what is breast augmentation?
For patients in League City breast augmentation is a procedure where artificial implants or fat from other parts of the body are inserted into the breast tissue to produce a fuller, rounder breast appearance. Multiple different types of implants and incision locations may be used depending on the needs and preferences of the patient.
the difference between breast augmentation and breast lifts
Many women develop sagging breasts after weight loss or pregnancy. They often feel uncertain whether breast augmentation or a breast lift is the best approach. During breast augmentation League City plastic surgeon Dr. Sam Sukkar may place implants to give the breasts a perky shape and restore volume to the upper breast pole. However, patients who have significant breast sagging may require a breast lift. A breast lift, or mastopexy, removes the excess skin and tissues to elevate the breasts and areola to a more youthful, perky position. During a breast lift, Dr. Sukkar can place breast implants to increase upper pole volume and enhance breast projection. You can also have a breast lift without implants if desired.
breast augmentation with implants
Breast augmentation using implants offers a wide variety of size and texture options. Different types of implants produce different results in regards to both look and feel. Using well-crafted implants means that you can customize your outcome in specific ways.
breast augmentation via fat grafting
The fat grafting option for breast augmentation uses liposuction on another part of the body to transfer fat into the breasts. This means there will be no artificial material used which is preferable for some patients. Fat transfer procedures are typically performed by injecting the grafted fat into the breasts, which also means less or no scarring due to incisions.
what is a breast lift?
Also known as mastopexy, a breast lift involves removing excess skin to tighten and raise the breast tissue.
benefits of breast augmentation surgery

This procedure can:

breast augmentation candidates
You are likely a good candidate for breast augmentation surgery if you are in good physical and mental health, are at or close to your goal weight, and are ready to realize your full aesthetic potential.
consultation and preparation
At the consultation, we will discuss implant size, type, and incision placement, along with any other goals or questions. Your League City plastic surgeon will provide detailed preparation guidelines prior to surgery.
choosing an implant size
Many women choose to go up about 1.5 to 2 cup sizes. You may want to consider your weight, height, and frame, but ultimately it is your decision.
types of implants
There are several different types of implants to choose from, depending on preferred results.
silicone vs saline
Silicone implants provide the most realistic look and feel and are our most popular option. Saline implants are filled with liquid after implantation of a silicone shell which ultimately results in a smaller incision scar.
smooth vs textured
Choosing a smooth vs textured implant mostly depends on surgical factors rather than appearance, so Dr. Sukkar can make recommendations during a consultation.
teardrop vs round
While a round implant is the most common shape, teardrop implants can offer a slightly more natural-looking augmentation shape.
high, moderate, and low profile
The profile type produces a different level of projection or height away from the chest. Which option to choose can be decided by discussing your body proportions and breast goals.
the breast augmentation
Breast augmentation surgery is performed under general anesthesia. The procedure typically takes around an hour, with additional time added for a mastopexy.
breast implant incisions
Different incisions can be used to achieve different results. Dr. Sukkar can help you decide the best fit for you.
This incision is made near the armpit leaving virtually no scarring on the actual breasts.
The most common, inframammary incision is done underneath in the breast fold and typically allows for larger implant placement.
The areolar incision is a cut made in a half circle at the bottom of the areola where a scar can easily blend in.
trans-umbilical breast augmentation (tuba)
This method uses a small incision in the belly button, which leaves breasts completely free of any scarring.
results, recovery, and aftercare
After surgery, you will need to rest for 5-7 days, after which sutures will be removed, and you can generally resume most daily activities. Expect about 3 weeks before a full return to normal activity, including strenuous exercise. The team at the Clinic for Plastic Surgery is here to help answer any questions before surgery and during recovery.

Is Breast Augmentation Surgery Painful?
Since anesthesia will be used during the surgery, there will be no pain during the procedure. As you recover, there will be some tenderness, but pain can be managed with medication and proper care.
Is Breast Augmentation Surgery Safe? What Are The Risks?
Breast augmentation is performed using anesthesia, and there are common risks associated with being put under. Another possible complication is infection, as with any surgery where tissue is exposed, but this can be easily avoided with good aftercare and rest.
Is Breast Augmentation Surgery Permanent?
The results of a breast augmentation are likely to last a decade or longer. However, it is not considered a permanent, lifetime-lasting procedure, so revisions or new implants would be expected after a number of years.
Should I Expect A Hospital Stay? Will I Need To Have Someone Drive Me Home Following The Procedure?
Breast implants and mastopexy are both performed as outpatient surgery. You will want someone to be with you at home, including at night, for about the first 24-48 hours, especially as you recover from the effects of the anesthesia.
Could I Still Breastfeed After Breast Augmentation Surgery?
Most types of breast augmentation will enable you to breastfeed. The implant type should not affect breastfeeding, but the incision choice can, so be sure to discuss this during your consultation if it’s something you plan on doing in the near (or distant) future.
Will Breast Augmentation Surgery Affect My Nipple Sensitivity?
Patients may experience some changes to nipple sensitivity or sensation after surgery, but this is usually temporary and mainly depends on where incisions are made.
How Much Does Breast Augmentation Surgery Cost?
Breast augmentation cost varies depending on multiple factors, including the type and size of the implant and whether any other procedures, such as mastopexy, will also be performed. Pricing options will all be discussed in detail at a consultation.
Does My Insurance Cover Breast Augmentation Surgery?
In most cases, insurance does not cover the cost of breast augmentation. Ask us about easy financing options to make your vision a reality.
