Breast Augmentation Houston
One of the most common procedures performed at Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center in Houston Texas is Breast Augmentation, or Augmentation Mammoplasty. Some women feel that their breasts are too small for their bodies. Others want to restore breast volume that has been lost due to aging, weight loss, or pregnancy. Breast Augmentation in Houston may also be used to correct breast asymmetries, improve breast sagging, or reconstruct a breast following surgery for breast cancer. In some cases, Dr. Eisemann may also recommend a breast lift (mastopexy) at the same time as the breast augmentation surgery.
Breast implants are comprised of solid silicone shells that are filled with either saline or soft silicone gel. Implants are available in many sizes, shapes, profiles and textures. The newest implant available is the Cohesive Silicone Gel Implant, Some of the advantages of cohesive gel implants are their longevity and shape.Longevity, because they do not develop folds, and it is along folds that implants ultimately fail. These implants are form stable providing maximum differential lower pole projection of the implants to create a pleasing teardrop configuration of the breast. Special care is required during insertion to assure the implants do not rotate. A precise pocket is created beneath the pectoralis muscle corresponding to the base width and height of the implantThis variety allows Dr. Eisemann to achieve the most desirable breast augmentation results for different types of breast anatomy and body shape. During the initial consultation, Dr. Eisemann takes measurements of the chest and will discuss the available options with the patient, including type of implant, shape and size. He will help the patient choose the breast implant that will most suit their body type and that will allow for the most natural and aesthetically pleasing results.
In Breast Augmentation Surgery in Houston, there are three different incisions that may be used to place the implant behind the breast tissue and pectoral muscle. The incisions may be made either in the armpit (axillae), around the nipple (periareolar), or under the breast (inframammary). The axillary incision, made in the armpit, is beneficial in that it does not leave any scarring on the breast.
The inframammary incision is placed in the fold where the breast meets the chest wall. Scars may be hidden by the breast itself, as well as by undergarments and swimwear.
Finally the periareolar incision in breast augmentation surgery is placed at the border of the areola, which makes the scar less visible.
Once the appropriate incision has been made, the breast implant is placed beneath the existing breast tissue and beneath the pectoral muscle.
Dr. Eisemann most often performs Houston breast augmentation in his state of the art plastic surgery suite – which is fully accredited by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilites, Inc. Here patients are placed under intravenous sedation with regional intercostal block anesthesia. However, if a patient will be more comfortable under general anesthesia, she may choose to undergo breast augmentation surgery in a Houston-area hospital.
A typical Breast Augmentation Surgery in Houston takes between 60-90 minutes. Patients are generally released immediately following surgery. For 2 to 3 days after the surgery, patients may experience swelling and discomfort that can be easily controlled with oral pain medication. Limited activity is allowed right after surgery and most patients resume normal exercise after a few weeks. Breast displacement exercises are begun one week following surgery to reduce the chance of scarring and hardening of the breast by spherical capsular contracture.
