Breast Augmentation in Katy, TX
Breast augmentation uses implants to enhance the size of the breasts, adjust balance and contour and restore volume and shape after pregnancy, weight fluctuation or breast reconstruction. If you are a woman who is not satisfied with the size of your breasts and would like to enhance them, Signature Plastic Surgery offers breast augmentation in Katy, TX.
Breast augmentation, also called augmentation mammoplasty, is one of the most common plastic surgeries performed at Signature Plastic Surgery. If you want to improve the balance and shape of your figure and if you are in good health and have realistic expectations, then you are a good candidate for Breast Augmentation in Katy, TX. Prior to surgery, a comprehensive consultation will be performed by Signature Plastic Surgery to choose the type of implants and decide on placement of the incision.
Choice of implant depends on the desired result. Implants come in different shapes and sizes and are filled with either saline or silicone. Different types of implants have different qualities, so they are chosen based on desired outcome and individual physical characteristics. Dr. David Stapenhorst creates a pocket for the implant by making an incision either beneath the breast, in the armpit area, or around the areola. Sensitivity in erogenous zones is maintained, and breastfeeding is still possible after breast augmentation.
The surgery is done under general anesthesia, and complications or side effects are rare. Discomfort is minimal and managed with medication, and most women can return to normal activities within a few days. If you desire a more attractive shape with enhanced contours, call Signature Plastic Surgery today and discover how breast augmentation in Katy, TX can improve your body image and self-confidence.
How Long Is The Recovery After Breast Augmentation?
Following the breast augmentation procedures, patients can expect their breasts to be tender or swollen for up to a week after surgery. It is recommended that women take one to two weeks off of work or school in order to aid the recovery. The first few days should be limited to minor activity and plenty of rest. Results can usually be seen after the first month and will continue to improve as the breasts heal. Dr. Stapenhorst can provide a prescription for pain management medication to help alleviate any discomfort. During your consultation and following the procedure, Dr. Stapenhorst will advise of any additional guidelines or recommendations you may need to follow.
