Many women experience a loss of breast firmness and elasticity as a result of breastfeeding or aging. This can cause the breast shape to become longer, reducing breast fullness and resulting in an overall loss of cleavage.

At your initial consultation, we will discuss the ideal option for your body and desired outcomes.
Reduction of large breasts can be a life changing operation. Women that undergo a breast reduction procedure experience reduced back ache and neck pain, find exercising more comfortable and can improved breast symmetry and shape. Traditional breast reduction techniques have often resulted in flat, wider breasts with a highly visible scarring.
Our technique involves reducing scar size wherever possible, and enhancing breast position and proportion. We aim to achieve a breast size and shape that is balanced and harmonious with a woman’s height and body shape.
The following breast reduction procedures are available:
For men, abnormal breast formation, a condition known as gynaecomastia, can be a result of a number of factors, such as hormone imbalance or weight gain. We use a combination of ultrasonic liposuction, short scar direct excision and (if needed) skin reduction reduce the breast size.

Women may decide to have their breast implants removed (undergo an explant procedure) for a number of different reasons. These may include;
In all of these cases it is important to remove the implant and all the surrounding capsule. Removal of the implant alone is straight forward, however if there are concerns regarding silicone leakage, or biofilm formation and its possible effect on the rest of the body, it is important to remove all the surrounding scar tissue. This is a considerably more technically difficult procedure that takes almost twice the time required to insert an implant in the first place. The capsule should then be sent for histopathological examination and microbiological culture.
Many women may elect to have tightening procedure (mastopexy or breast lift) at the time if the implant is not replaced following the explant procedure. All internal sutures used are fully disposable. If implant removal was performed for BII, Dr Lee prefers to wait for health to improve for at least 6 months before other procedures such as Autologous Fat Grafting are considered for breast enlargement.
