Excessively large, sagging breasts that are out of proportion with the body can cause back and neck pain, tiredness, skin rashes, shoulder grooving, and make it difficult to find suitable clothing. Many women suffer from poor body image as a result, especially because their breasts are so difficult to hide, and feel they are lacking in self-esteem or self-confidence.
With the effective and safe procedures that are available today, a woman need not endure the physical and psychological problems associated with excessively large breasts. Dr Moss regularly performs breast reduction procedures, and he understands that some women find it difficult to discuss this particular problem, but he and his staff are very sympathetic to the correction of excessively large breasts and can offer much advice and support.
The procedure itself involves removing excess breast tissue and skin. The breasts are then reshaped, often with the reduction of the areola (the dark area surrounding the nipple). Unequally sized breasts can be made more even. Your requested breast size will be confirmed at your consultation.
Some scars are inevitable with this procedure. The incisions are made vertically down the breast from under the areola, and sometimes horizontally along the crease underneath the breast, forming the shape of an inverted ‘T’. These scars fade with time, and most patients are so pleased with the results of this particular type of surgery that the scars seem insignificant when compared to their improved lifestyle and confidence. Liposuction is often used to achieve refinement in the shape of the breasts. Patient satisfaction is very high.
