The Brisbane Breast Reduction
The Brisbane Breast Reduction
A Brisbane breast reduction is a treatment that removes excess fat from the breasts and subsequently makes them lighter and smaller. By changing the size and shape of the breasts, the patient can also experience a reduction in physical complaints such as backaches and shoulder pains.
While voluminous breasts are associated with femininity, they can become problem when they are too heavy or large. It can cause rash underneath the breasts, but also cause additional physical discomfort. For patients who are encountering these kinds of problems because of enlarged breasts, the Brisbane breast reduction could prove useful.
Who Is Eligible For Brisbane Breast Reduction?
Both men and women are eligible for the procedure, although the male equivalent of the Brisbane breast reduction is gynaecomastia treatment; this is the procedure that will create a more masculine chest. For women, the Brisbane breast reduction will maintain the femininity of the breasts, but only reduce them in size and weight.
Naturally, this surgical procedure is also executed in women. Before the arrival of breast reduction through Brisbane liposuction, most women chose reduction mammoplasty, where we remove excess breast tissue and skin through excision. It is often obtained to reduce back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, and indentations from bra straps. The nipple and areola are usually repositioned as well during this cosmetic surgery.
Women can now find a solution for large breasts with breast reduction via liposuction. During this surgery, the surgeon only makes small nicks and removes fat to reduce breast size.
Most patients undergoing breast reduction experience an improvement of their physical discomfort shortly after the procedure; this could entail a reduction in neck and shoulder pain, less headaches, and more. Therefore, breast reduction through liposuction is certainly a procedure that could help women with heavy breasts.
There are other procedures that could change the shape and size of the breasts. The breast reduction is a procedure that reduces the size, while a procedure with breast implants will increase their size. If you want to increase the size of the breasts, we advise you to read the dedicated pages on breast augmentation.
How Is Brisbane Breast Reduction Executed?
The Brisbane breast reduction can be done with a local anaesthetic or a general anaesthetic; this depends on various factors that will be evaluated before the procedure takes place. During an appointment with your cosmetic surgery, your surgeon will evaluate denominators such as procedure complexity, duration, and patient comfort.
Procedure incisions – Incisions are made during a Brisbane breast reduction, but they can be different depending on the technique used. If breast tissue must be removed as well as fat, the incisions are larger. However, if liposuction is the sole technique, then the surgeon only implements small nicks.
When the nicks are made into the treatment area, the surgeon can remove excess fat through the regular suction process. Excisions can take place too if the surgeon must remove excess breast tissue to acquire the desired breast shape and size. In some cases, the surgeon may need to remove excess skin too; this is only the case in patients who require a large reduction.

Brisbane Breast Reduction Recovery
Even patients who have the minimally invasive technique of liposuction for their breast reduction must take some time to recover. The patient must also adhere to the post-recovery guidelines provided by their clinic, as these can enhance the recovery process and reduce the risk and potential of complications.
Patients who had a breast reduction are usually required to wear a compression garment around the treatment area once they leave the clinic. The garment has several purposes. Firstly, it supports the new shape of the breasts during the healing process. Secondly, it reduces the intensity of some side-effects that can be experienced post-liposuction; this may include bruising and swelling. Once the compression garment no longer has to be worn, the patient may be required to wear a support bra for some time.
Since the area can be sensitive and tender during the recovery, patients should not do any rigorous physical activity or heavy lifting during the healing process. Doing exercise could cause complications, or increase the chance of infection, as sweat could enter the wounds.
Despite the fact you cannot do any rigorous exercise for a little while, patients may find that the reduction in weight and size of the breasts benefits their workout once they are recovered. The procedure often causes a breast lift as well, which can do wonders for confidence in the gym.
Patients who had their procedure under general anaesthesia should not make important decisions or sign legal documents for at least twenty-four hours after leaving the day surgery.
To ensure all our patients know what to do when they leave our clinic after a breast reduction, The Dr Lanzer Clinic always provides a full overview with post-operative guidelines. Your post-operative recovery may also include the use of certain medications to prevent infection or to manage any discomfort you may encounter as a result of your treatment.
What Is The Cause Of Feminine Breasts In Men?
Men can encounter a more feminine chest, which can be caused by excess breast tissue as well as fat. Obesity can be a contributor as well, so losing the weight and exercising can be a solution for some patients. However, there is a percentage of patients who keep on encountering the problem despite being on their target weight.
One of the causes of feminine breasts in men is a hormonal imbalance. The male body contains hormones such as oestrogen and testosterone. If too much oestrogen ends up in the body of a male patient, it could lead to growth of breast tissue. In turn, this could cause a more feminine chest.
The cause of a hormonal imbalance is often difficult to determine. It can be caused by a variety of reasons; this ranges from the excessive consumption of alcohol to problems with the immune system. To ensure the problem does not return, it is advised to speak with your doctor to determine the exact cause.
Of course, a hormonal imbalance is not the only reason why man boobs could occur. In some cases, medications can contribute to the problem as well. If you currently take medications, it is a good idea to report such medications to your cosmetic surgery. If these medications are the cause, an alternative could be suggested before you consider breast augmentation surgery.
How Long Do The Results From Gynaecomastia Treatment Last?
The results from man boob surgery are long-term in nature post-operatively, but it is important for patients to maintain a healthy lifestyle afterwards. Exercising on a regular basis and eating clean are the foundation of maintenance. If you need some help with exercise or diet post-treatment, you can get some additional assistance from The Dr Lanzer Clinic.
Results obtained from this kind of reduction mammaplasty also depend heavily on the technique used. For example, men with sagging excess skin due to weight loss will have this skin removed during the procedure as well. In other cases, breast skin does not need to be removed as the reduction with liposuction is enough to get the desired results.
