A breast reduction, or reduction mammoplasty, is a cosmetic surgery that improves the patient’s breast contours by making the breasts lighter and smaller. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ameen Habash performs breast reduction surgery for patients in Southlake who want to achieve a breast size that complements their frame and lifestyle.
What Does a Breast Reduction Do?
Breast reduction surgery allows Dr. Habash to remove excess glandular tissue, fat, and skin to decrease the size of the breasts. This surgery can bring the breasts into proportion with the patient’s body, relieve discomfort associated with large breasts, and help the patient feel more confident.
Women with excessively large breasts often suffer emotionally and physically. Self-consciousness due to large breasts can cause high levels of emotional distress and a negative body image. Back pain, neck pain, and headaches are common and can interfere with daily life. Additionally, large, heavy breasts can make it difficult or painful for women to do many physical activities. Reducing the size and weight of the breasts can be life-changing by alleviating these conditions.
Am I a Candidate for Breast Reduction?
Ideal candidates feel insecure and self-conscious about their oversized breasts. Patients who feel physical pain and discomfort due to their breast size are also excellent candidates for a breast reduction.
Breast reduction surgery is appropriate for healthy patients with no post-surgery healing issues. Smokers are not ideal candidates and must quit before the date of their procedure. This will help to reduce the chance of surgical and post-surgical complications.
Dr. Habash can accurately determine your candidacy for breast reduction surgery in a consultation. Dr. Habash will listen to your concerns about your breast size. He will ask you about your medical history and your desired outcome for the surgery. He will also perform an exam to assess the breast tissue and your body structure. Other lab tests and a mammogram may also be required.
Dr. Habash will then develop the best procedure plan to achieve your goals. He will discuss each stage of the surgical plan with you, including details such as preparation, the surgical session, and recovery. He will also show you photos of previous results. Please feel free to ask any questions so that Dr. Habash can address them in detail.
Breast Reduction Procedure
Breast reduction surgery begins with intravenous sedation or general anesthesia, depending on what you and Dr. Habash determine is the best option for you. Once the medication has taken effect, Dr. Habash will make the necessary incisions to access the breast tissue.
Dr. Habash will then remove excess tissue, create an aesthetic breast shape, and adjust the position of the nipple. If necessary, he can reduce the size of the areola to best complement your new breast size.
Once all modifications are complete, Dr. Habash will suture the breast tissue to secure the new breast shape. He will then bandage the area and provide detailed aftercare instructions.

What to Expect After Breast Reduction
Dr. Habash will advise you on how to care for the treatment area and whether any medications are needed to aid your recovery process. A surgical bra may be recommended to protect and support the breasts as they heal. A tiny tube called a drain may be inserted in the breast area to prevent fluid buildup while healing.
You may experience temporary pain, bruising, and swelling. Physical activities, especially those affecting the breast area, are not allowed during recovery.
Rest is key to recovery, so plan to take some time away from work and your normal routine. Dr. Habash will monitor your healing progress and approve increased activity accordingly. Most patients can return to work and light activities after a week.
While you will likely be able to resume most activities after about a month, it can take additional time for the breasts to fully heal. Over two to three months, swelling will naturally dissipate, and your breasts will settle into their final shape.
Breast Reduction Results
Dr. Habash’s patients often report a dramatically improved quality of life after reduction mammoplasty. Full results can be seen after all swelling has disappeared. Relief of physical pain and a greater sense of comfort and confidence are common once healing is complete.
How Much Does Breast Reduction Cost?
The price of breast reduction surgery depends on the complexity of your case and whether the surgery is combined with an additional procedure. Dr. Habash will review all costs associated with your breast reduction prior to scheduling the procedure. He will advise you to contact your insurance provider, since this procedure is typically covered.
