Breast Augmentation

Author: Dr. Michael Bogdan

Aging, childbearing, or simply Mother Nature may cause some women to feel dissatisfied with their breast size. Women in the local area have a reputation for being beautiful, feminine, and always well put-together. The Southern woman likes to look good, and part of that look is a fit, proportional physique. Breast augmentation has helped women from Fort Worth and Southlake, TX enhance their self-confidence and their lives by creating the curves they have always wanted.

Performing Breast Enlargement

Vectra XT 3DChoosing breast augmentation is a very personal decision, and your breast augmentation procedure also will be highly personalized. In order for your procedure to be specifically tailored to your unique needs and desires, many subsequent decisions must be addressed. One of the most common concerns that patients want answered is "What will I look like with a certain size implant?" Although photo galleries are useful for assessing a surgeon's skill and aesthetics, it may be difficult to find a patient that exactly matches your body type and desires. To address this issue, in his Southlake office, Dr. Bogdan utilizes 3 dimensional imaging to simulate operative outcomes on your own body.

Incision Placement Options

The first decision to be made is where to place the incision. There are many factors to be weighed when considering incision types, such as the degree of enlargement desired, your existing breast anatomy, your personal preference, and breast implant type. Dr. Bogdan always strives to minimize scarring, and will work with you to determine which incision method is right for your personal needs.

Breast Incision Choices
  • The inframammary approach is the most commonly utilized at Dr. Bogdan's breast enlargement practice. This small incision is made along the underside of the breast where it meets the chest wall, and is typically well-concealed in the fold beneath the breast. This incision method allows for the best access to the interior breast anatomy for optimal implant placement and adjustment.
  • For extremely discreet scars, the endoscopic approach utilizes a small incision in the armpit. This is a newer technique, and requires a highly skilled surgeon to place the implant with the assistance of an endoscope.
  • The periareolar incision is made around the bottom half of the areola, which is the dark circle of skin surrounding the nipple. This incision allows very direct access to the interior chest wall, and if performed properly, leaves little noticeable scarring. This incision site also may be utilized for subsequent breast surgeries if needed.

Implant Placement Options

After choosing the incision site, you and Dr. Bogdan will select the appropriate implant placement. Breast implants can be placed either beneath the pectoral muscle (submuscular) or over the pectoral muscle (subglandular). The choice of where to place the implant depends on a variety of factors, including the degree of augmentation desired, the type of implant selected, and your particular anatomy.

  • Submuscular placement is the more commonly used of the two methods for women undergoing breast enlargement in Dallas. Both saline and silicone gel implants are regularly inserted using this method, which tends to produce a more natural appearance for most body types. In addition, recent studies suggest that submuscular placement decreases the risk of capsular contracture, a complication in which excess scar tissue tightens around the implants. Due to the incision of the muscle tissue, this method may result in a longer recovery period with slightly more discomfort.
  • The subglandular method places the implant behind the breast tissue, but above the pectoral muscle. This method results in a more comfortable recovery, but may be more likely to interfere with mammograms. However, less tissue over the implant means that the implants are more visible, and may look less natural. Women with thin skin or very small breasts are not good candidates for this option.

In addition to deciding on incision location and implant placement, patients will need to select the type and size of implant that best suits their goals. Click here to learn more about choosing the right breast implants for your preferred outcome.
