Enhance Appearance with Breast Augmentation Surgery

Breast Augmentation in San Antonio, TX

The size and appearance of your natural breasts do not always live up to your expectations and desires. Breast augmentation is a cosmetic procedure that increases the volume and shapeliness of your breasts with implants.

Breast augmentation allows women to gain comfort and confidence in their physical appearance by attaining beautifully contoured breasts to show off under the San Antonio sun.

Am I a Candidate for Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation is performed for women who are displeased with their naturally small breasts or are looking to revamp their bust after pregnancy, weight fluctuations, or the natural aging process.

Ideal candidates for breast augmentation do not smoke, are in good overall health, and have realistic expectations for their results. Women interested in saline implants, with occasional exceptions, should be over the age of 18, and women considering silicone implants must be over 22.

How Is Breast Augmentation Performed?

When undergoing breast augmentation, women have a choice between saline and silicone implants. This choice will affect the cosmetic outcome of your breast augmentation, and all options will be discussed with our physicians during your consultation.

What Are the Steps Involved in Breast Augmentation?

  1. Anesthesia: Your breast augmentation will be performed under intravenous sedation or general anesthesia.
  2. Incisions: Breast augmentation incisions can be made in one of three locations. Your incision options include:
    • Periareolar: Along the edge of the areola
    • Inframammary: Along the breast crease
    • Transaxillary: In the armpit
  3. Placement: The implant is inserted beneath the breast tissue or under the tissue and the pectoral muscle.
  4. Closing the incisions: The breast tissue is repaired with layered sutures before sutures, skin adhesive tape, or surgical tape closes the skin.

What Is the Recovery From Breast Augmentation Like?

After undergoing breast augmentation, it is common to experience some pain, swelling, and bruising.

Your breasts may be wrapped in a compression dressing to help promote blood circulation and reduce swelling. You will be prescribed medication to help ease the pain and are recommended to take several days to rest. Your surgeon will provide you with instructions on how to take care of your incisions.

Most patients return to work within a few days and all activities within six weeks.

What Results Can I Expect After Breast Augmentation?

While you will notice additional volume immediately, it may take a couple of weeks before the swelling subsides, and your final results are apparent. It is essential to follow our physician’s instructions on how to take care of your new breasts to get the best results.
