Harvard-trained plastic surgeon, Dr. Ravi Somayazula cares deeply about the health, safety, and satisfaction of each patient he sees. Taking time to understand the unique anatomy, desires, and ultimate goals of our breast augmentation patients, Dr. Ravi carefully plans and performs these procedures with the attention of an artist. This helps to ensure each breast enlargement is both natural-looking and complementary to surrounding features.
Dr. Ravi listens carefully to our patients. This allows him to fully understand individual needs. Combining precision in measurements and planning with his years of training and hands-on experience, our board-certified plastic surgeon is meticulous in approach and thoughtful in execution, steps that help ensure our breast augmentation patients are provided with results that truly suit their unique anatomy. With the use of “wish pictures” provided by the patient, and measurements taken at the consultation, Dr. Ravi will determine the proper size, projection and cohesivity of the implants to individualize the breast augmentation for each patient.

Dr. Ravi’s Breast Augmentation Technique
Dr. Ravi performs breast augmentation in our private, AAAASF-Accredited surgical suite. Held to the same standards as an accredited hospital, our surgical suite is designed for patient comfort and safety, and enables us to be directly involved in every aspect of your care.
Dr. Ravi performs breast augmentation under general anesthesia to help ensure optimal comfort. To help reduce risks of bleeding and infection, he performs electrocautery of the blood vessels while making breast pockets. This is a relatively unusual approach because it takes more time. Dr. Ravi, however, believes time is immaterial when patient safety and results are on the line.
In addition to electrocautery, which may help reduce scar size, thickness, and visibility, Dr. Ravi utilizes Exparel®, a local anesthetic that reduces the need for prescription analgesics and helps to speed the healing process. Both of these things can impact the appearance of your final results.
At our Houston practice, breast implants are placed using the Keller Funnel® technique. This no-touch method of breast implant insertion helps:
- Reduce incision size
- Reduce pain and discomfort
- Reduce risks of infection
- Reduce risks of capsular contracture
As with all breast augmentation techniques at our office, this method of breast implant insertion has been selected due to its safety, efficacy, and remarkable results. We would be happy to discuss this with you in greater detail during your time in our care.
