What is breast reduction surgery?

Breast reduction surgery, also known as reduction mammoplasty, removes fat, breast tissue and skin from the breasts. If you struggle with the size of your breasts, you are not alone! Every year thousands of women undergo Breast Reduction surgery. Many women who have large breasts can have physical pain and discomfort along with self image issues. MINKST is here to help create a more proportionate body contour and ease those uncomfortable symptoms and feelings.

Pre Surgery Consultation with your MINKST surgeon

At this consultation your MINKST surgeon will listen to what you want to achieve and develop with you a personalised operation plan including:

  • Type of breast reduction
  • Whether or not you want a breast implant (to add fullness)
  • Incision planning – lollipop or inverted T
  • Scar management

Your surgeon will also ensure you have a clear understanding of the risk of breast reduction surgery.

Surgery Day

Your procedure will be performed as day surgery under general anesthetic in an accredited, licensed hospital. The surgery itself takes around two to three hours. You will spend typically a further couple of hours under close supervision in the recovery area before being discharged. You will need a responsible adult to take you home and stay with you for the first night.

Post Surgery

You will have your surgeon’s mobile phone number in case you need them and the MINKST team will regularly be in touch to ensure everything is running smoothly. We will have arranged your first post operative check up with your surgeon before you leave the hospital.

As it is a day procedure you will go home on the day you receive treatment. If you are not a local we have options for you.

Generally, the pain is manageable and medication will be prescribed to assist. Approximately a week after surgery most patients can return to work. If you have a physical job you may need longer.

During the first few weeks swelling and bruising will be present whilst the tissue is healing. This can sometimes feel quite firm, however, will gradually settle within a month after the operation.


Breast reduction, like any surgical procedure, carries certain risks that individuals should be aware of before making a decision.

Common risks associated with breast reduction include infection, bleeding, adverse reaction to anaesthesia, scarring, changes in nipple or breast sensation, asymmetry, dissatisfaction with the aesthetic outcome, and the need for future revision surgeries. Breastfeeding is usually possible after a breast lift, but some individuals might experience difficulties in producing sufficient milk.

If you are having a reduction with implants – complications specific to breast implants such as rupture, rippling, or capsular contracture (scar tissue formation around the implant) are also possible. Recent news has highlighted a potential association between textured breast implants and Anaplastic Large-Cell Lymphoma (ALCL).

It is crucial to consult with an appropriately qualified surgeon, thoroughly discuss all the potential risks, and carefully weigh the benefits against the risks to make an informed decision.


Can you claim breast reduction on Medicare?
Medicare and/or your Private Health Insurance may provide some coverage for breast reduction surgery (also known as reduction mammoplasty) if it’s deemed medically necessary. Breast reduction surgery may be considered medically necessary if the large size of the breasts causes physical discomfort, such as chronic back, neck, or shoulder pain, skin irritation, or interference with daily activities. However, each case is assessed individually, and specific criteria must be met to qualify for Medicare coverage. Contact MINKST to help you understand if you can claim any part of your breast reduction surgery on Medicare and/or Private Health Insurance.


When can I exercise after breast reduction surgery?
After breast reduction surgery, refrain from strenuous exercise for several weeks to allow for proper healing. Light activities like walking can usually be resumed soon after surgery to promote circulation. However, avoid high-impact or intense exercises until cleared by your MINKST doctor / surgeon, typically after 6+ weeks. Follow your surgeon’s post-operative instructions closely for optimal recovery and to minimise the risk of complications.
