Breast Reduction – The Woodlands
Patients undergo breast reduction surgery for both medical and cosmetic reasons. Some of the most common reasons for breast reduction include the following:
- Patient feels self-conscious about her breasts and body
- Clothing that fits properly is difficult to find
- Neck and Back pain
- Shoulder indentations from bra strap
- Skin irritation around the breast crease
- Skeletal deformities
These problems can often be reduced or alleviated through reduction mammaplasty, also known as breast reduction. The Woodlands plastic surgeon Dr. Sugene Kim offers state-of-the-art breast reduction surgery to patients in the North Houston area.
How Breast Reduction Works
Breast reduction surgery removes fat, glandular tissue, and skin from the breasts, making them smaller in size, firmer, and lighter on the body’s frame. The procedure can also reduce the size of the areola (the darker skin surrounding the nipple), bringing it into proportion with the rest of the reduced breast. Patients report greater ease performing physical activity, lessened pain, and a freer, less constricted lifestyle after surgery.
Who Should Consider Breast Reduction?
The best candidates for breast reduction are women with fully formed breasts, who are mature enough to understand the procedure they are undergoing. Although some women who undergo breast reduction can breastfeed, breast reduction surgery is not recommended for women who are breastfeeding or intend to breastfeed in the future.
