If you feel that your breasts are overly large, are not in proportion to the rest of your body or are causing you pain & discomfort, you may want to consider breast reduction surgery.
There are many factors that can affect the size of women’s breasts, such as:
Also known as a mammoplasty, breast reduction surgery is an operation that removes the excess weight and volume of the breasts. The breasts are then reshaped and the nipples repositioned to form newer and smaller breasts.
Having breast reduction surgery has many benefits:
There are several different surgical designs to reshape the breasts. All of them will involve a scar around the areola of the breast. Each method uses different techniques, which result in different scars – each will have advantages and disadvantages. Your surgeon will discuss this with you in detail and, with your approval, will select the best technique for your particular case.

Each patient is unique - different expectations and as such different requirements. We don't apply a "one size fits all" approach to cosmetic surgery, and as such the price of the surgery will depend on the exact requirements of your individual procedure. We have included an expected price range below, but really - we'd love to meet with you first to gain a better understanding of what you are looking for and what we can do to help you achieve the desired outcome.
