Benefits of Breast Augmentation
Breast augmentation is the surgical placement of breast implants to increase breast volume or restore breast symmetry. It is a powerful tool that may improve a woman’s appearance and sense of self-confidence. Augmentation can be performed in women with small breasts to create better body proportions. Asymmetrical breasts can also be made to look more even through augmentation.
The shape and projection of a woman’s breasts change over time, as a result of aging, weight fluctuations, pregnancy and nursing. The breasts may appear deflated or lose their youthful shape. Breast augmentation is often performed as part of a Mommy Makeover to address the major changes that occur in women’s bodies after their childbearing years.
In some cases, breast augmentation is combined with additional procedures like a breast lift when the position of the nipple and breast tissue needs to be improved. Augmentation adds more volume to the breasts while a breast lift restores a more youthful position.
Our team understands that every woman is different. That’s why we focus on providing an individualized approach toward breast augmentation.
- Breast Implants – Breast implants are the most common way to achieve augmentation. Both saline and silicone-gel implants are available from our practice. We have a wide range of different profiles and sizes to make sure you get the look that’s right for you. Our surgeons make beautiful results a priority, and carefully choose incision placement with an eye toward this goal.
- Fat Transfer Augmentation – A newer technique for breast augmentation, fat transfer breast enlargement uses fat cells from your own body to enhance the appearance of your breasts.
- Revision Breast Augmentation – Not every breast augmentation turns out the way a patient might have hoped. Some women feel disappointed in the results of a former surgery that didn’t deliver a satisfactory outcome. Breast implant revision can restore a beautiful, natural look to your breasts. Revision surgery can also be performed to increase or decrease the size of your implants.
Recovery and Results
Most of our Texas breast augmentation patients experience some initial discomfort like swelling and bruising immediately after a breast augmentation. You will notice a change in the appearance of your breasts immediately. As swelling continues to dissipate over the coming weeks, your final results will be revealed. Most patients can return to work in a week or two.
