Why Consider Breast Reduction?
Women commonly consider breast reduction, also known as reduction mammoplasty, for many reasons. Some of the most common reasons include:
- Large breasts are causing neck and back pain
- Large breasts interfere with sports and physical activity
- Breasts are asymmetrical (one breast is larger than the other)
- Bra straps cause bruising and chafing
- Overly large breasts attract unwanted attention or cause embarrassment
- Finding clothes that fit comfortably is too challenging due to breast size
If you wish you had smaller breasts, you may be a good candidate for breast reduction. Many women find that reducing the size of their breasts gives them a perkier, more feminine contour and eliminates many of the physical and emotional issues associated with large breasts. Please note that to be considered as a candidate for breast reduction surgery, you must have a BMI of 40 or less.

Your Breast Reduction Options
If you’ve made the decision to move forward with breast reduction in Houston, TX, you’ll have a few options to consider. While some women prefer a subtle decrease in breast size, others may want a dramatically smaller shape. Depending on your goals, you and Dr. Basu can develop an approach that works best for you.
Many women choose to combine their breast reduction with liposuction of the waist, back or flanks to further fine-tune their figures. This may be an especially good option for women who have lost a significant amount of weight and wish to accentuate their weight loss success. Many women include breast reduction as part of their mommy makeovers.
Your Breast Reduction Surgery
A breast reduction procedure is usually performed under general anesthesia. Dr. Basu will make the appropriate incisions for your breast reduction and remove excess skin and breast tissue. He will ensure that your nipples are properly positioned in a natural central location on your new breasts, resizing the areolas if needed. Incisions are closed carefully for optimal healing.
Your Recovery & Results
Following a breast reduction surgery, you will need to rest for several days to allow your body to heal. Dr. Basu may ask you to wear a special post-surgical bra to provide support for your breasts and minimize swelling. You should avoid lifting heavy objects or exercising strenuously for several weeks after surgery. Most women can see their final results within 6 months of their breast reduction.
