The benefits of breast enhancement surgery

So why should a patient seek breast augmentation surgery in the first place? While some women want to restore volume that has been lost because of aging or breastfeeding, others may simply desire better cleavage and a feeling of self-confidence. Dr. Dauwe understands that there are many reasons why a patient would increase their breast size, and our committed staff will respect your choices every step of the way. With surgery, patients may be able to address the following concerns:

  • Decrease in breast size due to pregnancy or nursing

  • Age-related loss of volume in the breasts

  • Naturally small or underdeveloped breasts

  • Asymmetrical or uneven breasts

  • A feeling self-consciousness due to the appearance of the breasts

Breast augmentation with implants

This form of breast enhancement surgery adds fullness to the breasts by placing saline and silicone breast implants into the breast pocket. Through the positioning of the pocket, Dr. Dauwe can ensure the breasts are proportionate in size while improving the overall silhouette. With many options to choose from in terms of size and surgical techniques, patients can personalize this procedure any way they wish. When you visit our clinic for a consultation, our office will review the materials available.

Silicone implants closely approach the feel of natural breast tissue, while saline implants are filled with a sterile solution and are generally more cost-effective. Implant size is determined based on the cubic centimeters (ccs) of materials used. Saline and silicone breast implants also come in either a teardrop or round shape. Even though both these shapes are widely used, most of our patients in Dallas, TX prefer a round implant. This is because they add fullness to the top of the breasts as well as the bottom.

Breast lift surgery

Although small size is one of the most common complaints patients have about breasts, sagging is another reason women seek breast enhancement surgery. There are a lot of factors that can contribute to sagging or drooping breasts, but adding more volume with saline and silicone breast implants could cause this problem to become worse. If this is the case, breast lift surgery may be the ideal procedure for you. A breast lift is meant to raise the tissue to a higher position on the chest, making them appear perky once again. Because lifting the breasts gives patients the illusion of larger breasts, a lift can be performed as a standalone procedure.

Fat transfer to breast

Another technique to enhance your breasts is through a fat transfer, a minimally-invasive procedure that allows patients to fill their breasts with their own natural tissue. This method appeals to women who are not interested in saline and silicone breast implants and desire a faster recovery time. It is also ideal for those who struggle with excess fat in other areas of the body. To begin a fat transfer to breast surgery, Dr. Dauwe harvests fat from the trunk or thighs through a liposuction technique. The fat gets moved through a specialized machine that takes out any contaminants. Our staff completes the procedure by administering the fat directly into the breasts.
