Fair Access To Breast Reduction Needed | Dr Mark Gittos

Breast Reduction is NOT just a cosmetic procedure – it’s a beneficial CORRECTIVE reconstructive procedure to relieve women from the pain and physical and social discomforts of having very large, pendulous breasts that cause neck pain, shoulder pain, bra strap dig ins and postural back pain symptoms due to heavy breast volume.

“Patients have not been getting fair access to breast reduction surgery based on the year that they are referred, the region in which they live nor their conditions” so says a study published in the New Zealand Medical Journal.


Breast reduction surgery can significantly improve the quality of a woman’s life and brings many benefits, such as mobility, confidence and better relationships. It can eliminate bad back problems and neck pain as well as open up new avenues in life, such as exercise.

The study said: “Future demand for health services will result in a greater number of patients going without surgical treatment.  The challenge for the sector is to ensure that patients are treated fairly, irrespective of their particular condition.”
