If you are someone who has larger than normal breasts, sagging breasts or simply are not happy with the shape or size of your breasts, you will know that there are both physical and emotional consequences to this issue. Some people can suffer with back ache, poor posture, trouble exercising and ill-fitting clothing, as well as a lack of self-confidence and even embarrassment, when they are subjected to lingering looks and in some cases, inappropriate comments.

Any specific technique used to reduce the size of your breasts will depend on your individual anatomy and requirements. The procedure can include surgery through incision techniques to remove breast tissue and tighten skin, as well as liposuction to remove excess fat. In many cases, Mr Netri will usually make an incision around the areola and down each breast. He will then remove excess breast tissue, fat and skin to reduce the size of each breast and then re-shape the breast and reposition the nipple and areola. The nipples and areola will usually remain attached to the breasts, unless your breasts are particularly large, in which case they may need to be removed and then attached at a higher position as a skin graft. Mr Netri will use his many years of expertise and unsurpassed skills as a breast surgeon, to achieve symmetry between your breasts. However, it’s important to consider that some variation in breast size and shape can occur in some cases. The size of the areola may also be reduced. Any incision scars will fade over time but will never completely disappear.
Immediately after surgery, your breasts will be dressed with a gauze or bandages and a tube may be positioned under each arm to drain any excess blood or fluid. You will be given appropriate medication such as pain relief and antibiotics to ensure that you are comfortable and that any risk of infection is minimised.
For the first few days to a week after surgery your breasts will most likely feel tender and sensitive and may be slightly bruised and swollen. Mr Netri may ask that you wear an elastic compression bra to protect your breasts and to help with the swelling.
In the weeks that follow your breast reduction surgery, you will need to limit physical activity while your breasts heal. Mr Netri may also recommend that you avoid wearing bras that contain underwiring for several months, following your procedure. You will need to return to the clinic so that your nurse can remove any stitches and follow up with you on your recovery, as well as to ensure that you are happy with your results.
As breast reduction surgery involves removing fat, breast tissue and excess skin, your breasts will become smaller and ‘perkier’, so if you have sagging or drooping breasts you will be pleased to know that breast reduction surgery can offer an effective solution to this issue, along with the physical symptoms that drooping breasts can present.
As with any surgical procedure, there are always going to be some risks with a breast reduction. However, as Mr Netri is one of the country’s most eminent and respected surgeons with decades of experience in this field, these risks are extremely unlikely. Any such risks or side-effects associated with breast reduction surgery will be explained to you in your initial consultation/s with Mr Netri and negating these risks by effectively checking your medical history and status is standard practice here at our clinics.
Potential risks include:
Certain lifestyle choices such as smoking, excessive exercise, if you have had children or had any illnesses can affect the breast reduction surgery in various ways. Your breasts are as unique as you are, and it is not realistic to compare your results to any of your friends, colleagues or celebrities in the media. It’s important to remember than any before and after images that Mr Netri shows you in your consultation are an indication of the kind of work he can achieve and your results can be significantly different from any images you are shown.
