Every woman has her own personal reasons for pursuing breast enhancement surgery. These reasons typically include:

  • Restoring breast volume after pregnancy or weight loss
  • Increasing the size of naturally small breasts
  • Balancing the size of uneven breasts
  • Enhancing self-esteem and femininity

Dr. Steele takes great pride in helping his breast augmentation patients in Fort Worth achieve their desired aesthetic goals and improved self-esteem. He provides an unhurried, comfortable setting for your initial breast augmentation consultation in which you can talk openly about your body and feel comfortable asking questions. Dr. Steele takes the time to understand your goals from a breast enhancement surgery and helps you develop realistic expectations for your results.

During/after Your Breast Augmentation Surgery

Most patients can get back to an office job within 2-3 days after their breast augmentation. We advise plastic surgery for breast augmentation patients to avoid strenuous activity that increases blood pressure or heart rate for 3-4 weeks, at which time it is safe to resume cardio exercise. No lifting more than 15 lbs. is advised for the first 6 weeks after your breast enhancement surgery. In submuscular implants, no pectoral (chest) muscle exercises are advised for at least 8 weeks to minimize the risk of implant displacement. Patients are able to drive as soon as they are no longer taking any sedative medications (pain pills and muscle relaxants).

Preoperative Consultation

During your Fort Worth breast augmentation consultation, Dr. Steele will guide you through your breast implant and surgical options to help determine the right combination for your unique enhancement. These decisions will include:

Implant Type, Saline vs. Silicone, Textured vs. Smooth:

Saline implants are filled with a sterile saltwater solution. These implants may be appealing to some breast augmentation patients because they are cheaper than silicone implants and can be placed through a smaller incision. Disadvantages include increased firmness and more visible wrinkling/rippling compared to silicone implants. Silicone gel implants are very popular due to their more natural look and feel. Modern silicone gel implants are very safe and are filled with a sticky silicone gel (cohesive gel)  that will not migrate even if the surface (shell) of the implant is cracked or ruptured.

The FDA recommends the cosmetic use of silicone gel implants in patients over the age of 22 and recommends periodic MRI screening to rule out silent implant rupture (rare). Silicone gel implants require a slightly longer incision compared to saline and are more expensive. All modern saline implants are round in shape with a smooth silicone elastomer shell. Silicone gel implant shells may be either smooth or textured. Smooth silicone gel implants are often placed under the muscle with low risk of visibility.

Disadvantages of a smooth implant include a potentially higher capsule contracture rate. Texturing of an implant surface appears to decrease the risk of capsule contracture, particularly when placed above the muscle. Additionally, texturing is necessary when using a shaped implant to minimize the risk of implant rotation. Disadvantages of implant texturing include the risk of traction rippling and the very rare breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL) that has been strongly linked to device texturing (see FAQs below). There is no perfect implant for every woman, and Dr. Steele will help you make the best implant decision for you based on your anatomy, personal preferences, and desired goals.

Implant Size:

This decision is highly personal and should be based on your underlying anatomy, as well as your desired goals. It is important to pick an implant that is proportional to your body, while delivering a size that is comfortable for you. Implants that are too small will not deliver a proportional result, while implants that are too large can cause complications and accelerated breast sagging. During your consultation, Dr. Steele will utilize the Crisalix 3D imaging system to assist you in your size selection and help provide you with the most realistic preoperative simulation of your postoperative results.

Implant Shape, Round vs. Anatomic (shaped):

Silicone gel-filled implants may be round or anatomic in shape. For many women with adequate existing breast tissue, using a round silicone gel implant for their breast augmentation will often provide a very nice, natural-looking enhancement.

In some cases, anatomic implants often referred to as “gummy bear implants” may be a better option. Common reasons to choose these particular implants include a very slender physique with a long torso and narrow chest, chest wall asymmetry, constricted/tight lower breast shape, or patient desire for a more natural-looking upper breast.

Disadvantages associated with these implants include increased firmness, higher cost, small chance of implant rotation, and potential for breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL) that is strongly associated with implant texturing (see FAQs below).

Implant Location, Over or Under the Muscle:

The inframammary incision (under the breast) is the most commonly used incision by Dr. Steele. A small incision during your breast enhancement surgery is made in or just below the breast crease on the underside of the breast. It heals very well and is not visible when looking at the chest. This incision allows for the best access to the breast/chest anatomy and allows for optimal implant placement. Additionally, there is a lower rate of breast encapsulation (hardening of the breast implant) with this incision location. The peri-areolar incision is made along the bottom half of the areola. This incision allows direct access to the chest wall and can be useful in patients with an indistinct breast crease, patients with tuberous breasts, and patients undergoing a circum-areolar breast lift. When performed properly, the incision generally heals well, but is still visible when looking directly at the breast. There is also evidence to suggest that this technique increases the risk of capsule contracture.

Are You a Candidate For Breast Augmentation?

If you’re unhappy with the size and shape of your breasts, a local breast augmentation surgery may prove to be the solution you’ve been seeking. During your consultation, you and Dr. Steele will discuss your medical history and the possible results you’ll achieve from the surgery. Good candidates for breast augmentation are those who are in good health and have realistic expectations.

How Much Does Breast Augmentation Cost in Fort Worth?

As an experienced Fort Worth breast augmentation surgeon, Dr. Steele will want to meet with you in his office to discuss associated costs. There’s no one size fits all approach to plastic surgery. Every surgical procedure is tailored to fit the needs of each individual patient. After you talk about your aesthetic goals, you’ll develop a surgical plan to help you reach them. He’ll also discuss the cost of your breast augmentation and the financing options available to you.
