Breast Reduction | Cosmos Clinic Adelaide
When considering a Breast Reduction, it is important to note that there are two options available depending on each patient’s circumstances. In your initial Breast Reduction consultation at Cosmos Clinic, our doctors will assess you and let you know whether Vaser Liposuction Breast Reduction or Surgical Breast Reduction would best suit your needs.
Please note that we do not perform Surgical Breast Reductions at our Adelaide clinic.
What is the difference between a Vaser Liposuction Breast Reduction and a Surgical Breast Reduction?
Vaser Lipo is used on women whose breasts are larger due to an excess of fatty tissue. This tissue can be simply removed using liposuction.
Surgical Breast Reduction is required when a woman’s breasts are larger due to an excess of glandular tissue.
Vaser Liposuction for Excess Fatty Tissue in Breasts
This is a less invasive option, needing only a twilight sedation. Vaser Liposuction has a minimal recover time, and minimal scarring, with only tiny incisions created to allow for the liposuction cannula to be inserted. This type of procedure can also give a lift to your breasts due to the removal of the excess weight.
Surgical Breast Reduction for Excess Glandular Tissue
If the cause of your large breasts is glandular tissue and not fatty tissue, a traditional Breast Reduction surgery will be required. This will be carried out under a general anaesthetic. This procedure involves removing excess tissue and skin, then relocating the nipple to the breasts new lifted position.
How much does a Breast Reduction cost?
This depends on each patient’s situation, although prices start from as low as $5,500. Your initial consultation will cost $200, although this will be taken off your total costs if you decide to go ahead with your procedure.
