Breast Augmentation & Breast Implants
Breast augmentation surgery is very popular among women in Houston. The surgery adds volume to your breasts and improves breast shape and profile. Many women feel that larger breasts help balance their body’s overall appearance, giving their figure better symmetry and a more pleasing and feminine look.
Why Consider Breast Augmentation Surgery?
You may wish to consult plastic surgeon Dr. Bob Basu about breast augmentation for many different reasons, including:
- Your breasts have lost volume and begun to sag over time (this correction may also include a breast lift).
- You feel that your breasts have always been small.
- Your breasts have lost volume after pregnancy or breastfeeding.
- You have asymmetrical breasts (one breast is larger than the other).
If you are unhappy with the size and shape of your breasts, then breast augmentation surgery can give you larger, fuller breasts.
Your Choices for Breast Augmentation
If you have decided to get breast augmentation surgery, there are a number of options to consider. Dr. Basu will work with you to determine a surgical plan that best meets your unique needs to create your desired results.
Women can choose either saline or silicone breast implants. Dr. Basu will have samples that you can feel, and he can provide information about each type of implant. You will get to choose what size and profile you want for your breasts after your breast augmentation. Learn more about choosing a breast implant size.
Breast implant placement involves small incisions, which can be made under the breast hidden in your breast crease, around the areola (peri-areolar), in the axilla (armpit), or through the belly button. Dr. Basu will determine the incision technique he will use for your surgery based on where he can best camouflage your incision.
Breast implants can also be placed above or below the muscles of the chest wall. Dr. Basu specializes in the advanced dual-plane technique that helps him achieve natural shaped results.
Are Breast Implants Safe?

Your Breast Augmentation Surgery
During your breast augmentation surgery, you will be under anesthesia. Dr. Basu will make the incision at the appropriate location. He will create a pocket for the implant, place the implant, and then close the incision.
After your surgery you will need to rest for several days and avoid lifting anything. You will wear a special compression bra while you are recovering. There are no sutures to remove, because Dr. Basu performs a cosmetic closure with sutures underneath the skin.
