Many Australian women suffer from incredible back and shoulder pain from excessively large breasts. Having large breasts affects a woman’s ability to be active as well as choose supportive garments and attractive clothing. Unbeknownst to many, men can also receive a specialised male breast reduction to correct gynecomastia.
Breast reduction surgery can significantly improve the quality of life for large-breasted women, affecting how they feel about themselves as well as alleviating their physical difficulties. Choosing to have breast reduction surgery can not only alleviate serious back, neck and shoulder pain but also contribute to renewed self-esteem and energy for life.
The aim in breast reduction surgery is to lift and reshape the breast and nipples, as well as reducing overall volume. Excess breast tissue and skin is removed, if necessary, liposuction may also be used to reshape the areas around the breast. The breast areola and nipple are then lifted to a higher, more attractive and youthful position.
The traditional T-Incision Technique does produce excellent, long-lasting results in breast reduction surgery, although is used less frequently due to the size of the scar it leaves. Dr Laniewski uses a refined non-vertical scar technique that minimizes scarring. Results are discreet and aesthetically pleasing. As long as normal weight is maintained the result will be excellent for many years to come.
Breast reduction surgery in Sydney differs from some other types of breast surgery as it tends to be carried out to correct medical concerns such as backache, rather than purely aesthetic reasons. Therefore it can be performed in women of any age once breast maturity has been reached
Breast reduction surgery involves a highly skilled technique, and is undertaken only by a highly trained specialist in plastic surgery.
