Are you unhappy with the appearance of your breasts? Many women choose to undergo breast augmentation to improve breast symmetry, increase cup size, and restore a youthful appearance. There are some women who have the procedure to restore breast volume that was lost because of weight loss or pregnancy. Here at Plastic and Cosmetic Center of South Texas in San Antonio, TX, we are proud to provide this option to our patients and encourage you to learn more about it.
What are my Options?
At our office, you have a variety of options when it comes to breast implants. The two primary options are as follows:
Saline implants – Saline implants are filled with sterile salt water and create a uniform feel and size.
Silicone implants: These are filled with silicone gel. These implants feel more like natural breast tissue than saline implants
What to Expect
The procedure is administered with general anesthesia. During the procedure, a small and discreet opening will be made to form a pocket for the implant. Once the implants are placed, the openings will be sealed and bandaged. The procedure typically takes about two hours to complete.
You be given a support bra to wear during recovery, which will promote healing. Most women will be able to return to work one week after the procedure. You will probably be able to resume normal activities after two weeks, but strenuous activities should be avoided for roughly six weeks.
Am I a Good Candidate for Breast Augmentation?
Any woman seeking to enhance her bust with implants may well be eligible for breast augmentation. Ideal candidates also harbor realistic expectations about this procedure in terms of what it can accomplish.
