Breast augmentation can improve the appearance of the entire upper body. Used to produce ideal symmetry, projection, and contours, breast augmentation can create enticing proportions, improve clothing options, and help a positive self-image.

Through breast augmentation, our Houston plastic surgeon can:

  • Create more impressive cleavage
  • Improve projection and profile
  • Increase bust size
  • Improve breast shape
  • Produce symmetry

If you are unhappy with the size, shape, projection, or appearance of your breasts, now may be the best time to talk to Dr. Ravi about breast augmentation. We offer a range of options, including breast augmentation through fat transfer that can be used to customize your breast enhancement for the most natural-looking and complementary results.

What to Know About Recovery

Recovery from breast augmentation occurs in stages. During the first week or so, you should plan on taking it easy. Avoiding physically demanding tasks and primarily resting will be best during this time. You will need to avoid soaking your incisions, so bathing and swimming will be prohibited during this stage. You will not be able to soak the incisions until they have healed – which may take six to eight weeks.

Dr. Ravi performs electrocautery of the blood vessels during breast augmentation. While more time consuming, this surgical technique reduces trauma and minimizes post-operative bruising, swelling, and pain. Taking this step helps ensure your recovery will be as short and comfortable as possible, but swelling may continue to produce asymmetrical results for a few weeks. During this time, your breast implants will be settling into their pockets. Once settled, your breasts should take on their new look. This process can take several weeks.

Because recovery can take several weeks and, during that time, swelling and symmetry may be present, having breast augmentation performed during the cooler months, when more clothing is worn, may be best. In this way, by the time summer rolls around, you will be ready to shed clothes and show your new contours to the world. What’s more, having breast augmentation now will allow you to go swimming by summer, helping ensure you are able to enjoy all that the season has to offer.
