The breasts are intrinsic to our femininity. Their shape, size and condition all contribute to our sense of inner beauty: how we feel about our body, how comfortable we are, and how the chest fits in harmony with our whole figure and appearance. Unfortunately, many women experience discomfort because of large, droopy or sagging breasts, which may cause uneasiness, physical strain, embarrassment and difficulty engaging in physical activity. Breast reduction surgery seeks to correct these symptoms and encourages patients to rediscover their sense of inner beauty.
Expert surgeon Dr Ellis Choy invites you to his warm, welcoming clinic to acknowledge and ultimately overcome your concerns. Along with his team of dedicated specialists, Dr Choy strives to create a friendly and refreshing environment where you can feel comfortable to discuss the motivations, expectations and aesthetic goals of your procedure. He performs breast reduction surgery in careful consideration of your needs before creating a result that can free your body of excess weight and ultimately broaden your lifestyle opportunities.
What is a Breast Reduction?
Breast reduction surgery is a highly personal and customisable treatment. As a commonly sought option for women across Australia, this treatment helps to redefine the breasts to produce a well-proportioned, shapelier upper body. The surgery helps to minimise pain, aching or discomfort in the area by removing excess breast tissue and contouring them for a naturally perkier aesthetic.
During the procedure, Dr Choy will perform each step following his detailed and elaborate treatment plan. He will remove any unnecessary tissue, glandular fat or excess skin from the area to free your body of excess weight, before shaping and proportioning the breasts to fit in harmony with your figure. Generally, the nipples and areolae will remain attached, and liposuction may be considered to achieve a more significant effect. In a consultation before your procedure, Dr Choy will determine the tools necessary to complete your treatment and will discuss with you the specific measures he will take to achieve your goals.
What are the Costs Involved?
The cost of your breast reduction surgery will depend on the extent of surgery required, the complexity of your procedure and the tools necessary to achieve your desired result. In your consultation, Dr Choy will take time to examine these measures – also accounting for the surgeon, facility and anaesthetist fees – to give you an idea of the expected cost.
Dr Choy is a highly practised and educated surgeon with a passion for helping others. He is driven by the aim to help patients live their best, most confident life. If you are concerned about the costs involved in your procedure, Dr Choy will be happy to discuss an affordable instalment plan that can make your breast reduction surgery a reality. Patients are advised to consider recovery time and loss of income, however, and should evaluate the possibility of entering into an ill-advised debt burden.
Will My Health Insurance Cover the Cost?
When considering breast reduction surgery, Dr Choy advises that you consult with your health fund provider to determine the extent of coverage. Some health insurers will cover the cost of the operation if your doctor deems it medically necessary to maintain your health – for instance, if you are suffering severe back or neck pain.
Dr Choy recommends that patients assess the degree of this coverage, as some insurance providers will only cover procedures that remove a certain volume of breast tissue, a metric that may not leave you with an aesthetically pleasing result. Dr Choy recognises the discomfort and pain you may have already suffered due to pendulous breasts. His objective is to not only free you of excess weight but to remind you of your most vibrant and confident self by contouring your breasts and refining your upper body. Beyond delivering exceptional surgical outcomes, Dr Choy is passionate about providing his patients with the means to live their best, most comfortable life.

Why Should I Consider A Breast Reduction?
Undergoing breast reduction surgery is a highly personal decision. Patients must take into account their financial situation, physical health and bodily habits. Many patients consider breast reduction surgery because of the pain, tension or strain caused by excess weight in the breasts. Sagging or droopiness in the area may cause back or neck pain, while pendulous breasts can also make it difficult to exercise and can result in chafing or skin irritation.
These issues can adversely affect your lifestyle: they can cause you to withdraw from social situations and can diminish your quality of life.
