Breast Reduction Mammoplasty Before and After Photos
Women who have overly large breasts often experience problems such as back and neck pain, skin irritation, and dissatisfaction. A breast reduction mammoplasty is designed to alleviate this discomfort by reducing the size of the breasts. If you are looking to reduce the volume and weight of your breasts, take the time to look at our breast reduction mammoplasty before and after photos to see if Dr Norris’ work appeals to you.
The outcomes shown are only relevant for this patient and do not necessarily reflect the results other patients may experience, as results may vary due to many factors including the individual’s genetics, diet and exercise.
The breast reduction mammoplasty procedure
A breast reduction mammoplasty 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 mammoplasty
At Form and Face clinic in Sydney, the first step to determining whether you are a candidate for breast reduction mammoplasty is to have a consultation with Dr Norris. You are a potential candidate 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 mammoplasty
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 mammoplasty, however most patients are able to return to all normal activities, with the exception of strenuous exercise, within two weeks.
