Some women have breast that is proportionately big compared to their physique. This big breast size may result in symptoms such as shoulder pain and back pain. In addition, shopping for clothes and dressing-up may be a challenge.
Breast reduction removes some tissue and skin from the breasts to reshape and reduce the size of the breast.
There are several surgical approaches to breast reduction, but at ‘Soul Place Surgery’, we mostly perform the SPAIR mammoplasty, which gives a compact and well contoured, reduced breast.
This procedure is performed under general anaesthesia, sometimes drains are used and usually removed about 48 hours after surgery. This procedure generally results in relieve of symptoms (shoulder and back pain) and therefore, a very rewarding undertaking that is worth the while.
