Breast Reduction (Reduction Mammaplasty)

Breast reduction surgery not only reduces discomfort, back pain and other physical symptoms related to having uncomfortably large breasts, but further impacts tremendously on a patient’s lifestyle and psychological wellbeing.  The patient feels more confident, has less “heaviness”, and is able to exercise and wear better fitting clothes.

During consultation patient concerns are discussed in detail after a full assessment.
