Breast Reduction Houston

Women with large breasts sometimes experience pain, improper posture, rashes, breathing problems, skeletal deformities, and low self-esteem. Breast reduction surgery, also known as reduction mammaplasty, is a surgical procedure that can provide relief from these symptoms.

 During breast reduction surgery, which is performed under general anesthesia, fat and glandular tissue are removed, and skin is tightened, producing smaller, lighter breasts that are in a healthier proportion to the rest of the body.

Breast reduction surgery generally takes two to four hours, depending on the patient’s specific case, and is performed under general anesthesia. The size and shape of the breasts, as well as the desired amount of reduction, help determine which type of incision is most appropriate, and the types of incisions include:

Standard Incision

The traditional approach to breast reduction surgery is a very effective method for alleviating discomfort caused by large, heavy breasts. In this approach, incisions are made horizontally, under the breast, in the crease and extend vertically up to and around the nipple, creating an anchor pattern.Traditional breast reduction surgery allows for the removal of excess skin, both vertically and horizontally, therefore it is typically the best method for women with extremely large breasts. The anchor shaped incision also allows surgeons to remove more tissue than other methods, maximizing breast reduction results. The nipples are usually moved to a higher position on the breast during this procedure.

Vertical Incision

The vertical incision technique, also known as the short scar or LeJour breast reduction, typically results in shapelier breasts and less scarring than traditional breast reduction surgery. With this technique, the incision extends around the areola and vertically down to the breast crease, forming a lollipop pattern. The vertical incision approach eliminates the need for a horizontal incision along the breast crease, and is a popular alternative to the traditional method, especially for women who do not require extensive tissue removal.
