Not only a popular procedure among women, the breast reduction is the most common surgical procedure among men in the U.S.
Yes, in recent years breast reduction has become a very common procedure. Factor such as genetics, the ageing process, pregnancy and breast feeding, weight gain or loss, and even hormonal fluctuations can cause breasts, that were once firm and shapely, to sag and droop. A breast lift, or mastopexy, can help restore a firmer, shapelier breast and improve body contours.

What is the difference between a breast lift and a breast reduction?
If you have physical symptoms like skin or posture problems or pain, you should consider breast reduction as a possible solution. Occasionally, a woman seeking a breast lift, may benefit from a breast enlargement with implants, if her goals for breast position and projection are not achievable with a lift alone.

“I contacted Medi-Cation when I was considering having a face lift and breast augmentation. At the time I wasn’t sure about going to Phuket, Thailand, as I thought the surgery there would not be as professional as it is in NZ. Jacqui put my mind at rest.”
