Choosing to undergo breast augmentation is an important decision, which can impact not only your appearance but your self-confidence. To ensure your health and safety, as well as exceptional results, it is critical to choose a reputable surgeon who can tailor all aspects of the procedure to your unique needs. Dr. David L. Liland performs augmentation surgery at his advanced surgical suites in Dallas, TX, which are held to the highest safety standards. He can carefully place your implants and camouflage your incisions for the best possible outcome. Breast augmentation surgery can take one to two hours, depending on where and how the implants are placed, but the average surgery time is around 45 minutes.
Prior to Surgery
To ensure successful results, Dr. Liland can provide you with detailed pre- and post-operative at-home instructions. If you receive general anesthesia, you may not eat or drink anything after midnight the night before your surgery. You may also need to shower with a chlorhexidine antibacterial wash both the night before and the morning of your surgery to reduce your risk of infection. On the day of your surgery, do not apply any perfumes, lotions, or deodorants. You should also wear loose-fitting, comfortable clothing.
When you entrust your care to a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Liland, you can feel confident that you will receive the highest standard of service and exceptional results.
You will need to allow ample time prior to your scheduled surgery to check in and complete any additional paperwork. At this time, you can ask any final questions, and Dr. Liland can mark your incision sites for surgery.
Before beginning, we can place you under general anesthesia intravenously or through inhaled sedation, or you may receive sedation.
Dr. Liland can place implants through incisions in one of three locations: the breast crease (inframammary), armpit (transaxillary), or the perimeter of the areola (periareolar). The type of incision created will depend upon the implant selected, the size of the areola, and your personal preferences. Dr. Liland can camouflage the incisions to minimize any visible scarring.
