Breast Augmentation Houston
Breast augmentation is a common cosmetic procedure. The purpose of this surgery is to enlarge breast size. A breast augmentation can give the patient more proportional breasts and make up for volume loss from pregnancy or weight changes.
There are multiple factors that can influence how your operation is performed. Your breast augmentation will be unique and customized to help you achieve your aesthetic goals. Dr. Ikeda will go over all the possible options during your breast-augmentation consultation.
Ways That Your Breast Augmentation Will Be Customized
There are multiple types of ways that a breast augmentation can be customized to specifically meet your needs:
- Placement: The implant can be placed underneath the breast glandular tissue or underneath the muscle tissue.
- Incision site: Potential incision locations include under the breast, around the areola, or in the armpit .
- Implant shape: The implant can be round or anatomic.
- Implant type: The implant shell can be filled with saline or silicone.
Choosing the Right Implant Size for You
The size of your breasts depends on your specific goals. We strategically pick the implant that would be proportional to your body measurements. If you pick an implant that is too narrow, it will look unnatural. Putting in an implant that is too large can also create aesthetic problems.
Once you and our medical professionals decide on an appropriate size, you can choose between a high-profile, mid-profile, or low-profile implant. This entails how far your breast sits from your chest wall.
At the end of the day, your implant size is your personal decision. We will have our input, but the final size is your choice. Keep in mind that if an implant is too large, it can cause issues in the future.
What Is the Recovery Period Like?
Recovery is relatively short, and patients can typically return to work a few days after the procedure. Our patients can return home the same day with minimal pain. We will also prescribe medication to ensure maximum comfort.
Bandages will be in place for a few days after your surgery and can then be removed. A special post-surgical supportive bra needs to be worn for a few weeks. In addition, your breasts will feel tight in the beginning.
Following your procedure:
- Do not lift anything heavy for two or three weeks.
- Avoid intense exercise involving your chest muscles or repetitive movements for a few weeks.
Do not run or jog for a few weeks.
- Wear supportive bras that do not have underwire.
