What is Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation is a technique designed to enhance your breasts with implants, creating a natural profile that expands and lifts at the same time.

People often confuse Breast Augmentation with breast implant. The breast implant is the synthetic part, which is used to improve the shape of breasts. Breast Augmentation is a surgical process using breast implants which are inserted into the body to enhance the size and shape of the breasts. With the effects of aging, gravity, pregnancy, etc. women go through a lot of changes in their breast’s shape and size throughout their lifetime. Breast augmentation was developed in order to repair or enhance the shape and size of your breasts.

Here are some of the reasons why a person should consider Breast Augmentation:

  • Breast Reconstruction: After breast cancer, reconstruction will give a more natural appearance than a prosthesis
  • Loss of Shape After Childbirth: In order to get the original shape of the breasts back with a natural profile.
  • Uneven Breasts: Your breasts do not look identical in shape, size, or orientation.
  • Disproportion: If your breasts are too big or too small for your body frame.

What happens during Breast Augmentation?

People are often cautious of breast augmentation because they are not aware of what the procedure entails. This procedure has been performed safely countless times by Board-Certified surgeons, Dr. Patel and Dr. Truong, here at Lift Plastic Surgery. The surgical procedure is simple:

The process involves the surgeon creating a pocket in the area where an incision was made. Once the pouch is created, the implants then get inserted through the opening. After the implants are inserted, the doctor will sit you up during surgery so they can check to ensure implants are looking symmetrical and even. When complete the surgeon will close the incision. After that, you are provided with a soft surgical bra of the perfect fit for your breast shape and size.

Does a breast augmentation hurt?

A Breast Augmentation in Houston is an invasive procedure and requires you to undergo anesthesia. You will not feel pain during the surgery, but you will be sore after the procedure is completed.

Breast augmentation is a procedure that generally takes one to two hours. There are possible risks associated with breast augmentation procedure, as with any surgery. Some of these risks include an adverse reaction to anesthetic medication, bleeding around the surgical area, infection or changes in sensation. The surgeons at Lift Plastic Surgery in Houston have years of experience ensuring their patients have a safe experience and will help you achieve the results you are looking for.

What are the implants used in Breast Augmentation?

The implants come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and textures, and are carefully chosen depending on your goals. Breast implants come in two general categories, saline, and silicone.

Both saline and silicone implants have been shown to be equally safe for placement by the FDA.

Saline: Saline implants are made of a flexible silicone shell (the same as for silicone implants) which the doctor fills to its desired size with sterile saline once they place the implants in your body. The advantages of saline implants include the ability to make a smaller incision in your skin, as well as easier detection when there’s a rupture. In the event of a rupture, the saline leaks out and gets absorbed by your body, and the implant collapses. The disadvantages include the fact that they have a less natural feel than silicone implants and tend to show more rippling, especially if you have minimal breast tissue.

Silicone: Silicone implants generally have a more natural look and feel, especially if you have thin breast tissue. However, they do require a slightly larger incision for placement. Additionally, imaging is generally required to detect a rupture since the silicone tends to keep its shape and isn’t absorbed by your body.

What is the recovery period after breast augmentation surgery?

You’re able to shower the day after your surgery, but must continue to wear a soft supportive bra without underwire at all other times for the first month following surgery. You will be able to speed up the recovery period with the help of these tips:

  • Always sleep upright and do not put force on your breasts after the surgery for at least 48 hours.
  • Avoid wearing clothes that are tight around the breast area. These clothes will put force on your breasts and can lead to swelling and pain.
  • Do not do any heavy lifting or strenuous activities for at least 4 to 6 weeks.
  • Avoid lifting weights for at least eight weeks.
  • After four weeks, you can change to a normal bra as long as your incisions are well healed.

When will I see results after my breast augmentation?

Immediately after surgery, your breast implants generally appear “high and tight.” This is because your tissues, especially the pectoralis muscle, need to stretch to accommodate the new implant. In one to three months, your shape rounds out as the swelling goes down and your implants drop and settle.

What is Breast Auto Augmentation?

Breast Augmentation Webster TX

If you want a breast lift without implants in Houston, the breast auto-augmentation technique is perfect for you. It can be used to aggressively reshape the patient’s own breast tissue and create the appearance of an augmented breast without actually using a breast implant.

It is often performed after massive weight loss due to the specific changes that occur in the breast. It is an excellent option for a patient who wants an augmented look, does not want breast implants, and would be content with their current breast size or slightly smaller. In many ways, it is similar to a traditional mastopexy, but the breast tissue is rearranged and sutured in an elaborate manner, and it is then secured directly to the tough tissue over the ribs to hold it in place. Because of this suture, there may be slightly more discomfort with this procedure than with a traditional breast lift. If you're interested in having this procedure done, Lift Plastic Surgery is the best choice. For other details of surgery and recovery, please refer to the mastopexy section of our website.
