ABOUT BREAST AUGMENTATION

Breast enhancement surgery is a treatment that reshapes the breasts for a fuller appearance. It is known as one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries, giving women who are unhappy with their breast appearance numerous options for improvement. Using breast implants or fat grafting, this cosmetic treatment improves breast size and shape, and produces a beautiful and a balanced outcome. Houston, TX Cosmetic Surgeon, Dr. Anthony Nikko, is highly-trained to provide this procedure and performs many breast augmentations year-round. During your consultation at the Nikko Cosmetic Surgery Center, we will address your concerns and goals and provide you with all of the options available, as well as tailor a surgical plan to achieve your goals.

IDEAL CANDIDATES

When you are in the consultation, the correct implant will be chosen based on your body frame as well as your aesthetic goals. Breast implants come in varying sizes and shapes — each of which are taken into consideration in order to achieve the desired result. Today, the most commonly chosen breast implants are saline or silicone, both widely chosen and approved and safe to use per the FDA. It is important to mention that candidates considering saline breast implants must be 18 years of age, while in order to receive surgery with silicone patients must be 22 years of age. Two other types of augmentations include Gummy bear implants, as well as an autologous approach through fat grafting. Aside from the type of augmentation chosen, there are other notable factors to consider:

ABOUT BREAST IMPLANTS

When you are in the consultation, the correct implant will be chosen based on your body frame as well as your aesthetic goals. Breast implants come in varying sizes and shapes — each of which are taken into consideration in order to achieve the desired result. Today, the most commonly chosen breast implants are saline or silicone, both widely chosen and approved and safe to use per the FDA. It is important to mention that candidates considering saline breast implants must be 18 years of age, while in order to receive surgery with silicone patients must be 22 years of age. Two other types of augmentations include Gummy bear implants, as well as an autologous approach through fat grafting. Aside from the type of augmentation chosen, there are other notable factors to consider:

Size

Implant size is chosen based on the number of CCs of silcone or saline used. To determine the correct amount, we decipher how much original tissue exists, as well as the size you wish to attain. During surgery, it is normal to place multiple implants to get an idea on the better fit.

Shape

Breast implants are produced in either a round or teardrop shape. Both shapes are commonly used, however, the majority of our patients prefer a round shape. It often tends to appear more natural and adds fullness to the top portion of the breast that most patients want.

Profile

Breast implant profile references the projection. Meaning, this is what you see from the side view. The most common projections include a profile that ranges from low to extra high.

While these options may seem overwhelming, picking the right implant is actually quite easy once the objectives are discussed during the private meeting. These considerations, blended with surgeon knowledge, makes certain the right outcome is achieved.

PROCEDURE TECHNIQUES

Incision type, as well as implant location, are also aspects that will need to be made prior to surgery. During breast augmentation, an incision is made and then the chosen implant will be slipped into its position. A couple of methods are applied for implant placement. These include either submuscular placement(under the pec muscle), or submammary-subglandular placement(over the pec muscle). The choice as to where to place the implant, as well as incision location, is based on numerous factors. This includes the size and type of implant, as well as input from the surgeon. Regardless of incision type, scarring is rare. Implant placement is determined based on body type, implant size, and lifestyle.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Cosmetic breast surgery is performed as an outpatient surgery using general anesthesia. After completing the incision, the breast implant will be placed through the incision and placed into a surgically created pocket, and then fitted into its proper position. Following the placement of the implant, the incision is sealed with sutures or surgical adhesives. All patients will be taken into our recovery area and observed before being released. Patients will be sent home wearing a medical sports bra to assist with swelling. Within a few days, the swollen feeling will start to dissipate and the breasts will begin to feel normal as they get used to their new position. The majority of patients can resume normal activities within several days, however, exercise should be avoided for about 6 – 8 weeks. This surgery produces beautiful natural outcomes and is oftentimes life-changing for so many individuals, allowing them the chance to feel more confident.
