Breast Surgery

Breast Augmentation

Breast enlargement (augmentation) is a frequently performed procedure to correct hypoplasia (under-development of breasts) or ptosis (droopy breasts).

Breast Reduction (Reduction Mammoplasty)

Women who have large breasts are often physically uncomfortable due to neck ache and backache or when the straps of the brassiere cut into the shoulders. They often sweat excessively in the crease underneath the breast resulting in irritation of the skin in the area. They find it difficult to buy comfortable brassieres off-the-shelf and often have to go to specialist shops which are expensive. They are embarrassed because they feel a large bust attracts unwelcome attention (’ men speak to my breasts and not to me’) and they are self-conscious both in the workplace and while participating in leisure activities. They do not like to participate in exercise or aerobics due to discomfort while exercising and often do not like to take their children swimming due to embarrassment. They also find it difficult to find clothes that fit their overall frame due to the disproportionately large bust.

Breast Uplift (Mastopexy)

The female breast undergoes enlargement during pregnancy and lactation and due to weight gain. It subsequently undergoes involution once breast-feeding stops or weight loss occurs. As a result of this the breast decreases in size, the skin becomes lax, stretch marks appear and the breast becomes saggy in appearance. The upper part of the breast appears hollow due to loss of volume and appears unattractive.

Correction of Inverted Nipples

The nipples are connected to the underlying breast tissue by means of tiny tubes called ducts. Nipple inversion occurs when these ducts are too short and pull the nipple inwards. It is important for the entire breast to be examined carefully for nipple inversion that occurs over a short period of time as it can sometimes be a sign of an underlying cancer.

I was very embarrassed about being a size 36G - I am now a 36D and I have never felt happier. All the pains I once suffered have gone and shopping is such fun, especially purchasing swimwear & underwear.
