Breast Surgery in Houston, TX
It can be difficult to feel good and exhibit confidence when you’re unhappy with your body. Breast surgery is a common procedure, done to resolve a number of different issues concerning the breasts. Dr. Christopher Hankins performs breast enhancement surgeries on residents in Houston, Pearland, Lake Jackson and the surrounding areas of South Houston.
If you’re dealing with excessively large breasts, they may sag and pull down on your muscles, causing neck, back and shoulder pain. Affected patients often complain of digging of the bra straps into their shoulders, and irritation of the skin below the breasts due to co-optation of the breast to the skin wall and entrapment of moisture. Breast reduction results in elimination of these symptoms. Augmentation helps with breasts that are too small and make you feel less shapely or less feminine. Lost breast volume can leave you with sagging, droopy breasts that you don’t feel good about, no matter which bra you put them in. Dr. Hankins can consult with you to determine the best breast surgery procedure to address your concerns.
What Breast Surgical Procedure is Best for Me?
Aesthetic breast surgery can include breast enlargement, breast lift (mastopexy), breast lift and enlargement (augmentation mastopexy) or correction of enlarged male breasts (gynecomastia).
In contrast, breast reduction is not considered aesthetic and is oftentimes covered by insurance. However, the objective of this operation is not only to reduce the size of the breasts but to also to make them beautiful and proportionate to the patient.
We have had patients come to our practice where another plastic surgeon has told them that in order to have a breast lift done at the time of the breast reduction, they would have to pay an additional fee as high as $2000. There should be no additional charge as the breast if lifted at the time of the procedure.
Dr. Hankins will meet with you for an initial discussion prior to your procedure. He’ll discuss with you the best course of treatment to help you achieve the goals you’re trying to meet with any breast surgery you may be considering.
