Breast Implants Dallas
Augmentation mammaplasty, more commonly known as breast augmentation, has been the leading cosmetic procedure at plastic surgery practices around the world and right here in Richardson, TX, for decades. Since the first breast implant surgery was performed in the early 1960s, breast augmentation, and other breast-related procedures have restored volume and shape to the breasts, balance to the figure and most importantly, confidence in millions of women.
The number of breast augmentations performed by board-certified plastic surgeons reached a whopping 286,000 in 2014, beating out the second most popular cosmetic procedure, rhinoplasty, by nearly 80,000 procedures. Decades of clinical studies and advances in surgical technology and technique have no doubt increased women’s interest in breast augmentation. The North Dallas and Richardson sections of the DFW area are certainly no exceptions, with many qualified and talented surgeons performing such procedures every day.
The Best Candidates for Breast Implants
When women opt to reshape and contour their breasts, they now have more implant options to choose from than ever. Women can choose from traditional saline and silicone implants from noted brands including Mentor and Natrelle (Allergan), as well as implants from emerging manufacturers like Sientra, to personalize their procedure and achieve their own ideal look.
While the artistically precise hand of a skillfully trained plastic surgeon is the most important component of any breast augmentation, the type of implant or materials used to augment the breasts are just as significant when creating a woman’s overall look. While the surgeon can safely augment the breasts with minimal scarring, the patient will only be under his or her treatment for a few months at most. A woman’s breast implants are with her forever; therefore, women who are interested in breast augmentation should educate themselves about the various types of implant options available to them prior to their initial consultation. This allows women to make informed and empowered decisions about the best implant option for their individual anatomy and desired outcome. This also allows the plastic surgeon to better assist the patient in creating her ideal look.
