Deciding to undergo a breast reduction procedure is a significant step for any woman. Some women find that very large and heavy breasts cause them pain and physical difficulty while some have confidence issues, and others find their breasts restricting or limiting for sports and other activities they wish to do.
The Me Clinc is a preferred destination for breast reduction in Melbourne and Sydney. Our breast surgery team has performed thousands of breast reduction surgeries in Australia and globally. With over 30 years cosmetic surgery experience in Australia we are highly experienced in Breast Reduction Surgery.
We perform two methods of Breast Reduction Surgery:
We were one of the first clinics in Australia in the 1980's to reduce Breast size by using Liposuction. With our experience generally a Breast Reduction procedure with Liposuction may reduce breast size by up to 50 percent in some patients. It is a relatively simple procedure that gives excellent results for the right patient.
The Tumescent Liposuction technique we use involves making one or two tiny incisions and removing fat cells in the same way as liposuction is performed on other areas of the body. The incisions are small and heal with virtually no scarring.
Breast Reduction with Liposuction offers many advantages over traditional, more invasive Breast Reduction Surgery. Apart from minimal scarring, it also allows for a greater degree of control over where fat cells are removed from, ensuring a natural looking result. Importantly it does not interfere with a woman's ability to breastfeed.
A Breast Reduction with Liposuction can also be combined with our Scarless Breast Lift procedure to ensure the best possible results.
This involves making incisions on the skin, tissue and breast glands and removing any excess fat, skin and tissue. This procedure can be combined with a Mastopexy to also lift and shape the breast. Traditional Breast Reduction Surgery is effective in providing a sizeable reduction in breast size, and with a Mastopexy also a breast lift.
Whilst the surgery allows a greater reduction in breast size, it can leave some degree of scarring on the area and lower breast. It may also interfere with breast feeding.
There is not one Breast Reduction Surgery method that is suited to all patients. The method used will depend on individual needs and breast tissue. A consultation with one our Surgeons is essential to determine the most appropriate and effective procedure for you. Both types of Breast Reduction may be eligible for a proportional Medicare rebate.
After your procedure you may feel drowsy from the anaesthetic. It is important to have someone drive you home and stay overnight. On this evening we recommend you rest. You can expect a small amount of swelling, which will gradually settle but you should be able to see some results almost immediately.
You are provided with the an after hours direct number in the event you may have any questions or concerns you wish to speak to us about. The next day or within a few days you must come back to the Clinic for your first post-operative check, then weekly for six weeks, then monthly for six months.
We recommend avoiding strenuous activity for around 3 weeks, but from 6 weeks or so you will be able to return to any exercise routines you had before. Most patients find that it only takes a matter of weeks for their new breasts to feel "natural", although with a reduction in size and weight.
Our Surgeons and Nurses will continue to monitor your recovery through a number of post-operative check-ups and are available at any time if you have questions or concerns.
As every patient we see has different requirements, it is difficult to provide standardised pricing as each procedure is tailored for each individual patient's situation A no obligation consultation with one of our Surgeons is essential in determining what you require and which procedure would be best suited for you.
Our philosophy is simple. We want you to be fully informed, and we want you to understand all your options and have one accurate price quoted once. Consultation fees may apply.
There is no need for you to obtain a referral from your own doctor to see one of our Surgeons. Generally we are able to book you in to see one of our Surgeons in 7 to 14 days.
