How does breast augmentation work?

Breast augmentation surgeries aim to enhance your breasts, whether by making them larger, more symmetrical, or more shapely. There are several ways to achieve these results. During your consultation at North Texas Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Greenberg can tell you more about:

Saline implants

Saline implants are positioned either partially or fully under the muscle (submuscular) or over the muscle and behind your breast (subglandular). They’re filled with a sterile saltwater solution. 

They require smaller incisions than silicone implants because they can be filled after the implant is inserted, and it’s easy to adjust the size. 

Silicone implants

Silicone implants have a more natural feel, though they’re positioned in the same way as saline implants. They’re filled with a silicone gel that feels very similar to natural breast tissue.

Breast augmentation fat transfer

If you’d like to avoid implants, fat transfer breast augmentations let you use harvested fat from some other area of your body to enhance your breasts. 

What is awake breast augmentation?

Dr. Greenberg is the only physician in the area to offer awake cosmetic surgeries — no general anesthesia. Instead, he uses tumescent anesthesia, a localized technique with fewer risks. You’ll be awake during your surgery but won’t feel any pain. 

You’ll see the results right away and can provide real-time input on your breast implant size. 

Compared to breast augmentation with general anesthesia, awake breast augmentation offers:

  • A faster recovery
  • Less bruising
  • Less pain
  • Fewer complication risks
  • More affordability

Dr. Greenberg can tell you more about the advantages during your initial surgical consultation. 

What should I expect during recovery after a breast augmentation?

Dr. Greenberg provides personal attention to your post-op care to help you avoid complications and achieve the best possible outcome. The healing process can take some time, and you’ll need to wear a supportive surgical bra for several days. 

During your recovery period, North Texas Cosmetic Surgery might advise you to:

  • Take a prescription to manage pain
  • Return to work within a few days to a week
  • Wait a few weeks to engage in strenuous activity
  • Wear a sports bra as the swelling goes down

The swelling eventually subsides, but you’ll have some lasting scars. Dr. Greenberg positions them inconspicuously and advises you to follow all postoperative instructions for the best possible result.
