The purpose of breast augmentation Houston is two fold. First its to increase the size of the breast and secondly to restore volume. This procedure is done either after someone has lost a significant amount of weight or after pregnancy. Now before we go any deeper and discuss the cost involved, recovery and who the ideal candidates are, lets first talk about what breast augmentation won’t do for you.
If your breasts are drooping severely, breast augmentation won’t help. If you are looking for your breasts to be fuller and lifted, you may need to have a breast lift as well as a breast augmentation. In some cases both procedures can be done at the same time. It other cases they will need to be done separately.
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons the average cost of breast augmentation surgery in 2013 was $3,678. However, that is just the cost of the surgery itself. It does not include other fees such as operation room facilities, anesthesia, the surgeon’s fee and other related expenses.
The fee the surgeon charges will be determined by three main things. The surgeons level of experience, the area the surgeon is located in and the type of breast implants being used. You also have to consider any medication you may need to purchase post surgery.
When it comes to paying for breast augmentation Houston you are usually on your own. Most health insurance plans will not cover this type of procedure. Please review your policy carefully before deciding to have a breast augmentation. If it is not covered speak with your surgeon to see if there are any financing options available.
If you are getting a breast augmentation Houston with implants you will need to decide how big you want your breasts to be after surgery. To get an idea of what you want start looking at photos online. Most patients don’t have a good understanding of breast implant volume which is why you should never choose your own CC volume. Tell your doctor what you want and he or she will work with you to find the perfect size.
After your surgery is complete you will be taken to a recovery room where you will be monitored closely. Gauze dressings and an elastic bandage will be wrapped around your breasts to provide support and minimize swelling. Generally speaking you will be in the recovery room a few hours before you are allowed to go home.
Once the doctor has given the okay for you to go home you will be given specific instructions on how to care for your breasts in the coming days and weeks. You may be required to wear a support bra 24 hours a day for up to two weeks. This helps the breasts heal properly.
At home you will be required to cleanse the incision sites and apply ointment. Be sure to follow the instructions carefully as you don’t want to risk getting an infection. Do not resume normal activity until instructed to do so by the doctor.
As with any surgery there are always certain risks and potential complications you should be aware of. Ultimately you will have to decide if the risks are acceptable to you. Before having the procedure you will be required to sign a consent form acknowledging you understand the procedure and any risks associated with it.
Some of the risks associated with breast augmentation Houston include bleeding, infection, scarring, wrong positioning of the implant, implant leakage, fluid accumulation and pain just to name a few. Before you sign a consent form all risks will be fully discussed with you. If you have any questions or concerns be sure to address them with your plastic surgeon.
The ideal candidate for breast augmentation Houston is someone who is physically healthy and is getting this done for themselves and not someone else. If you are not happy with the shape or size of your breasts this may be the perfect solution for you. Go speak with a cosmetic surgeon and they will discuss the ins and outs of this type of surgery to see if you are an ideal candidate.
