Breast Reduction

Breast reduction surgery can successfully improve pain, discomfort and embarrassment that is frequently associated with large breasts. Mr Floyd uses a supero-medial pedicle with either the ‘inverted T’ or the vertical scar technique depending on the individual characteristics of the breast.
