What Are My Breast Augmentation Options?
You have several breast augmentation options to consider when planning your surgery. Breast augmentation is performed under general anesthesia.
What Kind of Breast Implants Will I Have?
Your breast implants are customized depending on your aesthetic desires and body frame.
Saline implants: Sterile saline is encased in a silicone shell. These implants are round in shape and smooth in texture.
Silicone implants: Silicone gel is encased in a silicone shell.
Round implants: Implants are spherical in shape and smooth in texture.
Anatomical implants: Implants have a narrower top and a broader base. These implants provide a more natural look because they are shaped like a natural breast.
Textured implants: Textured implants have a rough surface that attaches to the breast tissue to keep the implant in place. Textured implants are essential for anatomical implants since they cannot rotate in the breast pocket.
Smooth implants: Smooth implants have a soft surface, allowing them to move naturally in the breast pocket.
Most of Dr. Kronowitz’s patients prefer textured, anatomical silicone because of their natural-looking results.
Is There an Alternative to Breast Implants?
While breast implants are the most popular way to enhance breast volume and provide the most significant amount of breast enhancement, they are not the only way to increase breast fullness.
Fat transfer to the breasts is a multi-step procedure that uses liposuction to harvest fat cells from the abdomen, hips, thighs, or buttocks, and transfers that fat to the breasts to add natural volume.
This technique is ideal for younger women and women who are looking for a subtle and natural-looking increase in breast fullness.
Should I Combine My Breast Augmentation With a Breast Lift?
While some women choose breast augmentation to enlarge naturally small breasts, other women decide to undergo the procedure to replace the volume that was lost following pregnancy and nursing.
Combining breast augmentation with a breast lift allows women to restore volume and elevate the breasts to a youthful position on the chest.
What Is My Breast Augmentation Recovery?
Breast augmentation is an outpatient procedure, and you can return home within a few hours of your surgery.
The breasts may be wrapped in a compression garment or surgical bra. This garment will reduce swelling, promote circulation, protect the incisions, and ensure that the implants settle in the correct position.
Bruising, swelling, and some discomfort is expected following breast augmentation. You can ease this pain with prescribed, over-the-counter pain medication, or pain pumps.
Most women feel recovered enough to return to work after one week but should avoid strenuous activity for at least four to six weeks.
When Will I See My Breast Augmentation Results?
Your results can be seen immediately following your breast augmentation; however, as there will be bruising and swelling, your results will continue to adjust as the bruising and swelling dissipate, and the implants settle. Most women see their final results within a few months. These results are not expected to change, barring significant weight fluctuations or complications with the implants.
Breast implants are not designed to last forever. Women may eventually need to undergo breast revision to replace old or damaged implants.
How Much Does Breast Augmentation Cost in Houston, TX?
Breast augmentation is a highly customized procedure, and the final cost of your breast augmentation will vary depending on that personalization. The implants selected, the implant placement, the techniques used, the geographical location, and factors like anesthesia and facility fees all contribute to the final price.
At Kronowitz Plastic Surgery, breast augmentation starts at $5,550. You will be given a cost estimate once Dr. Kronowitz has developed your surgical plan.
