You’d be hard pressed to find a more life changing surgery than breast reduction.
Women with large breasts not only suffer emotionally, but physically too – clothes that don’t fit, ogling eyes, and neck and back pain thrown in for good measure. Don’t even get us started on bras or swimwear!
That’s why breast reduction surgery will have a profound impact not only on how you look, but how you feel.
Dr Hunt’s objective with all breast reduction surgery – reduction mammoplasty – is to help you achieve smaller, firmer, better-shaped breasts that are more proportionate to the rest of your body. Dr Hunt can also reduce the size of your areola, the darker skin surrounding your nipple.
What about scarring?
Dr Hunt understands that scarring is a key concern for any plastic surgery patient, but none more than breast reductions. So, he trained with some of the world’s best plastic surgeons at the University of Texas, in order to master the technique of short-scar breast reductions.
Occasionlly, when only fat needs to be removed, liposuction alone can be used to reduce size, a technique which results in very minimal scarring.
Dr Hunt will discuss these options with you during your one-on-one consultation – you can book below.

Considering Breast Reduction?
There are some common questions that many people who are contemplating breast reduction ask, such as:
The most common technique involves an incision circling the areola, then extending down and outwards along the natural curve underneath the breast, in the shape of an upside down letter T. This allows excess skin and tissue to be gently removed, before Dr Hunt moves the nipples into their ideal position. Liposuction may also be used to remove any excess fat from the armpit area.
In the majority of cases, the nipples remain attached to their blood vessels and nerves, minimizing any loss of sensation.
After surgery, a drain will be inserted into each breast, and you will wear a surgical bra with gauze over your incisions. This serves as your dressing.
You’ll need to stay around the house for two to three days once you get home, and also eat lightly and drink plenty of fluids during this time.
You’ll then see Dr Hunt again at two weeks, three months and 12 months. Your health and satisfaction are his highest priority.
