Many women who are considering breast reduction surgery suffer from back pain and discomfort due to their large breasts. A breast reduction helps to achieve smaller, firmer breasts that are in better proportion to your body.
As you get older breasts can lose their shape and firmness and begin to sag. This can be due to several factors such as weight loss or weight gain, pregnancy, breastfeeding and ageing. As well as lifting the breasts, a breast lift can also firm and reshape them. Breast lift surgery can also be combined with a breast augmentation if you’d like to increase the size of your breasts, as well as lifting them.
After pregnancy many mothers find that their bodies don’t always return to how they were before pregnancy. A mummy makeover refers to a combined surgery – usually pairing a tummy tuck with either a breast lift or breast augmentation.

You may be unhappy with their shape or size, had complications with your implants such as deflation or leaking or complications after surgery. Whatever the reason, Dr Hunt can help you achieve the result you were originally hoping for.
Most women have one breast that is slightly bigger than the other, however in some cases it can be more extreme and noticeable than others. A breast reduction or a breast augmentation can help correct the discrepancy between uneven breasts.
If you have had breast surgery to treat cancer or another disease, then you may be considering a breast reconstruction. Reconstructive surgery is complex and must be tailored to your specific needs.

Dr Hunt will thoroughly explain all the options to you, and you will find a welcoming and supportive environment.
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health professional.
