Breast augmentation is an effective procedure for women who are dissatisfied with the size of their breasts. This condition may result due to heredity, loss of breast volume after pregnancy, or in some cases, it may be necessary following a mastectomy. Dr. Bradley Hubbard is a dedicated plastic surgeon in Dallas that can perform the breast augmentation procedure. He will assess a patient’s health condition and aesthetic needs before recommending the appropriate size and type of breast implants.
Breast Implant Size
Breast implant size should be chosen in proportion to the rest of the body. Both saline and silicone implants are approved by the FDA, and Dr. Hubbard will advise the pros and cons of both types of implants before going ahead with breast implant cosmetic surgery in Dallas. A customized treatment plan will be created, depending on the physical features and unique aesthetic needs of a patient.
As an experienced cosmetic surgeon in Dallas, Dr. Hubbard says that breast implant incision is usually placed under the breast crease. The other two options for an incision are the areola and the underarm. Dr. Hubbard will discuss the incision placement in advance with the patient, and make a decision keeping in mind the patient’s choices. Another key decision involved in breast implant plastic surgery in Dallas with Dr. Hubbard is the placement of implants.
Some plastic surgeons prefer to place the breast implant underneath the chest muscle. However, the final choice is with the patient, and some women may like to have the implant placed just below the breast tissue. The procedure is usually performed under general anesthesia, and will take about one hour. Drains are not placed in this procedure, and the surgeon uses dissolvable sutures which do not require removal later on. Most patients are able to return back to regular daily activity within a week to 10 days, but heavy lifting and strenuous activities should be avoided for about a month after the procedure.
