ARROYO PLASTIC SURGERY
Breast Reduction Houston TX
Breasts that are too large and heavy may lead to physical complaints such as neck and upper back pain, rashes beneath the breasts, and bra grooves on the shoulders. Furthermore, many women with macromastia (abnormally large breasts) feel self-conscious when wearing certain types of clothing, and may be unable to comfortably engage in certain physical activities. Breast reduction – also referred to as reduction mammoplasty – is a cosmetic surgery procedure that resizes and reshapes the female breasts in order to alleviate the symptoms of macromastia. Your plastic surgeon will work to remove excess tissue while sculpting the breasts in order to achieve a rounded, full, natural and beautiful appearance. Most women who need and receive a breast reduction report an astounding boost in self confidence and an improved quality of life.

Breast Reduction FAQ
What are the benefits of breast reduction surgery?
Breast reduction can help alleviate physical and emotional symptoms of macromastia such as shoulder strain, back and neck pain, skin irritation and infection, poor posture, shortness of breath, social embarrassment, difficulty finding clothing that fits correctly, and low self-confidence. During your breast reduction in West Houston TX, Dr. Arroyo will utilize advanced surgical methods to achieve the desired aesthetic outcome while minimizing the risk of side effects.
Will there be scarring?
Scars are an inevitable consequence of any surgical procedure where an incision is made into the skin. Following your reduction surgery consultation, Dr. Arroyo will determine and discuss with you using a state of the art virtual tool, the best incision pattern to use in order to minimize scarring. Furthermore, the surgeon takes extra care to conceal any resulting scars in areas where they are hardly visible.
What is the short scar procedure?
Short scar reduction mammoplasty is a minimal procedure that is typically performed when the amount of breast tissue to be removed is not massive. Dr. Arroyo will determine the best possible surgical procedure to suit your needs following your initial plastic surgery consultation at his office.
Will my breasts grow large again?
Breast reduction is considered to be a permanent solution for addressing excessively large breasts. However, keep in mind that if you become pregnant or gain weight, this can negatively impact the outcome of this surgery. Dr. Arroyo recommends that you adhere to a healthy diet and exercise regimen in order to maintain the results of this procedure.
Will reduction mammoplasty improve nipple sensation?
The weight of large breasts can stretch nerves and lead to diminished nipple sensation. Sometimes, reduction mammoplasty can help improve this lost sensation. Make sure to discuss any nipple sensation concerns you may have with Dr. Arroyo well before the surgery.
