Breast Augmentation Houston
Breast shapes vary and their appearance is influenced by symmetry, spinal curvature, and chest wall bony architecture. The concept to increase the appearance of the breast is referred to as a breast augmentation which encompasses using implants (saline or silicone) and/or fat transfer (grafting). During your consultation with our surgeon, we aim to address your goals for the procedure and match your realistic expectation from the procedure.
Your Results Will Depend On:
- Overall health
- Chest structure
- Breast or nipple shape and position
- Skin texture
- Healing capabilities
- Prior surgery, type and size of implant.
Implants alone may not adequately lift the breast, or correct the effects of pregnancy, weight loss, or skin stretching. You may need additional procedures, such as a breast lift, during your breast augmentation to achieve your the desired outcome.
There are different approaches to the breast augmentation procedure. Incision locations include the inframammary (under the fold of the breast), peri-areolar (around the areola), and trans-axillary (through the armpit). Our personal experience favors the inframammary incision, although each approach has its advantages. The placement of implants or fat grafting injections can be above or below the muscle. The exact location will be chosen during your consultation visit.
