Breast Reduction Before and After

Women who have overly large breasts often experience a number of health and emotional problems, such as back and neck pain, skin irritation and self-consciousness. A breast reduction is designed to alleviate this discomfort and restore balance to the figure. If you are looking to reduce the volume and weight of your breasts, take the time to look at our breast reduction before and after photos to see if Dr Norris’ work appeals to you.

The breast reduction procedure

A breast reduction takes two to three hours to complete and is performed under general anaesthesia. After Dr Norris has made his incisions, he will remove excess skin, fat and tissue from the breasts and reposition the nipples. He will then close the incisions with sutures to reshape your new, smaller breasts. You will be able to enjoy the results immediately after the procedure.

Potential candidates for breast reduction

At Form and Face clinic in Sydney, the first step to determining whether you are a candidate for breast reduction is to have a consultation with Dr Norris. You are a potential candidate for breast reduction if:

  • You have overly large breasts that cause physical problems or interfere with daily activities
  • Your bra straps leave indents in your shoulders
  • The weight of your breasts disturbs sleep
  • The skin in the crease of your breasts is constantly irritated
  • Your breasts are pendulous, with the nipples pointing downwards
  • One breast has grown larger than the other
  • You are self-conscious about the appearance of your breasts
  • You struggle to find bras or clothing that fit your breasts
  • You are physically healthy
  • You have realistic expectations

What to expect after a breast reduction

Dr Norris will apply dressings to your incisions following your surgery. A small, thin tube may also be placed under the skin to drain any excess blood or fluid in the days following surgery. You will also need to wear a compression garment to help support your breasts as the heal.

You will need to take some time off work to rest following a breast reduction, however most patients are able to return to all normal activities, with the exception of strenuous exercise, within two weeks.
