Breast Reduction in Houston, TX
Breast reduction (mammoplasty) allows breasts to be reduced to a size that is more proportionate to the body. Dr. German Newall, a board-certified plastic surgeon, offers breast reduction surgery to women in Houston, Post Oak, Sugar Land, Katy, and all other surrounding areas.
What is a Breast Reduction?
Breast reduction is a plastic surgery procedure that reduces the breast fat, skin, and glandular tissues to resize the breasts and re-position the nipples; afterwards, the breasts will be smaller and more proportional to the body. The procedure aims to help women with large breasts feel comfortable and confident. Heavy or excessively large breasts can interfere with a woman’s ability to have an active lifestyle and can cause her to feel self-conscious about her appearance.
How is a Breast Reduction Performed?
The technique used to reduce the size of your breasts will be determined by your individual condition, breast composition, and amount of reduction desired. Dr. Newall will discuss the surgery details with you during your consultation to ensure that you are fully comfortable with the treatment plan.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Breast Reduction?
If you are struggling with overly large breasts that are hindering your day-to-day activities or causing you pain, then breast reduction surgery may be right for you. You are a good candidate for breast reduction surgery if you are someone who is feeling great discomfort from the weight of your breasts. If you are feeling back pain, shoulder pain, neck pain, skin chafing, and shoulder indentions from tight bra straps, you may want to consider breast reduction. Breast reduction should be postponed for those women who plan to breast feed, and for girls whose breasts are not yet fully developed. However, if excessively large breasts are causing serious difficulties, Dr. Newall may recommend surgery for a younger patient. The procedure is performed under general anesthesia in an outpatient surgical setting.
Benefits of Breast Reduction Surgery
Breast reduction surgery can produce meaningful improvements in your health and well-being, such as:
- Relieves discomfort of extra weight on your chest
- Reduces skin irritation from breasts rubbing on the upper abdomen
- Can help to alleviate back pain caused by the weight of the breasts and poor posture
- Can help to reduce neck pain
- Can reduce the number of headaches and migraines that are caused by neck and shoulder strain
- Emotional benefits can include increased self-esteem and self-confidence
- Increased ability to engage in physical activity like running and aerobic exercise
Breast Reduction Surgery
Breast reduction surgery is a fairly straightforward surgery, and the recovery time is usually only one to two weeks. A breast reduction is performed under general anesthesia and normally is an outpatient procedure. The surgery typically takes only two to three hours and most patients will be able to go home the same day. Dr. Newall will make sure that you leave with a set of post-op instructions and clearly understand the post-surgery care and precautions.
