What to Expect

Before, During, and After Your Breast Reduction in Houston

1. Attend a One-on-One Consultation.

Prior to getting a breast reduction Houston patients will first meet with a physician for a one-on-one consultation. We take the time to get to know you—your goals, medical history, breast shape and severity of sagging, current nipple orientation, and more.

2. Review Your Treatment Plan.

Houston breast reduction experts Dr. Downey and Dr. Bullocks collaborate on every patient case to best advise you on the best breast lift approach for your unique needs: lollipop lift, anchor lift, or even liposuction. We build a highly personalized treatment plan that may include a combination of other surgical procedures, such as breast augmentation or breast lift, to achieve the best possible results.

3. Make Your Decision.

At Heights Plastic Surgery, our mission is to give you the information you need to decide what will work best for your desires, timeline, and budget. After we make recommendations, we give you the space and time to make your own decision

4. Schedule Your Breast Reduction.

We will schedule your breast reduction—an outpatient procedure performed in our private, on-site surgery center—for a day and time that works best for you. You'll want to factor in about 1 to 2 weeks of downtime from everyday activities and work after your procedure.

5. Arrive for Surgery.

We will provide you with all of the ways you can best prepare for the procedure well in advance of your breast reduction in Houston. When you arrive, we will escort you to our state-of-the-art surgical suite, and review our process in detail once more.

6. Getting Your Breast Reduction.

Your highly skilled HPS surgeon will be in the operating room from start to finish, executing every detail of your agreed-upon plan for your breast reduction. Make sure you plan to have a plan for getting home after your procedure, as you will not be able to drive yourself.

7. Follow Up.

When you book your breast reduction in Houston at Heights Plastic Surgery, we will also book you for follow-up visits to meet with your surgeon to monitor your healing. This important step ensures you are healing properly, safely, and efficiently.
