Thinking about getting breast augmentation in San Antonio? One of the most popular areas of plastic surgery today, cosmetic breast augmentation enhances the size and shape of a woman’s breasts using a saline or silicone implant that resembles a natural breast. Full, shapely breasts can make any woman feel more feminine, beautiful, and secure in her skin and clothes. Dr. Robert Young is widely known as the “breast doctor”, and breast enhancements are his specialty. Many of Dr. Young’s colleagues consider him the best breast doctor in San Antonio.
About Breast Augmentation
A breast augmentation is the perfect procedure for any woman desiring a more curvaceous, sexy bustline with a naturally enhanced look. Dr. Young strives to exceed the expectations of his patients here in San Antonio by creating completely natural-looking results with every procedure. Breast augmentation improves a woman’s self-esteem and her ability to wear clothes without feeling self-conscious or having ill-fitting garments.
The procedure is usually performed under general anesthesia on an outpatient basis where after the surgery is performed, the patient returns home the same day. In some instances, we are asked about “Awake Breast Augmentations”, which is when the patient is under light sedation, which eliminates any discomfort, but allows the patient to remain conscious during surgery. If you’d like to learn more about awake breast augmentation, schedule an appointment and Dr. Young can determine if it’s right for your needs.
Breast Implant Options
Dr. Young knows that his patients have the exact image of how they want their breast implants to look, and he encourages patients to share that information down to the smallest detail. There are many breast implant options. Implants come in all different sizes and shapes: round and oval (anatomical), different projections (low profile, moderate profile and high profile to name a few), and are available in saline or cohesive silicone gel. There are breast implants available for every type of body size and shape and Dr. Young can help guide you in your selection. During your consultation, you’ll have the opportunity to try on different size implants to see just how quality breast implants can transform how you look, and how you feel!
Breast Implants FAQ
Do breast implants give you cleavage?
Not necessarily. If your breasts are set far apart, increasing the size of the breasts will not result in cleavage. If your shoulders are narrow, and your breasts are close together, then increasing the size will also increase cleavage.
How long does it take to recover from breast implant surgery?
For implants that are placed below the muscle (submuscular) patients often require two weeks of rest before returning to normal activities. Implants placed above the muscle, the downtime is often as short as a single week.
How long until I can exercise again?
It’s recommended that patients don’t exert themselves for two weeks after surgery. This includes vigorous exercise, or any activity that involves heavy lifting. Many exercise like weightlifting, jogging, or other activities with rapid movement should not performed up to six weeks after surgery. This is to prevent shifting the breast implants out of position.
Will I be given an anesthetic?
General anesthesia is typically used for breast surgery. Dr. Young can also provide a local anesthetic if required.
When can I resume my normal life?
Many patients can return to work within just a few days of rest, but are urged to avoid strenuous physical activities.
Silicone vs. Saline Implants
One of the questions facing breast implant patients is whether they should get silicone or saline implants. Silicone has a huge advantage in terms of touch, because they are the softest breast implants available.
Saline implants on the other hand are less expensive, and are filled with saltwater, making them much safer in the event of breakage or leaking.
Breast Augmentation Costs
According to a 2017 survey by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average cost of breast augmentation surgery is $3,718. Please note this is the SURGEON cost and not the entire cost.
The cost of breast augmentation surgery varies from patient to patient. Each patient has their own special needs and desires, and as a result it’s difficult to advertise a one size fits all price for the procedure. After you’ve met with Dr. Robert N. Young, he will provide you with a quote for your breast augmentation surgery.
