Breast Enlargement / Augmentation

Breast augmentation is one of the most commonly performed types of cosmetic surgery. For women who feel they would be more confident if they had a larger breast size, augmentation is a good option. In this type of procedure, a small incision is made in the breast. A pocket is created in the breast, and a saline filled implant is inserted. The incision is usually placed underneath the breast, where it is virtually invisible. In very rare cases, the saline may leak in the breast, but in this event the solution is harmlessly absorbed by the body. After a breast enlargement surgery, the final results are evident within a few weeks. Initially, there is some additional swelling.

Most breast enlargement procedures take one to two hours and require local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia on its own. Most procedures today are outpatient procedures. Some women experience side effects after getting breast augmentation surgery. These side effects can include swelling, bruising, and temporary soreness. In addition, some patients report that the breast is extra sensitive to simulation for a few weeks after surgery. Women who require mammograms will need special techniques in order to be checked for breast cancer after breast augmentation surgery. If you have breast augmentation surgery and need a mammogram, be sure to tell your doctor that you’ve had the surgery.

In addition to these side effects, in some rare cases patients are exposed to risks with this type of surgery. In rare cases, patients may require additional surgery to replace or remove the implants due to problems with the implants. In some cases, implants may deflate, requiring the surgery to be redone. In some cases, the implants may make the breast feel hard or tight. In rare cases, infection or bleeding may occur. You can reduce the possibility of these risks by discussing the surgery thoroughly with your Dallas surgeon before the procedure. Your Dallas plastic surgeon may be able to tell you how to reduce these risks.

In most cases, patients return to work within one to two weeks after the surgery. Scars usually fade after several months.

There are many Dallas plastic surgeons who offer breast augmentation surgery. One of these professionals is Dr. David E. Morales. Dr. Morales graduated from Harvard Medical School in 1994 and is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. He is associated with the American Board of Plastic Surgery, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the Dallas Plastic Surgery Association, and the Texas Medical Association.
