Breast Reduction Surgery in Melbourne

Breast reduction surgery is not only about reducing the weight and size of your bust, but rebuilding your self-esteem and confidence. At Avenue Plastic Surgery, we understand the decision to undergo breast reduction surgery can be an emotional one, and for many of our patients it’s a life changing experience. Following surgery our patients report improved posture, reduced neck and back pain, and enhanced well-being.

Dr. Allan Kalus is a respected breast surgeon with extensive experience, having performed over 1,000 breast repositioning and breast reduction operations. In fact, Dr Kalus is one of the few surgeons in Australia with the experience and qualifications to perform breast surgery as a Day Case.

We hope you enjoy the following animated story about a woman having a breast reduction. It is a little “extreme “(by our Australian standards!) but nevertheless some very good points are made. I personally love the part where she says that following her breast reduction operation she could put her nose into a book for the first time! It reminded me of a breast reduction I did very many years ago for a woman who had phocomelia. This is a condition where the limbs fail to develop and it was associated with the mother taking cancer treatment drugs during pregnancy. I was working in the UK at the time and there had been many young people born without limbs due to this condition. In this particular case the woman had no arms but could feed herself very adeptly using her feet. She was able to pick up a spoon with one foot and a bowl with the other, scoop the soup from the bowl and place in into her mouth! The problem was, after she reached puberty, her breasts grew to such a size that it was no longer possible for her to place her foot close to her mouth. The breast reduction operation enabled her to continue to feed herself!

Of course, not all cases are quite so dramatic! Many women just seek the increased comfort and sense of wellbeing that comes from having a smaller and more attractive bust.

Your Breast Reduction Surgery

We provide the highest standard of safety and care before, during and after your breast reduction surgery, which can be performed as a Day Case at our fully equipped Day Surgery Centre. Our patients often return home by the afternoon and 90 percent return to normal activity after three days. Dr. Kalus is also able to perform a breast lift to compliment your reduction procedure. .

Our Three-Dimensional Approach to Breast Reduction Surgery
  1. Reduce and reshape your bust The procedure not only reduces the size of your breasts but also improves the appearance of your bust by:
    • Restoring symmetry
    • Raising the nipples
    • Reducing the areolar size to match the new breast.

    Skill and judgement are required to achieve an outstanding result.

  1. Minimally invasive approach reduces scarring and provides rapid recovery. Our expert techniques minimise the risk of post-operative bleeding, bruising and scarring
  2. Preserve breast function
    Our surgical technique preserves the central part of your breast which is attached to the nipple. As a result, many of our patients have successfully breastfed following their breast reduction surgery.
Replenishing Shoulder Grooves

Many patients considering a breast reduction also find they have developed shoulder grooves due to the heaviness of their breasts and the bra strap.

At Avenue Plastic Surgery we offer a complimentary fat transfer procedure to this area to fill these grooves.

*Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
