At our plastic surgery center in Austin, we perform different types of breast augmentation surgery as every person is different and has different desired outcomes. The surgery itself generally occurs several weeks after the initial consultation. Prior to the surgery, several important decisions must be made and it is important for the doctor and patient to have open lines of communication.

The Breast Augmentation Procedure

The best breast augmentation procedures achieve the exact results desired by the client. Breast augmentation is typically performed for a variety of reasons, including correction of asymmetrical breasts, restoration of breast fullness after pregnancy or advanced age, and breast enhancement.

A number of options are available regarding the selection of implants which allow you to customize the shape of your breasts. Customization is achieved with options pertaining to implant shape, size, material, texture, and placement. Several options are available regarding the incision site for your implants, as well. They include:

  • Through the armpit incision
  • Underneath the breast incision
  • Through the belly button (endoscopic procedure)
  • The lower half of the areola

It is important to discuss the best approach to the surgery with your breast surgeon.

Understanding the Risks of Breast Augmentation Surgery

Your surgeon will likely ask you to follow some specific instructions during the weeks prior to your surgery in order to ensure the best results with your procedure. It is also important to understand the risks associated with breast augmentation surgery. Although the risks are low, understanding them is still important.

The primary risks include:

  • If the surgical site is not properly cared for, infections may develop, but can be treated with antibiotics
  • Scar tissue may build up causing firmness around the breast implant. If the issue severe enough, surgery may be required to correct the problem.
  • A deflation of the implant is usually not harmful, but can necessitate another surgery to replace the implant

Breast augmentation surgery can take from between 1 to 5 hours. Having realistic expectations with the surgery is important. This will make it easy to know what to expect after breast augmentation surgery.
