Breast enlargement (breast augmentation or a ‘boob job’)

Breast size can be increased either by inserting breast implants or by fat transfer (lipofilling).

Breast reduction (Reduction mammaplasty)

Breast reduction surgically reduces the size of the breasts and improves breast shape. Mr Morritt typically 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 uplift (Mastopexy)

Breast uplift surgery (Mastopexy) 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.

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.
