Breast Procedures

Conveniently located to serve Houston

Breast procedures in Houston aim to improve the appearance, size, and/or shape of the breasts. Pregnancy, aging, and weight fluctuations can all affect the breasts, causing women to seek out these procedures. Breast surgeries are also popular for women who desire to enhance their breasts for various reasons, including improved body proportions and relief from physical discomfort.

Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation, also known as augmentation mammoplasty, is a procedure that involves enhancing the size and projection of the breasts. During the surgery, implants are placed to create new volume. Implants vary in terms of size, type, profile, texture, and size. Dr. Marcos will work with you to select the best breast implants for your aesthetic goals.

Breast augmentation can greatly enhance the aesthetics of the breasts to complement the curves of the body. This procedure is ideal for women who wish to increase the size of their breasts, improve size symmetry, or restore lost volume after pregnancy or weight loss.

Breast Lift

A breast lift, also known as a mastopexy, is a surgical procedure focused on lifting and reshaping sagging breasts to a higher position on the chest wall. The procedure is suitable for women who experience sagging breasts due to aging, pregnancy, or weight loss.

Mastopexy surgery can make the breasts look perkier and more youthful, and it can also correct breast shape asymmetry. In certain cases, the areolae may be repositioned and resized for optimal results.

Breast Reduction

Breast reduction involves removing excess glandular breast tissue, fat, and skin to reduce the size of the breasts. The procedure is ideal for women who experience physical discomfort, pain, or health problems due to the weight and size of their breasts. Breast reduction can improve posture and can relieve chronic back, neck, and shoulder pain.

Your Consultation

To create a personalized surgical plan for you, you will need to attend a one-on-one consultation. During the consultation, you will talk to Dr. Marcos about your goals for your breast procedure. A physical examination of your breasts will then be performed. Measurements and photographs may be taken to develop the best course of action.

A review of your medical history will be conducted to assess risk factors based on your overall health, underlying conditions, current medications, allergies, and past procedures. You will be given instructions on how to prepare for your surgery, along with recovery directions. Feel free to ask any questions you may have at this time.
