attached to facilitate wound drainage, and bandage will be used to support your breasts. Sometimes, surgical compression bra can be utilized for added support and to help shape your breasts. Breast Reduction Melbourne will provide you with these if needed.
What to expect after the Procedure
Breast Reduction Melbourne patients usually stay in the hospital overnight; some may want to recover at home. Your plastic surgeon will recommend what he sees fit depending on how the surgery went.

Continue wearing the bandages and compression bra that were used around your breasts. The drainage tubes inserted to your breasts may be removed in a few days.

Pain, swelling, and bruising around your breasts are normal within a few days. These symptoms will be addressed with prescribed medications. Rest and a healthy diet also facilitate good healing and recovery time.

Follow up consultations with your Breast Reduction Melbourne plastic surgeon are essential to monitor how your surgery went. Any complications that could arise will easily be addressed with constant follow-up.

Return to work, daily activities, and exercise should all be approved by the Breast Reduction Melbourne surgeon. Special exercises and sometimes massages may be beneficial to you and will be prescribed by your doctor.
