Breast Reduction, also known as mammoplasty, is a procedure that will reduce the size and weight of a woman’s breasts.
An extra large bust size can cause real discomfort, with back and shoulder pain being very common side-effects. Large breasts can also be embarrassing, distressing and cause confidence issues, as well as making clothing choices difficult at times, therefore this procedure not only results in patients feeling a lot better physically, but also emotionally.

The Breast Reduction operation involves removal of excess breast and skin tissue to reduce the overall size of the breast and also reshaping of the breast itself and repositioning of the nipple to create a higher bustline.
This diagram shows the position of the scar after the operation. The breasts are smaller and the nipples are higher.
