Breast Reduction

Breast Reduction

Breast reduction surgery, also known as a boob reduction or a mammoplasty is an operation to reduce the size, the weight and the total volume of the breast at the same time as providing an uplift of both the breast tissue and the nipple level if required. It is a popular operation for all age groups.


A breast reduction is not purely a cosmetic procedure. Many women with large, heavy breasts suffer with back pain, neck pain, discomfort where their bra digs in to their shoulders and breasts and practical problems with difficulty finding clothes that fit well. Breast reduction surgery can address all of these issues as well as improving the aesthetic appearance of the breasts.


As a specialist breast surgeon, Mr Pieri has developed many techniques for performing a breast reduction, rather than implementing a “one size fits all” approach. During consultation, Mr Pieri will be able to discuss the best option for you with regards to where the scars will need to be positioned. Often the traditional “inverted T” or anchor shape scar pattern is used but sometimes only a vertical incision is required or even just a scar around the circumference of the nipple or areola area is needed.
