Dr. Richardson has performed an extensive number of breast augmentations, and helped countless patients achieve their aesthetic goals.

Whether it be to enhance size, create symmetry, or restore volume after breast-feeding or weight loss, breast augmentation can significantly improve self-confidence and self-image.

With highly tailored techniques and implant types, Dr. Richardson is able to tailor each procedure to achieve the ideal results of each unique individual.

In many cases, women who have had children, lost a significant amount of weight, have excess skin on the breasts, or have experienced the drooping effects of natural ageing, will require a breast lift with Dr Richardson.

 This procedure will restore youthful perkiness to the breasts, and help improve confidence.

Often, women combine the breast lift procedure with breast augmentation to create their ideal aesthetic. Read more about breast lift surgery.


The effects of naturally large and heavy breasts can be both physically and mentally debilitating, with adverse pain in the neck, shoulder, and back, as well as frustration and self-consciousness.

Those suffering from too much breast tissue are candidates for breast reduction surgery.

Dr. Richardson performs breast reduction surgery to help women feel and look more proportionate, alleviating physical and mental stress, allowing them to enjoy a more carefree lifestyle.

Gynaecomastia, or the development of breasts in men, occurs due to hormonal imbalance, or possibly the use of steroids or other medications.

It’s a common medical condition that can lead to low self-esteem and depression. This can be alleviated with male breast reduction surgery by removing excess breast tissue to create a smoother, more chiselled-looking chest.

For those women who are dissatisfied with their breast surgery results from other surgeons, or are suffering from ongoing complications, revisional breast surgery is often the most appropriate option.

Undesirable or uncomfortable results can be damaging to self-confidence, and greatly affect quality of life.

For women who have already undergone breast surgery and found that their expectations weren’t met, revisional breast surgery by Dr Richardson may finally deliver the results they hoped for.
