Breast Augmentation and Breast Implants

During breast augmentation, implants are used to improve the size, shape, profile, and symmetry of the breasts. While it is the most popular plastic surgery procedure in the United States, successful augmentation with implants requires a surgeon who specializes in the procedure.

Implant Size, Shape, and Placement

Board-certified Houston plastic surgeon Dr. Ravi Somayazula takes time to plan and perform all breast augmentation procedures. With a thorough understanding of the anatomy of the breasts, Dr. Ravi evaluates the entire frame to ensure implants are sized and shaped for optimal results.

At Body by Ravi, we use FDA-approved silicone breast implants for all breast augmentation procedures. Silicone breast implants have a thicker viscosity than saline implants and tend to hold their form much longer. This is particularly true of the newer “gummy bear” or cohesive gel implants. The most advanced silicone breast implant available, these will not leak even when ruptured, allowing them to maintain their shape longer than other options.

Dr. Ravi understands that one size does not fit all. For women who desire enhanced cleavage and more fullness in the upper pole of the breast, a more cohesive implant, such as the Inspira Soft touch or Inspira Cohesive, may be best. For enhanced fullness in the lower pole and a more “natural” look, the Inspira Responsive implant may be best.

Dr. Ravi offers a wide selection of breast implants in both rounded and teardrop shape. These implants can be adjusted to precise measurements, allowing them to meet the specific needs of each individual.

Why Choose Dr. Ravi
