Breast augmentation can help women enhance the shape, size, and proportion of their breasts. For over 25 years, Dr. David L. Liland has delivered advanced care, designing treatment plans that complement the features of each individual patient. He can review your unique aesthetic goals and recommend the most flattering size and type of implant, as well as the most effective technique for your needs. All of our augmentation procedures are performed at our state-of-the-art surgical suite in Dallas, TX, which meets the highest safety standards in the industry.
Is Treatment Right for You?
There are many reasons why women choose to undergo a breast augmentation procedure. As we age, breasts naturally begin to sag and lose volume. In addition, the shape and size of breasts can change dramatically due to breast-feeding, pregnancy, and weight loss. Women who desire fuller, firmer breasts can achieve a more youthful physique with breast implants, restoring their sense of self-confidence. Many patients wish to undergo treatment to address:
- Breast asymmetry
- Slightly drooping or sagging breasts
- Lost volume in the upper area of the breast
- Dissatisfaction with breast shape
Keep in mind that breast augmentation is not designed to treat severely drooping breasts. Instead, we may recommend a breast lift in combination with implants for more comprehensive results.
For over 25 years, Dr. David Liland has delivered advanced care, designing treatment plans that complement the features of each individual patient.
To qualify for treatment you should be physically healthy, without any conditions that may compromise your safety during or after surgery. Additionally, you should not be pregnant or breast-feeding. During your consultation, Dr. Liland can review your medical history as well as your preferences and concerns. He can determine whether this procedure will bring about your desired results. We offer implants composed of saline and silicone, as well as implants of different sizes and shapes.
Our Patient Results
Preparing for Breast Augmentation
Patients should abstain from smoking for at least two weeks prior to surgery. In addition, you should refrain from taking medication that contains aspirin, anticoagulants, Vitamin E, or herbs for two weeks prior to the procedure. We can provide you with a complete list of medications to avoid at your pre-operation appointment. It is also important to schedule a friend or loved one to drive you to and from surgery and stay with you for the first 24 hours.
We perform breast implant surgery in our surgical suite as an outpatient procedure. After administering anesthesia, we can create small incisions through which we can place the implant. We can perform one of three techniques, creating either a periareolar incision, an inframammary incision, or transaxillary incision. We can then place the implant either under the pectoral muscle, or over the pectoral muscle but behind the breast tissue. Once we have secured the implant in place, we can close the incision with sutures, skin adhesive, or surgical tape.
Post-Op and Recovery
After surgery, we can wrap your breasts in gauze dressing to minimize any swelling, as well as provide you with a support garment. For the first 24 to 48 hours, it is common to experience some bruising, swelling, and discomfort. Pain can be managed with either over-the-counter or prescription medication. Over the course of the next several weeks, these side effects should subside. However, patients should still refrain from heavy lifting or rigorous exercise until cleared by Dr. Liland. You can expect to resume most normal activities within three weeks of surgery.
It is important for patients to know what to expect throughout their recovery to ensure the best possible results. Dr. Liland can provide you with thorough at-home instructions and monitor your progress after surgery during follow-up visits.
