If you naturally have heavy, large breasts you may be suffering from physical and psychological burdens. The excessive weight of larger breasts can cause constant shoulder, neck and back pain. Chafing and rashes are also quite common.
Having large breasts can also bring unwanted social attention. Being able to fit stylish clothing and finding a bra that gives you adequate support can also be frustrating. For those of you facing these problems, a breast reduction at McLean Clinic in Mississauga can bring you relief.
A breast reduction, also known as a reduction mammoplasty is a procedure for women with large, heavy breasts who want to make them smaller and more in proportion to their body. Larger breasts can sag due to aging, weight gain, pregnancy or breast-feeding. Breast reduction surgery removes excess breast tissue and reshapes the breast. Dr. McLean uses the modern technique of vertical reduction surgery for most clients. This procedure results in a more desirable “lollipop” scar and gives the breast a favourable lift and youthful shape. Liposuction is also used during a McLean Clinic breast reduction ensuring your new shape is contoured to the rest of your body.
Your new and improved silhouette achieved by a McLean Clinic breast reduction in Mississauga will provide you with comfort and improved self-esteem.
The breast reduction procedure is performed as day surgery at Dr. McLean’s fully-accredited private cosmetic facility in Mississauga. There is no overnight hospital stay. Dr. McLean does not insert tubes or drains and patients are able to recover comfortably at home. Individually-tailored medication is prescribed to alleviate discomfort. We like to see you the following day to make sure your needs are met and that all is well. Usually you can return to work within a week or two and resume normal physical activities such as exercise a few weeks later.

The cost of a breast reduction varies according to what you and Dr. McLean determine is required to give you the look you want with the best results. Your questions and concerns will be addressed personally by Dr. McLean and his team during an in-depth consultation.
Many women who undergo breast reduction surgery have other areas of concern they would like addressed. Breast reductions are often accompanied by additional liposuction and or a tummy tuck. Clients often opt for a breast reduction or breast lift when undergoing a Mommy Makeover at McLean Clinic.
We all know that we take risks in life every day. The risks of surgery are very much like those of everyday life: really bad things (like being hit by a truck) are rare. Less bad things (like getting a hangnail) are more common.
When we think of the downside of surgery we think of things like infection (most infections are readily treatable), bleeding (generally well controlled during surgery), fluid collection, bad scars (wide, lumpy or discoloured, for example) and healing problems (leading to unexpected scarring). Most plastic surgery involves two sides of the body and they are never totally identical with or without surgery. Sensation can be altered by surgery. For example, loss of nipple sensation is a risk of many breast procedures.
As part of your preparation for surgery at the McLean Clinic, we provide you with information about the risks of the procedures you are undergoing. This is to inform you, not to frighten you! You will have the opportunity to discuss the risks with your doctor and we encourage you to ask questions and make sure that you understand everything you need to.
