What Is a Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation, also known as mammoplasty, is a cosmetic procedure that involves enhancing the bustline and increasing breast size by inserting saline- or silicone-filled implants. This procedure offers several benefits, including:

1. Increased fullness, volume, and projection of the breasts.
2. Improved and balanced symmetry of the bustline.
3. Boosted self-image and self-confidence in women.

At Advanced Plastic Surgery Centre, Dr. Joseph M. Perlman has dedicated over 25 years to helping women in the Houston region, including Spring and The Woodlands, address their concerns and achieve their aesthetic goals through breast augmentation. Through attentive listening and understanding of each patient’s unique needs, he has assisted thousands of patients in the Houston area and neighboring communities to attain the desired results from breast augmentation. If you are considering breast augmentation, schedule a consultation with Dr. Perlman to discuss your aspirations and explore the best approach for your specific requirements.

Breast Lift

If you are in overall good health and experiencing the following concerns, you may be a good candidate for breast augmentation:

1. Feeling embarrassed or frustrated by breasts that are too small.
2. Clothing fitting comfortably in the hips but being too large at the bustline.
3. Avoiding swimsuits or form-fitting tops due to perceived unflattering appearance.
4. Experiencing decreased size, volume, and firmness of the breasts after pregnancy.
5. Experiencing decreased size, volume, and firmness of the breasts due to weight fluctuations.
6. Having imbalanced breasts, with one significantly larger than the other.

If any of these concerns resonate with you, it’s essential to consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Joseph M. Perlman at Advanced Plastic Surgery Centre in Houston. During the consultation, Dr. Perlman will evaluate your individual needs and help determine if breast augmentation is the appropriate procedure to achieve your desired results.

How is Breast Augmentation Performed?

Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure typically performed under general anesthesia, lasting approximately one to two hours. Dr. Perlman will make a small incision in either the fold under the breast, the bottom edge of the areola, or the armpit, based on the patient’s individual shape and goals. The implants will then be carefully inserted either behind the natural breast tissue or beneath the chest wall muscles. After the procedure, the incisions are closed using sutures, skin adhesive, or surgical tape to promote proper healing.

How Do I Choose the Size of My Breast Implants?

Selecting the right type and size of breast implant is a highly personal decision, and Dr. Perlman understands this. During your consultation, he will explain the differences between various implant options and discuss what you can expect from each choice. Whether you desire a dramatic and voluptuous silhouette or a more subtle, natural-looking enhancement, Dr. Perlman will carefully assess your condition and understand your goals for breast augmentation. Taking into account your natural bustline and preferences, he will guide you in choosing the specific type of implant that will help you achieve the look and feel you desire.

How Do I Choose the Profile of My Breast Implants?

Implants come in various shapes for specific reasons, similar to natural breasts. There is no universal or standard shape that suits everyone in breast augmentation. Instead, achieving the most natural results involves selecting the best implant type for your unique body type. At The Advanced Plastic Surgery Centre, we offer a range of implant options, including smooth implants, textured implants, implants with different profiles (projection), volume adjustable implants, saline-filled, silicone gel-filled, and double-lumen saline/gel implants. Dr. Perlman will work closely with you during your consultation to determine the ideal implant shape that aligns with your individual goals and complements your natural contours.

High-Profile Implants

High-profile implants are specifically designed to create more projection or forward projection than moderate-profile or moderate-plus implants. When considering a 350 cc implant that is inflated to 380-400 cc, the projection can vary between 3.9 cm, 6.2 cm, or 6.9 cm, depending on the chosen implant type. For women with a narrow chest, high-profile implants can offer greater projection with a narrower base compared to moderate-profile implants. On the other hand, an anatomic (teardrop) implant can provide more projection in the lower portion of the breast. Dr. Perlman will discuss these options with you during your consultation to help you make an informed decision based on your desired results and unique body characteristics.

Which Breast Implants Are Right For Me?

When selecting the ideal implants for your breast augmentation, there are several factors to consider, and Dr. Perlman, being one of the most respected plastic surgeons in the Houston area, takes the time to follow up with his patients to ensure long-term satisfaction with their procedures. He will assess your individual body type and aesthetic preferences to help you make an informed decision on the best implant option for you.

At Advanced Plastic Surgery Centre, we offer both silicone and saline breast implants. While saline implants are filled with a sterile saltwater solution, silicone implants are filled with a synthetic gel. The majority of our breast augmentation patients, approximately 85%, choose silicone gel implants over saline implants. This preference is mainly due to the silicone implants providing a much softer and more natural feel, with less incidence of rippling.

Recovery Following Breast Augmentation

Following your breast augmentation surgery, you can expect to have surgical dressings covering your chest. It’s common to experience soreness and swelling in the area for several weeks, but this discomfort is manageable. Many patients can typically return to work about a week after the procedure.

Dr. Perlman will provide you with specific instructions regarding activities to avoid or limit during the recovery process. It’s crucial to adhere to these instructions diligently to achieve a faster recovery and optimal results. If you have any questions or concerns during your recovery, our skilled and friendly staff at Advanced Plastic Surgery Centre will be happy to assist you. We are deeply invested in each patient’s procedure and results, and we closely follow your progress and provide support every step of the way, whether you reside in Spring, Houston, The Woodlands, or other nearby communities.

Can I See Breast Augmentation Before and After Photos?

Reviewing breast augmentation before and after photos can be an excellent way to help you decide on the look you prefer for your procedure. By looking at photographs of other women’s breast augmentation results, you can get a better idea of the potential outcomes and discuss your preferences with Dr. Perlman based on the photos you’ve seen. This can be a valuable tool during your consultation to ensure that you and Dr. Perlman are on the same page about your desired aesthetic goals.

How Much Does Breast Augmentation Cost?

The cost of breast augmentation can vary depending on several factors, including the type of implant used and individual patient needs. For detailed information about the cost of breast augmentation and to discuss your options, please reach out to the friendly staff at the Advanced Plastic Surgery Centre. They will be more than happy to provide you with all the necessary details, including expenses and payment terms. Dr. Perlman also offers flexible financing options to accommodate his patients’ needs.

What Are Cohesive Gel Silicone Implants And How Are They Different From Saline Implants?

The introduction of cohesive silicone implants approved by the FDA has provided patients with new options to achieve their desired breast appearance. Unlike traditional silicone implants, cohesive gel silicone implants are made of a solid material that cannot leak. This addresses the concerns associated with shell rupture and silicone leakage. Additionally, cohesive gel implants offer a more natural feel, closely resembling the texture of natural breast tissue. This advancement in technology has improved the safety and aesthetics of breast augmentation procedures, giving patients more confidence in their choices.

Three Breast Augmentation Benefits

Added Volume and Curves

Absolutely! Breast augmentation is an excellent option for women who have naturally small or flat breasts and wish to enhance their curves and overall silhouette. By adding volume to the breasts, breast implants can create a more voluptuous and feminine appearance, boosting a woman’s self-confidence and satisfaction with her body. Whether the goal is to achieve a specific cup size, enhance the appearance in swimwear, or simply feel more comfortable and confident in everyday clothing, breast augmentation can help achieve the desired look and provide a significant improvement in body image. It’s a personal and transformative procedure that allows women to feel more confident and content with their bodies.

Even Out Naturally Asymmetrical Breasts

Absolutely, breast asymmetry is a common and natural occurrence, but for some women, the difference in breast sizes can be quite noticeable and may lead to feelings of self-consciousness and difficulty finding well-fitting bras and clothing. Breast augmentation is an effective solution for balancing out naturally uneven breasts. With the ability to choose different implant sizes, shapes, and profiles for each breast, a skilled plastic surgeon can create a symmetrical and harmonious appearance, addressing the asymmetry and giving women breasts that are more evenly matched.

By customizing the implant selection to each breast, the surgeon can achieve a balanced and proportionate look, allowing women to feel more comfortable and confident in their clothing choices. Whether it’s about filling out a bra more evenly or achieving a more harmonious appearance in swimwear and clothing, breast augmentation can help women achieve the symmetry they desire and enhance their overall body confidence. It’s a tailored approach that takes into account each woman’s unique anatomy and aesthetic goals, leading to a more balanced and aesthetically pleasing result.

Men are also covered

Absolutely, pregnancy, breastfeeding, and the natural aging process can lead to changes in the breasts, including loss of volume and sagging. Many women desire to regain a more youthful and uplifted appearance, and a breast augmentation can be an excellent solution for restoring lost volume and achieving perkier breasts.

During a breast augmentation procedure, silicone or saline implants are used to increase the size and fullness of the breasts. The implants can be customized in terms of size, shape, and profile to meet each woman’s individual goals and desired outcome. Whether it’s to restore lost volume, improve breast symmetry, or achieve a more youthful contour, breast augmentation can enhance the appearance of the breasts and boost a woman’s self-confidence.

The procedure is popular among mothers who want to address the changes in their breasts after childbirth and breastfeeding. However, it is essential to wait until after completing breastfeeding and allowing the breasts to return to their baseline state before considering breast augmentation. This ensures that the results of the procedure are more stable and predictable.

Ultimately, breast augmentation offers women the opportunity to enhance their breasts and achieve the look they desire, helping them feel more confident and comfortable in their bodies. It is a personalized and transformative procedure that can provide long-lasting satisfaction for women seeking to restore their breast’s youthful appearance and volume.
