The displayed before and after pictures are provided as an educational tool to demonstrate some of the results achievable from plastic surgery. All surgeries on this page are performed by Dr Eddy Dona and are published with the written consent by the patients.
Before & after images are generally shown between 3-6 months post-surgery. These images are not a guarantee that you will have similar results, regardless of if you have a similar body type or shape. This is because, with each patient, many different variables exist that can affect the outcome.
All surgery carries risks, requires recovery time, and the results will vary for each individual patient.

Breast reduction surgery, also known as reduction mammaplasty, is intended to reduce the size of your breasts by removing excess breast tissue and skin, improving their shape and position. Overly large breasts often cause physical discomfort, including back, neck and shoulder pain. Breast reduction surgery relieves pain and discomfort and often makes a dramatic improvement to your lifestyle.
Depending on the size and shape of your breasts, the amount of skin and tissue to be removed, quality of skin and positioning of the nipples, Dr Eddy Dona will recommend one of these methods.
Robbins Method – The anchor shaped scar technique is the most common and involves an incision with the resultant scars extending around the areola, vertically down from the lower edge of the areola to the fold/crease of the breast and horizontally along the natural curve of the breast. After the excess skin, fat and breast tissue are removed, the nipple and areola are moved to a higher position and stitched to reshape the breast. This is ideal for most moderate to large reductions.
Lejour Method (or other vertical scar techniques) – This technique does not include the scar running horizontally along the curve of the breast, but results in a vertical scar or “lollipop” type scar. This is ideal for most mild to moderate reductions.
Benelli Method – Involves two circular incisions around the areola, one larger than the other. Skin and breast tissue are then removed between the two. This method results in one scar around the areola but can leave the breast looking flat. It also doesn’t allow for a significant “lift” of the breast tissue. This is most suitable for very minimal reductions.
In almost all breast reduction procedures, the nipples and areolas remain attached to their blood and nerve supply while they are repositioned. However, if the breasts are extremely large and the nipples and areolas are near waist level then they may have to be completely removed and repositioned. This will cause permanent loss of sensation in the nipple, and you will be unable to breastfeed.
