Achieve peace of mind and a higher quality of life with Breast Reduction

While larger breasts are a feature that many women wish they had, they can sometimes be a burden on those who live with them. Breast reduction, otherwise known as reduction mammaplasty, is a transformative surgical procedure that aims to alleviate the physical discomfort and emotional burden associated with oversized breasts. 

At Gold Coast Plastic Surgery, Dr. Lukavsky utilizes his years of expertise to offer a personalized approach to breast reduction, helping patients regain both their physical comfort and self-confidence.

What is a Breast Reduction?

A breast reduction is a surgical procedure that reduces the size, weight, and volume of overly large breasts. It can address many of the negative conditions that develop as a result of having excessively large breasts, such as physical discomfort, pain, and limitations in daily activities. During the procedure, excess breast tissue, fat, and skin are removed, allowing for the remaining breast tissue to be reshaped and create smaller breasts that are more in proportion with the patient’s figure.

What are the benefits of breast reduction?

Physical comfort

Breast reduction can significantly alleviate the physical discomfort that results from oversized breasts. Some examples include back and neck pain, shoulder grooving from bra straps, and skin irritation beneath the breasts.

Improved posture

With reduced breast size and weight, many patients find that their posture improves, as they no longer have to compensate for the excess weight from overly large breasts. 

Improved mobility

Patients find that they can engage in physical activities with greater ease and comfort, improving their overall quality of life.

Emotional well-being

Breast reduction often gives patients a significant boost in self-esteem and body image. Many patients experience a new sense of confidence and improved self-image after the procedure.

Who is a candidate for a breast reduction?

Breast reduction is suitable for virtually all women who are struggling with the physical and emotional effects of having oversized breasts. Ideal candidates typically exhibit the following characteristics:

  • Physical discomfort, such as back and neck pain, caused by the weight of large breasts
  • Emotional distress and limitations in daily activities due to issues related to overly large breasts
  • Good general health and emotional well-being

During your consultation with Dr. Lukavsky at Gold Coast Plastic Surgery, he will evaluate your current condition and medical history to determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure. 

What does the procedure entail?

A breast reduction is a surgical procedure that involves several key steps:


Patients come in for a consultation, during which they will have the opportunity to go over their goals, preferences, and concerns with Dr. Lukavsky. During this meeting, the details of the procedure, such as the type of incisions and the extent of the reduction, will be determined.


Breast reduction procedures are typically performed under anesthesia to ensure that the patient is comfortable throughout the treatment. Dr. Lukavsky will help you choose which type of anesthesia is right for you. 

Incision and reduction

Dr. Lukavsky will make the necessary incisions and remove breast tissue and fat, creating breasts that are smaller and more proportionate to the patient’s body. 

Closing the incisions

Once the breasts have been fully resized and reshaped, the incisions are closed to ensure a healthy recovery.

The recovery period following breast reduction surgery varies for every patient. In the immediate postoperative period, most patients experience some discomfort, swelling, and bruising, which will dissipate over time and can be managed with prescription medications. 

When he feels you are ready, Dr. Lukavsky will give you the clear to get back to your usual activities. While the pace of recovery is unique to each individual, most experience a noticeable improvement in their comfort, mobility, and overall well-being as healing progresses. The full benefits of the procedure become more apparent as the body fully recovers.

Are there any side effects?

As with any surgical procedure, there are some potential side effects that may accompany a breast reduction. These typically include bruising, swelling, scarring, infection, or complications related to anesthesia. Dr. Lukavsky will provide patients with more information on these risks during the consultation.
