Enjoy a More Proportionate Bust

Breast reduction, also known as mammoplasty surgery, is a surgical technique used to reduce the sagging and heaviness of large breasts. By reducing the breasts in size and lifting them to a higher position on the chest, this procedure creates exciting aesthetic results, as well as immediate relief from neck, back, and shoulder strain. In fact, breast reduction patients are among the happiest plastic surgery patients, thanks to the way it improves their overall quality of life. To learn more, reach out and set up your consultation at our Houston location today.

If you are a healthy woman with large, sagging, heavy, or pendulous breasts, then you are potentially an ideal candidate for the breast reduction Houston procedure. During your consultation with Dr. Vitenas, he will get to know your personal goals and help you decide upon the procedure that is right for you.

Here at Vitenas Cosmetic Surgery, we’re excited to be offering our patients a number of solutions to some of life’s most frustrating cosmetic issues. You’re likely to be a great candidate for breast reduction if you’re experiencing:

Your Consultation

Before scheduling your mammoplasty, you’ll be scheduled for a consultation appointment with Dr. Vitenas. During this appointment, he will go over the breast reduction procedure in detail, answering any questions you may have. He will also perform a physical exam, and discuss your aesthetic desires. 

After reviewing before and after photographs of past breast reduction patients, you’ll decide together if the mammoplasty is right for your needs. If so, the exact cost will be determined and a personalized surgical plan will be created. Dr. Vitenas prides himself on his commitment to working closely with each of his patients.

The Day of Your Breast Reduction Surgery

Breast reduction typically takes between two and three hours to perform, using general anesthesia. Dr. Vitenas performs cosmetic breast reduction at the adjacent Houston Surgery Center. This accredited, outpatient surgery center is located within the same building as Vitenas Cosmetic Surgery.

Dr. Vitenas' Breast Reduction Surgical Technique

To begin the mammoplasty, Dr. Vitenas will make an “inverted T” incision, which circles the areola, runs down the center of the breast, and horizontally crosses the breast crease. 

Next, fatty tissue, glandular tissue, and skin will be removed. Liposuction is often used in the armpit region to achieve a more attractive breast contour.

It has been almost seven years since I was a patient of yours for breast reduction. I have been wanting to thank you for everything you did for me. I had a life-changing experience when I underwent surgery and would recommend the surgery, but most of all the surgeon (you) to any- and everyone. Thank you, again, for changing my life and making me feel better. Keep up the good work and maybe I’ll see you again in the future. To this day, I still talk about my surgery when asked, and I always say that if I had to do it again, I would in a heartbeat. Thanks to you, my experience was a pleasant one.

Recovering After Your Breast Reduction

Following your breast reduction in Houston, the initial recovery will take less than ten days, with your full recovery taking about two to four weeks to complete.

Your breasts may be a bit sore and swollen initially, but we’ll provide you with medication to help control any swelling and discomfort you’ll experience.

Most patients are back at work after a period of a few weeks, though we recommend that exercise be postponed for six weeks. We’ll provide you with a special surgical bra to wear for several days, and Dr. Vitenas will help you understand exactly what you can expect in terms of post-surgical scarring during your consultation.
