Breast Plastic Surgery
Conveniently located to serve The Woodlands, Houston, and Shenandoah
Plastic surgery encompasses both cosmetic and reconstructive surgery.
Cosmetic surgery is performed to reshape normal structures of the body in order to improve the patient’s appearance and self-esteem. Cosmetic surgery is usually not covered by health insurance because it is elective.
Reconstructive surgery is performed on abnormal structures of the body, caused by congenital defects, developmental abnormalities, trauma, infection, tumors, or disease. It is generally performed to improve functions, but may also be done to approximate a normal appearance. Reconstructive surgery is generally covered by most health insurance policies, although coverage for specific procedures and levels of coverage may vary greatly.
There are a number of “gray areas” in coverage for plastic surgery that sometimes require special consideration by an insurance carrier. These areas usually involve surgical operations, which may be reconstructive or cosmetic, depending on each patient’s situation. For example, eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) – a procedure normally performed to achieve cosmetic improvement – may be covered if the eyelids are drooping severely and obscuring a patient’s vision.

Ideal Candidates for Breast Plastic Surgery
Patients in The Woodlands who are unsatisfied or uncomfortable with their breasts or chest area are ideal candidates for breast plastic surgery. Candidates must be in good overall health with no post-surgery healing issues. Candidates should also have realistic goals for breast procedures.
Breast plastic surgery is recommended for patients who are not pregnant or breastfeeding. Patients who are currently in a weight-loss or weight-gain plan should finish their weight plan before considering any breast procedure. Candidates should be committed to a full recovery process for safe and ideal results.
During your consultation in The Woodlands, we will listen to your concerns and goals. A physical examination and an evaluation of your medical history will be necessary before you are cleared for any breast plastic surgery procedure.
We will create a customized surgical plan according to your goals. We will discuss the details of the plan with you. The discussion will cover the preparation, surgery, recovery process, results, cost, and more.
You can ask questions any time during your consultation. Specific instructions will be given to prepare for your breast plastic surgery procedure. Once the consultation is complete, a date will be set for your surgery.
What to Expect
The duration of breast surgery will depend on the chosen breast procedure and the surgical plan. Anesthesia will be administered to prevent pain or discomfort during the surgery. Targeted incisions will be created, and then the necessary modifications will be made. Finally, the incisions will be closed and bandaged.
Before releasing the patient, recovery instructions will be provided, along with prescription medications to help the healing process. A supportive garment will be used to protect the chest and support the tissues during recovery, and time off from work will be required.
Cost of Breast Procedures
The cost of a breast procedure in The Woodlands varies, because it is a highly individualized surgery tailored for each patient. The overall price may include anesthesia, operating room facilities, new breast implants, and other related expenses. Additional tests and imaging may also add to your total.
