In a recent article written by the Australian Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (ASAPS), Dr Anh expresses that plastic surgeons are not solely responsible for body shaming issues. This article was written in response to the media frenzy about the issue of Specialist Plastic Surgeons’ social media being responsible for body image anxiety. In the […]
Enlarged breasts can cause stress on the back and neck muscles, resulting in unnecessary discomfort and pain
If you are suffering from back and neck pain due to large, heavy breasts, Dr Anh and her professional team can help you. Often women who have breasts that are too large for their frame may suffer neck, shoulder and back pain, rashes under their breasts and grooves in their shoulders from bra straps. Furthermore, they may have trouble exercising, have difficulty finding clothing and bras that fit and feel self-conscious about their appearance.
What is a breast reduction?
Breast reduction surgery is designed to reduce the size and weight of the breasts and to reshape and uplift the breasts. It can be one of the most rewarding procedures for patient and surgeon. Dr Anh will discuss all of the options available to you at your consultation.
What should I expect in my consultation?
The initial consultation can be daunting for you. It is only natural to feel nervous about revealing your concerns about your breasts and it is only natural to feel self-conscious when sharing your personal feelings about your appearances with someone you have never met before. Dr Anh Nguyen understands that you may feel this way and will try to make the consultation as comfortable for you as possible.
Dr Anh and her cosmetic consultants will spend about 45 minutes with you to gain a better understanding of why you are seeking a breast reduction, what results you want to achieve from the reduction mammaplasty and what your expectations are of having the procedure. Dr Anh will obtain a medical and surgical history and then examine you.
Thereafter, she will discuss with you what options are available to you (type of breast reduction, scars, size of reduction etc), complications and implications if a complication were to occur, the steps that will be taken to minimise these complications, the aftercare and expected postoperative recovery.
She will show you before and after photos of her patients who have had a breast reduction, answer any of your questions and provide you with written material about breast reduction surgery for you to take home. A quote will be given to you at the end of the consultation and the practice manager will explain all of the costs involved in the surgery.
Dr Nguyen believes that the decision to undergo cosmetic surgery is a very personal and important one and should not be made without considerable research, information and understanding. That is why she will recommend you go and seek other opinions, obtain as much information as possible and be comfortable with the surgeon you choose to perform the cosmetic surgery for you.
Dr Nguyen will recommend a second consultation with you, to go over things again and cover any further questions that you might have.

Breast Reduction Perth FAQs
Having larger breasts means that there is a lot more weight on the chest, adding far more strain on the back when bending over and lifting, resulting in back pain. Furthermore many large breasted women worsen their back pain by slouching and having poor posture in order to reduce the appearance of their bust line. Eventually the back pain can become so bad that it prevents women from comfortably carrying out everyday activities such as working and exercising comfortably. In this instance it is worthwhile consulting with a female plastic surgeon and considering breast reduction surgery.
There are also several skin problems that are a complication of having larger breasts, most commonly occurring in the area underneath the breasts, which is difficult to keep dry. Yeast infections, heat rash and chaffing is a common complaint. Chaffing occurs when the inside of the upper arms constantly rubs against the sides of breasts, or if the bra is ill-fitting and the breasts rub against the fabric and straps. Yeast infections and heat rash are also common skin problem. This occurs because sweat becomes trapped and does not evaporate, causing itching, irritation and skin discolouration. Again, daily suffering from these skin problems can have a debilitating effect and a breast reduction may be the able to provide the relief that is needed.
Having a large chest can also make some women feel overly self-conscious as well as making it difficult to find fashionable and comfortable clothes that fit. Large breasts can also stop women from partaking in sporting activities.
Large breasts put more pressure on the surrounding muscles and skin and after time can start to droop. It is possible to remove this sagginess and lessen the likeliness of the problem recurring by undergoing breast reduction surgery.
