Breast Reduction (Female)

Symptoms:
Excessively large breasts resulting in persistent skin infections under the breast, shoulder grooving and upper back ache; Difficulty in buying bras the correct size; Saucer plate areolae from excessively large breasts.

Description of Procedure:
This operation reduces the size and recontours breasts via scars hidden around the nipple and the breast crease. Areolar size can be reduced at the same time. Dr Lim's preference is to use either the superior or inferior pedicle technique for this procedure. Reduction of the breast bulk will result in symptomatic improvement.

Anaesthesia:
  • General Anaesthesia, Intravenous sedation with paravertebral block.

Hospital Stay:
  • A day surgical procedure performed in the clinic.
  • Can also be performed in hospital at your request.

Downtime:
  • Pressure garment to be worn for 1 month
  • You will be able to walk out of the clinic
  • Normal activities can be resumed after 1 week

Breast Reduction (Male)

Symptoms:
Excessively large breasts for males (Moobs) resulting in embarrassment and in extreme cases, social withdrawal.

Description of Procedure:
This operation, using a combination of surgical excision and liposuction, reduces the size of the breasts via scars hidden around the nipple (stealth incision) which fade and become inconspicuous with time. Occasionally, larger breasts may require more extensive surgery. The natural contours of the pectoralis muscles are maintained at all times. When associated with obesity, weight control measures may be utilised before or after surgery.

Anaesthesia:
  • General Anaesthesia, Intravenous sedation with paravertebral block.

Hospital Stay:
  • A day surgical procedure performed in the clinic.
  • Can also be performed in hospital at your request.

Downtime:
  • Pressure garment to be worn for 1 month
  • You will be able to walk out of the clinic
  • Normal activities can be resumed after 1 week
