“I didn’t just want a reduction in size, I wanted my breasts to be reshaped and pretty looking like they were in my late teens. That may sound ambitious but that’s exactly what I got. Whatever about the rest of me, my boobs look at least 20 years younger and that makes me a very happy woman. It was one of the best decisions I ever made. Anyone considering a reduction, I say go for it! Thank you Avoca Clinic, you changed my life.”
– Amanda Brunker, Journalist, Author and TV Personality.
A breast reduction (mammoplasty) will reduce the size of larger breasts, which can cause backache, neck pain, marks in the shoulders from bra straps and rashes under the breasts. The tissue is removed to make your breasts smaller and your breasts are lifted to give you your desired shape.
Having recently undergone breast reduction surgery, Maria Redmond’s series of vlogs for The Avoca Clinic offer sage advice and helpful tips for life post-surgery.
Amanda Brunker, model, author and journalist has also had a Breast Reduction / Uplift with The Avoca Clinic, read about her Avoca experience here.
A breast reduction procedure will normally take about 2 to 2.5 hours and is carried out under general anaesthetic. We invite our patients to stay overnight after this procedure to recover in our private rooms under the care of our experienced medical team.
Recovery & Results
Following surgery, you will be wearing a support or post-op bra when you leave our clinic. You will be asked to diligently follow our discharge instructions so that you will recover as safely and speedily as possible. This is in your best interest which is our main concern post-surgery.
On the day of the surgery, you will be given your post-operative dressing appointments. These appointments are set in advance, however if you cannot attend, it is recommended that you visit your GP instead.
We will also schedule a 2 to 3-week review with your plastic surgeon. For your complete assurance, there is a nurse-on-call 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year to answer any questions you may have after your procedure.
As with all our surgeries, you will have all the reassurance that comes with our “Open Door” aftercare policy. Once you have been treated at The Avoca Clinic, our door will always be open to you, anytime you need us. So, when we say we take care of you before, during and after your procedure, we really mean it.
Your Questions Answered
What about scarring and recovery time?
The good news is that techniques have evolved and most women in the hands of our expert surgeons at The Avoca Clinic will just have the periareolar incision or ‘lollipop scar’. The recovery time varies from patient to patient but most women, who diligently follow our discharge instructions will be back at work within 10 days of this procedure.
