Breast Enlargement Houston and Breast Augmentation Houston
Breast augmentation (enlargement) can enhance your appearance and boost your self-confidence, enlarging your breasts and making them more proportional with the rest of your body. Performed in Houston, TX; breast augmentation can also be used to correct a small amount of breast sag which can occur after pregnancy and breast-feeding.
There are many choices and options in breast augmentation, which require careful planning to individualize which is the best option for you. All of these choices have advantages and disadvantages, which you should understand before you make a decision.
Implants are placed either behind the breast tissue or under the muscle on the chest wall (pectoralis muscle) through an incision either under the areola or in the crease under the breast. Breast implants placed underneath the muscle have a more natural shape, a lower chance of capsular contracture (hardening), and it is easier for mammography. However, if you do a lot of upper limb gym work then implants are best placed under the breast. It is important to understand that minor differences in the size and shape of your breasts will not change and may even be more obvious after the surgery.
The type of breast implant utilized is determined at the time of the consultation. Dr. Dora will suggest the best alternative for your specific needs.
