About Breast Reduction

Breast reduction aids in the alleviation of physical and physiological discomfort caused by excessive breast tissue.  Breast reduction addressing physical relief is a medically insured procedure to help remove weight from the chest, reducing back and shoulder pain.  It also helps to increase activity levels in the process.  Over the past decade, Dr. Oxley has performed hundreds of breast reductions varying in size from the smaller "lift" variety to those requiring more significant reductions from each breast.


The Procedure

Different techniques exist and are tailored to the needs of the individual based on their expectations and realistic outcome.  There are limits to how much and how little can be removed during a reduction to achieve a benefit and to prevent certain complications.  Dr. Oxley uses different scar patterns, including the Weiss and No Vertical Scar procedures.  He is one of the leading surgeons utilizing the short scar or vertical scar breast reduction, having one of the highest volumes of the procedure in B.C.  Dr. Oxley will discuss the various options with you to determine which procedure will best meet your needs.  The surgery is performed as a day-care surgery which means you go home the same day as your surgery.  In many cases the BC health plan will cover the costs of this procedure.  



Most patients can return to regular activity within a couple of weeks of surgery and feel normal after a month or so.  The exact recovery time is dependant on a number of individual factors including the amount of tissue removed.  Sensation can be altered temporarily and the ability to breast feed is slightly reduced.


What to Expect

The final results achieved through breast reduction surgery can often take up to a year to settle.  Below are some before and after pictures that illustrate some of the results that have been achieved through breast reduction.
