Breast Augmentation SouthlakeConveniently located to serve the areas of Dallas, North Dallas, Southlake and the mid-cities.
Breast augmentation is a cosmetic breast procedure that uses implants to enlarge the shape of the breasts. The procedure is designed to increase the size of small or underdeveloped breasts. It is also used to restore and enhance breast volume if it has decreased as a result of having children. Breast enhancement with implants is an incredibly popular plastic-surgery procedure.
Customizing Your Breast Augmentation
There is an array of options when discussing breast augmentation. These options include the type of implant used (silicone vs. saline), where the incision is placed (around the nipple, in the breast crease, or in the armpit), where the implant is placed (above or below the pectoralis muscle), and finally the size of the implant.
These options all affect the look and feel of a patient’s results. Customizing these allows us to tailor the operative plan to the patient, their body type, and their expectations and desires in order to achieve the best overall cosmetic results.
Ideal Candidates for Breast Augmentation
Breast augmentation is appropriate for patients who are not satisfied with the size, projection, and/or symmetry of their breasts. Patients with fully developed breasts are excellent candidates.
Candidates must be healthy with no pre-existing conditions that could affect healing. Candidates must not be pregnant or breastfeeding. Ideal candidates have realistic expectations.
To ensure that the patient’s preferences are clearly communicated, the patient must come in for a breast-augmentation consultation at our office. During this consultation, Dr. Habash discusses options with the patient, performs an examination, and goes over the patient’s complete medical history, including previous procedures performed and any allergies they may have.
Patients must disclose if they plan to become pregnant soon or are currently breastfeeding a child. Dr. Habash will show patients photos of the results of past procedures.
The breast augmentation surgery will be discussed in detail, including its recovery and potential fees. The patient can ask any questions they may have to Dr. Habash during the consultation.
Once all the specifics of the breast-augmentation procedure have been decided and a surgical plan has been created, a date can be set for the operation. Instructions may be given to prepare the patient for the breast augmentation surgery. This may include stopping smoking or changing certain medications before the procedure.
Breast Augmentation: What to Expect
In general, breast augmentation procedures will take around one hour, depending on the treatment plan. Breast augmentation with implants begins with the administration of anesthesia. Local anesthesia with sedation may be used, or general anesthesia may be used. Your options will be discussed during your consultation.
The chosen incisions will then be made, allowing Dr. Habash to create tissue pockets in which to house the implants. The implants are then inserted and positioned properly to create symmetry and an ideal appearance. Finally, the incisions are closed with the help of stitches and then dressed.
Once the Procedure Is Complete
After your breast enhancement is complete and you have returned home, your healing process will begin. You will need to stay home from work for around five to seven days and rest. It may be necessary to have someone help out around the house for the first few days of recovery.
As part of the recovery process, it will be important to wear a supportive surgical bra. This bra will not have underwire, as it would potentially damage the weakened tissues in the area during healing. Wearing this bra will help to control post-surgical swelling and bruising. Swelling will likely be present for around six to eight weeks.
For two to four weeks, you will not be able to participate in any physically taxing activities, including exercise and sports. These activities can cause trauma to the incisions and the operative area.
A follow-up appointment will be scheduled with Dr. Habash to monitor the progress of your recovery and assess the results of the surgery.
Breast Augmentation Cost
The cost of breast augmentation surgery will depend on the treatment plan. The techniques used, anesthesia administered, and implants can impact the overall price of the breast augmentation procedure. Insurance coverage will not be provided for cosmetic breast augmentation surgeries.
