Mr Morritt is a specialist in cosmetic breast surgery. He regularly undertakes all types of cosmetic breast surgery at the Spire Claremont Private Hospital and Thornbury Private Hospital in Sheffield. In contrast to some Plastic surgeons who have general Plastic surgery practices (offer all types of procedures for all areas of the body), Andrew has specialised in cosmetic breast and body surgery.
Breast augmentation (breast enlargement or a ‘boob job’)
Breast size can be increased either by inserting breast implants or by fat transfer (lipofilling). This is also known as breast augmentation, breast enlargement or a boob job. Mr Morritt frequently inserts silicone breast implants for breast enlargement. Modest increases in breast size can be achieved with fat transfer (lipofilling) breast augmentation.
Breast reduction (Reduction mammaplasty)
Breast reduction surgically reduces the size of the breasts and improves breast shape. Mr Morritt typically also lifts the breasts and nipples during breast reduction surgery. The areolae are also routinely reduced in size during breast reduction. Mr Morritt also offers liposuction breast reduction surgery which avoids the typical scars that occur with the most frequently performed breast reduction techniques. Liposuction breast reduction is only suitable for ladies who have predominantly fatty breasts (these tend be older women). In contrast to breast reduction surgery, liposuction breast reduction does not significantly lift the breasts or nipples.
Breast lift (breast uplift or mastopexy)
Breast lift surgery involves surgically lifting the breasts and nipples. Mastopexy improves breast shape by removing excess skin and by remodelling the breast tissue. The surgery gives the bust a more youthful contour with more upper fullness and less breast droop.
Combined breast lift with breast augmentation (augmentation mastopexy)
Breast size is increased with breast implants and the breasts and nipples are lifted. In selected challenging cases Mr Morritt with combine breast uplift with reduction of breast tissue and insertion of breast implants.
Male breast reduction (Gynaecomastia correction)
Overdevelopment of breast tissue in men is called gynaecomastia. Gynaecomastia is also known as ‘man boobs’ or ‘moobs’. Gynaecomastia can affect one or both sides of the chest. Liposuction alone or in combination with surgery is used to reduce the size of the breasts.
