Breast Reduction Perth
What is Breast Reduction?
Also known as reduction mammaplasty, breast reduction surgery is a procedure that removes excess skin and breast tissue from the breasts. The goal of the procedure is to create a smaller breast size that you desire. Women with excessively large breasts often experience significant emotional and physical problems throughout their life. They are often unable or reluctant to participate in physical activities and suffer from back, neck and shoulder pains, resulting in poor posture and a lack of confidence. Breast reduction surgery is an effective solution for women that have been impacted by their breast size. The procedure is designed to reduce physical strain, emotional stress and discomfort often experienced as you develop overly large breasts. Additionally, a breast reduction can assist in how an individual feels about their appearance and improve self-esteem. At Glamour Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Lee will work with you to achieve the breast size of your dreams so that they no longer interfere with your daily lifestyle.

Breast Reduction Procedure & Recovery
Breast Reduction Perth
All breast reduction procedures at Glamour Cosmetic Surgery are performed in fully-accredited private hospitals in Perth under general anaesthesia. They typically take four to five hours to complete. Your surgery can be performed as a day procedure, so you can recover at home. During your procedure, incisions are made from the nipple’s new location to the breast crease and along the breast crease. Excess skin, fat and glandular tissue is removed to reduce the size and weight of the breast. The nipple is then relocated to the desired position and the breast carefully recontoured to create a smaller but natural shape. After surgery, dressings are applied to the incisions.
Following your surgery with Glamour Cosmetic Surgery, you will be required to wear a surgical bra to support the breasts and minimise swelling. Patients will expect some discomfort, sensitivity, numbness and bruising during recovery. These symptoms may persist for a few weeks but should subside with time. The surgical bra should be worn for a month. In general, our patients can return to work a week or two after the surgery.
