What is breast reduction?

Breast reduction, known medically as reduction mammoplasty, is a personalized surgical procedure aimed at reducing excess fat, skin, and glandular tissue to alleviate the weight and size of the breasts. Whether for cosmetic enhancement or to address discomfort, such as back and neck pain, headaches, and skin rashes, breast reduction in Houston offers relief and improved quality of life.

Find relief with breast reduction

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 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.

Will I have scars after my breast reduction?

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.

Breast Reduction FAQ's

Can breast reduction affect breastfeeding?

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 breast 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.
