Breasts that are overly large and heavy can be corrected with breast reduction surgery at REAL Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery. Large breasts can sometimes lead to back pain and other discomfort, and breast reduction surgery can restore balance to your body shape.
Serving Melbourne and surrounding areas, our breast reduction surgeries are performed by Mr. Stephen Salerno. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and find out if you are a candidate for surgery.
What is Breast Reduction?
When the breasts carry extra fat and/or skin, they can become overly large and cause discomfort to the body during daily activities such as exercising and shopping. Overly large breasts can also potentially cause chronic lower back or shoulder pain or attract negative attention. At REAL Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery, our breast reduction procedures can correct breast size for increased comfort and aesthetic.
How Does Breast Reduction Work?
This procedure has developed into several different techniques depending on the level of correction and surgical preferences. There are various incision patterns possible to remove excess fat and skin from the breast area, and these options can be discussed during your consultation. Whether or not this procedure can be combined with other breast work can also be discussed in order to meet your goals.
What is Recovery Like?
The healing and recovery process can depend on the patient, but some mild bruising, swelling, and discomfort may be experienced. Mr. Salerno and our medical team can help you determine how much time to take off from work and when you should be able to resume normal activities. Once all swelling and bruising subsides, the full results of your breast reduction should be evident.
Am I a Good Candidate for This Procedure?
Patients who have overly large breasts and who experience chronic pain or self-consciousness as a result of their condition may be candidates for this procedure, but the best way to find out is to schedule a consultation at our Melbourne office. We will assess several factors such as your overall health, medical history, aesthetic goals, and more to help you determine whether breast reduction surgery is right for you. During that time you can also discuss your surgical options and all relevant safety information.
The results of a breast reduction are typically long-lasting for most patients. Contact REAL Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery today to schedule a consultation and find out more information about breast reduction surgery.
