Enhance Your Figure with
Women interested in changing the size and shape of their breasts can typically achieve their cosmetic goals with breast augmentation. The result is an enhancement to the size and shape of the breasts using either breast implants or fat grafting. Peter Fisher, MD, is a board-certified plastic surgeon with over 25 years of surgical experience helping women achieve their cosmetic goals with breast augmentation surgery from his practice in San Antonio, TX.
Breast augmentation is one of the safest and most popular cosmetic surgeries available today, having helped millions of women achieve the appearance of youthful breasts fit to their unique figures.
There are many different sizes and shapes of breast implants, and fat can be grafted to many parts of the breast to add volume and enhance the shape. Choosing an experienced surgeon like Dr. Fisher can ensure that you achieve satisfying and natural-looking breast augmentation results for years to come.
Breast Augmentation with Implants
Many patients choose to have their breast augmentation performed with implants, which can be used to provide a larger, more symmetrical shape. Patients can choose between saline, silicone, and cohesive gel silicone, commonly known as gummy bear implants. Implants can be round or teardrop-shaped, and come in many different sizes. Dr. Fisher can help you decide on the most appropriate implant for your body type and cosmetic goals.
Breast Augmentation with Fat Grafting
Women interested in a more natural approach to breast augmentation with the added benefits of liposuction from another area of the body may want to consider fat grafting to add volume to their breasts. Fat can typically be removed from the hips, thighs, or buttocks and used to enhance the breasts, creating a more full, symmetrical appearance.
There are two important surgical details that patients discuss with Dr. Fisher prior to undergoing surgery. The first is the incision, with the option to have an inframammary (below the crease of the breast), periareolar (along the underside of the areola), or transaxillary incision (through the armpit). Surgical site selection may be more appropriate for various types of implants, as some require more direct access to the breast tissue. The second detail is the placement site, which can either be beneath or in front of the pectoral muscle. Much like with the incision site, the placement site may be more or less appropriate for various types of implants. Dr. Fisher will explain your options thoroughly and help you determine the most appropriate technique to employ.
Plan for a Safe Recovery
Regardless of what surgical techniques are used, breast augmentation patients will require time to rest following their procedures. Immediately after surgery, wound dressings and compression garments will be applied, and patients will be given medication for pain. Many patients can return to non-strenuous work one week after their procedure, but will have to wait longer for exercise and more intense activities.
