While any type of major surgery carries risks such as bleeding, infection and an adverse reaction to anesthesia, the potential complications specific to each surgery is covered in the following pages.

If you are a physically and psychologically healthy woman with realistic goals, then you may be an ideal candidate for breast cosmetic surgery. As with other forms of cosmetic surgery, you need to have a clear and realistic idea of why you want the surgery and what you hope to look like after it. It’s especially important to discuss these honestly with your surgeon.

Breast reduction, also known as reduction mammaplasty, is a procedure used to remove excess fat, tissue and skin from the breasts to make them smaller. If you have large breasts, you might choose to have breast reduction surgery to alleviate physical discomfort, such as shoulder and back pain, or to achieve a breast size proportionate to your body. Breast reduction might also help improve your self-image and self-confidence, as well as your ability to participate in physical activities. Men can also have breast reduction surgery to treat enlarged breasts, known as gynaecomastia.

The technique used in breast reduction surgery will depend on the size of your breasts and the desired result. Generally though, the surgeon makes an incision around the areola (coloured area surrounding the nipple) and down the breast. Excess breast tissue, fat and skin are removed from the breasts, which are then reshaped and the nipples repositioned.

After breast reduction surgery, your breasts will be covered with a gauze dressing or bandages. During the first two to six weeks after surgery, your breasts will probably feel tender and sensitive, and they might also be swollen and bruised. Be careful to avoid excessive force or movement while you're healing. Recovery time depends on your age and general fitness.

As your recovery progresses, be prepared for lingering pain in or around your breasts and numbness around your nipples. Some women also experience itchiness. Scarring is permanent but will usually fade over time.

Although results are immediate, keep in mind that it can take months for the swelling to completely subside and the surgical scars to fade. While the final result is permanent, breast size alters with body weight, so your breasts may increase in size if you put on weight or become pregnant even after surgery.
