The aim of this surgery is to produce an aesthetically pleasing breast both in terms of shape and size, while leaving minimal scars in inconspicuous positions which can be easily hidden when wearing a bra or bikini. Breast Reduction is performed under general anesthesia. Mr Cadier will discuss all of the options available to you at your consultation. A hospital stay will be required of between 2- 4 days. Most women can return to work after two weeks but it may be up to four weeks before you can recommence all normal activities.

Women who have breasts that are too large for their frame may suffer neck, shoulder and back pain, rashes under their breasts and grooves in their shoulders from bra straps. Furthermore, they may have trouble exercising, have difficulty finding clothing and bras that fit and feel self-conscious about their appearance.

Breast Reduction surgery aims to not only reduce breast size but also to uplift the breast. At the same time the nipple is elevated to a more ideal position and when required the areolae are reduced in size.
