At the Plastic Surgery Center of Dallas, we know that many women who have smaller or uneven breasts are often interested in finding out how plastic surgery can help them achieve a more desirable appearance to the chest. Breast augmentation continues to be one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries performed on the body today, and is a great way for a woman to improve their appearance and self-esteem. Below are just a few of the more commonly asked questions that are heard from Dr. Rachel Walker in Dallas, TX:
What is breast augmentation?
Breast augmentation is the placement of breast implants into the chest to add volume and size to one or both breasts.
What types of implants are available?
There are several varieties of implants available on the market today, though silicone and saline implants are the most popular. These implants also come in different shapes to achieve different contours to the breasts. This allows women to completely customize the final results based on the implant they choose.
Will my breasts look natural?
Having a natural finished appearance is important to Dr. Rachel Walker. She helps patients choose the right sized and type implant for the desired final results. With implants that work with the patient’s body frame and contours, the improvements made with implants will look completely natural.
How long does recovery take?
The recovery process takes time and patients should closely follow their aftercare instructions to reduce their risk of complications, including that of infection along the incision lines. Patients will often take time off of work, school, and other social activities until they are more comfortable. Over-the-counter pain medications or prescription medications may be used to address pain during the first few days and weeks.
