About Breast Augmentation
Dr. Dauwe works closely with each of his patients in Dallas, Texas with their goals in mind. Planning a breast augmentation requires careful attention to details that Dr. Dauwe will gather on his consultation with you. Four main decisions need to be made by you when planning your breast augmentation.

1. Implant Size
The ideal implant size is determined by the width of your chest, quantity of breast tissue, quality of your skin, and your individual goals. These variables will be measured and discussed with you during your consultation.

2. Scar location
Breast augmentation can be performed through the fold beneath your breast (IMF incision), through your armpit (trans-Axillary), or along the bottom of your areola (peri-areolar). This decision can be refined by discussion of the pros and cons with Dr. Dauwe, but ultimately, scar location should be determined by your preference. We will apply our multimodal scar management protocol to keep your scars as discreet as possible.

3. Implant Location
The implant is placed either below the muscle (sub-muscular) or on top of the muscle (sub-fascial). In patients with little breast tissue, placement below the muscle is preferable to reduce implant visibility. Placement above the muscle is preferable in very muscular patients (body builders) to reduce movement of the implants with contraction of the chest muscles.

4. Implant Type and/or Fat Transfer
Silicone and saline implants are both available and provide excellent aesthetics in breast augmentation. The majority of breast implants placed today are silicone because these devices have seen major technological advances in the last two decades. These refinements have enhanced the natural feel and the natural shape of the breast, and prevent visible rippling, which is commonly seen with saline implants.

Breast augmentation can also be performed with fat transfer after liposuction. Liposuction is performed on your trunk or thighs and this fat is transferred to your breasts. While this technique provides the most natural result, it is limited in the size of breast that can be achieved. The benefit of this technique is enhancement of body shape from the liposuction.

Can I get implants and fat transfer at the same time?
Absolutely. This is called a composite breast augmentation and can lead to excellent natural results.

Breast Augmentation Recovery & Results
The recovery for breast augmentation is 24 hours. Dr. Dauwe’s patients go home the same day as surgery, take a nap to recover from anesthesia, and are encouraged to stay mobile after surgery. You may shower after 24 hours, and if you are feeling up to it, you may go out to dinner the night of the surgery. Dr. Dauwe’s patients often return to work in Dallas, Texas at approximately 3-4 days after surgery.

Results after breast augmentation should be assessed after the swelling has resolved and the implants have ‘settled’ into position. You can expect an enhanced size, shape, and proportionality of your breasts to your body.

Procedure Length
Breast augmentation takes 1 hour. Fat transfer to the breasts takes about 2 hours because it requires liposuction too.
