If you’re looking for a breast reduction in Australia, we’ve got you covered. Our staff is highly trained and ready to help you find the perfect surgeon for your needs.
We’ll start with an overview of how breast reduction surgery works, then we’ll go into what it’s like to get one done. Finally, we’ll talk about what happens after the procedure.
Breast reduction surgery works by removing fat and excess skin from the breasts in order to reduce their size. This can help women who are experiencing pain or discomfort due to oversized breasts. It may also help them feel more confident about their appearance in general.
The procedure can take anywhere from one hour up to six hours depending on how much work needs to be done on your body. The majority of patients will require only one overnight stay at the hospital following their surgery, but some may need additional recovery time depending on their unique circumstances and physical condition prior to undergoing surgery (such as pregnant women).
After undergoing breast reduction surgery, there will be some scarring around your nipples but usually not much else visible because this area tends not be very vascularized (meaning it doesn’t have many blood vessels running through it). You may also experience bruising at this same location which can last anywhere

BEFORE & AFTER GALLERY
What can I expect during surgery?
Breast reduction surgery requires approximately two-to-three hours of time to complete and is done under general anesthesia.
“I specialise in short scar breast surgery,” Dr Jane explains. “The scar sits neatly around the areola and runs from the areola down to the breast crease.”
This approach involves making a lollipop-shaped incision in the breast with tissue being removed from the bottom and side. This ensures the blood flow to the nipple and areola remain intact. The short-scar technique results in breasts that stay high, are well contoured and have less visible scarring.
How long is the recovery period?
Women who undergo breast reduction surgery can expect an overnight stay in hospital. For most women, two-to-three weeks off work is also necessary after the procedure, with about six weeks of limited activity and no heavy lifting. Dr. Jane will schedule follow-up appointments to check you are comfortable and healing well.
What are the costs of Breast Reduction Surgery?
Many factors impact the cost of your surgery, so it is essential to schedule a consultation with Dr. Jane to learn the exact costs. Factors that affect the costs of your surgery include typical surgical costs, anesthesiologist/anesthesia fees, surgeon’s fees, garment fees, and medication fees.
You are encouraged to check with your health insurance provider to learn if some of the costs of the procedure are covered under your plan.
