What is breast reduction?
Breast reduction is a custom surgery to remove excess fat, skin, and glandular tissue to reduce breast size and weight. Medically-termed a “reduction mammoplasty,” the procedure may be performed for cosmetic reasons, or to resolve various symptoms associated with overlarge breasts, such as back and neck pain, headaches, rashes, or other problems.
When your breasts are too large…
If you are living with large, heavy breasts, it is likely that you are weary of dealing with problems such as back and neck pain, deep bra strap grooves, rashes, or trouble finding properly-fitting clothing. You may find it difficult to engage in physical activities or feel self-conscious about your breasts – or even attract unwanted attention. Breast reduction in Houston with Dr. Mohan can be life-changing.
How does breast reduction work?
Breast reduction in Houston with Dr. Mohan can greatly help women who suffer the effects of large breasts. Breast reduction is a surgical procedure that effectively reduces the size and weight of the breasts, lifts the breast and nipple to the proper position, and tightens the skin. The result is much lighter, youthful, shapely breasts.
Imagine having the figure you want, rather than constantly dealing with overlarge, heavy, saggy breasts. Breast reduction surgery, when performed by Dr. Mohan, will reshape your natural breast tissue to create lovely, rounded, balanced breasts – at last. Please note that you must stop smoking for four weeks before and after all surgeries.
...Outstanding care and beautiful results...

What can I expect during the procedure?
Breast reduction surgery is performed in the hospital, while you are under general anesthesia. The procedure takes two to three hours and most patients go home the same day. Risks include possible loss of sensation, healing difficulty, and scarring. You will be cared for with the highest level of professional skill when under the care of Dr. Mohan and our medical team. Expect your reshaped breasts to be balanced and beautiful once healed.
While the incisions most commonly go around the areola, down the breast, and along the breast crease, new techniques used by Dr. Mohan help to keep scarring to a minimum. Our practice performs breast reduction using the latest surgical techniques. Our founder, Dr. Ciaravino, is also the author of the breast reduction chapter in a textbook written for plastic surgeons.

Yes, breast reduction surgery can potentially affect breastfeeding by reducing milk production and impairing the ability to breastfeed, though individual outcomes may vary. It's important to discuss potential risks with a healthcare provider before undergoing the procedure if breastfeeding is a future consideration.
Where do they cut for breast reduction?
During a breast reduction surgery, the surgeon typically makes incisions around the areola, vertically down to the breast crease, and horizontally along the crease, creating an anchor-shaped or inverted T-shaped incision pattern.
Do breasts grow back after a reduction?
Breasts do not typically grow back after a breast reduction surgery; however, factors like weight gain, pregnancy, or hormonal changes can affect breast size over time.
How long after breast reduction can I workout?
You should wait at least 4 to 6 weeks after a breast reduction surgery before gradually resuming strenuous workouts, but it's crucial to follow your surgeon's specific post-operative instructions for a safe and successful recovery.
