Breast Reduction

Breast Reduction Surgery in Melbourne

breast reduction surgery, breast size and back pain - are they interlinked?

Breast Reduction Surgery or a ‘Boob Reduction’ is performed in Melbourne by Dr Geoffrey Barnett, Specialist Plastic Surgeon. Heavy, large breasts that weigh you down, cause neck or shoulder pain and impact your posture, can be a disabling condition for many women.  Both physical discomfort, and social anxiety that has become internalised, can affect the quality of life of a woman with proportionately large, heavy or sagging breasts.

Symptoms of having breasts that may benefit from a Breast Reduction Surgery (Breast Reduction Mammoplasty) may include:

  • breast pain
  • shoulder and neck pain
  • back pain
  • recurring skin infections below the breasts in the skin creases
  • harassment and embarrassment in social situations
  • fashion and clothing limitations
  • fear or reluctance to wear swimsuits in summer

Why women choose to have a Breast Reduction surgery (Plastic Surgery of the Breast) using the Le Jour Incision Method (lollipop) or Anchor Method

Many women who have large, heavy “overly-abundant” breast tissue are not happy or comfortable with having very large breasts or nipples.  The complaints listed above are commonly heard, and Dr Barnett has helped countless women have healthier, easier to carry and posture-friendly breast proportions through breast reduction surgery procedures (including liposuction for additional reshaping). Even the nipple size or shape can be adjusted during surgery, which can leave a more aesthetically pleasing, more centred and more typical nipple-size-to-breast-size ratio and body harmonisation.

Physique Balancing is possible through breast reduction surgery.

All the above complaints about “too big breasts” are significantly improved through breast reduction procedures.

At the time of your operation, your breast ‘contents’ along with the skin envelope holding your breast tissues are reshaped and tightened and uplifted, giving you a new, smaller and balanced breast shape that can also provide a more aesthetic appearance.

Many women report that they love being able to exercise more freely, wear more clothing options more confidently, and feel less self-conscious wearing swimsuits after having their breast reduction procedures.

Breast reduction techniques can vary from patient to patient, and if you have a preference, these can be discussed with Mr Geoff Barnett, a Specialist Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon with extensive breast surgery experience, prior to your surgery.

A well-informed consultation and discussion about your post-surgery size preferences (wanting to change to a C cup or even a B cup is not uncommon) – so that Mr Geoff Barnett can help you to achieve the best reduction surgery result for you in relation to your preferred sizes as well as your overall physique and breast skin.
