Breast augmentation is a cosmetic procedure that enhances the size, shape, and fullness of a woman's breasts
It typically involves using implants or fat transfer to add volume and projection to the breasts. With Dr. Trovato's techniques in breast augmentation Dallas women can achieve their desired appearance — enlarging the breasts, achieving a more symmetrical look and/or creating a fuller profile. The procedure can also be used to restore volume lost due to pregnancy and breastfeeding, weight loss, or aging.

Breast size, for many women, is directly tied to their self-image. If a woman has lived her life with breasts she feels are either too small or uneven in size, there is no longer any stigma attached to increasing the size of the chest through breast augmentation. It's a big decision, and not to be taken lightly. Beyond opting to have breast augmentation, Dr. Trovato's patients also need to make other decisions such as breast implant type, size, and incision location. During your consultation for a breast augmentation Dallas plastic surgeon, Dr. Trovato will help you through the decision making process.
If you are considering breast augmentation, you must speak with a qualified physician to determine if the procedure is right for you. In general, for candidacy for breast augmentation Dallas patients should have the following attributes:
It is important to note that some health issues, such as allergies or medical conditions, may disqualify you from undergoing the procedure. Be sure to discuss all of your health concerns with Dr. Trovato before deciding if breast augmentation is right for you.
Enhanced breasts can elevate a woman's self confidence
When initially considering breast augmentation, Dr. Trovato tries to make sure the patient has realistic expectations. After all, larger breasts won't solve all of a person's problems and make a new you. But enhanced breasts can elevate a woman's self-confidence and body image. Dr. Trovato tries to give his Dallas breast augmentation patients as much information as possible about the procedure and the options available. Then, he helps with your decision-making.
During your consultation, Dr. Trovato will discuss the types of implants that are available and explain the benefits of each one. There are various implants to choose from, and depending on your desired results, one type of implant may be more suitable for you than another.
Silicone and saline implants are the two main types of breast implants available. Silicone implants are filled with a silicone gel and have a more natural feel than saline implants. They also tend to be more durable and provide a more natural look and feel. Saline implants are filled with sterile salt water and are typically less expensive than silicone implants. However, they may feel less natural and move more when touched.
In addition to implants, fat transfer is another option for breast augmentation. This procedure involves harvesting fat from other areas of the body and transferring it to the breasts. This procedure can provide a natural look and feel and longer-lasting results than implants. The fat transfer procedure is much less invasive than implants and typically involves a shorter recovery period. Additionally, fat transfer breast augmentation has been shown to be safe and effective with minimal risk of complications.
Smooth and textured implants are two choices available for breast augmentation. Smooth implants have a soft, natural feel and move around more naturally within the breast. Textured implants are covered with a finely textured surface that helps the implant stay in place. This can provide a more stable, long-term result but may not give as natural of a look or feel.
Teardrop and round implants are also two choices for breast augmentation. Teardrop breast augmentation mimics the natural shape of the breasts. Round implants give the breasts a more full, rounded look and are often chosen for more dramatic results. Both types of implants have their advantages, and it is important to discuss your desired outcome with Dr. Trovato.
High, moderate, and low-profile implants are the three main profiles available for breast augmentation. High-profile implants provide a more voluptuous look and are a good choice for women with smaller frames. Moderate profile implants offer a more natural look and feel, while low profile implants give the breasts a more subtle, rounded appearance. One of these profiles may be better suited to your goals than another.
Breast augmentation is an outpatient surgical procedure. During the procedure, Dr. Trovato will use the patient's carefully crafted treatment plan to guide incision location as well as implant type and placement. Under general anesthesia, breast augmentation patients will undergo a 1-2 hour surgery. After surgery is completed, a compression garment will be used to reduce swelling and fluid buildup. Patients may stay in recovery for 1-3 hours as they come out of anesthesia.
The incisions used for breast augmentation depend on the type of implant, placement, and desired results. Dr. Trovato will discuss each of these incision locations in detail prior to surgery.
The transaxillary incision is placed in the natural crease of the armpit, making it an ideal location for those wanting to minimize visible scarring. This incision is used for saline and silicone gel implants and allows Dr. Trovato to place the implant without creating an incision on the breast.
The inframammary incision is located along the breast's natural crease and is used for both saline and silicone implants. This incision allows for direct visualization of the breast pocket, making it a good choice for women who want optimal control over size and shape. This incision also has less risk of visible scarring than other incision locations.
The areolar incision is located in the perimeter of the areola and can be used for both saline and silicone implants. This incision is beneficial for those who want to reduce the visibility of their scarring. It also allows Dr. Trovato greater control over implant placement and size, as well as the ability to adjust symmetrical positioning.
The trans-umbilical breast augmentation (TUBA) incision is a single incision made in the navel. This procedure is minimally invasive, meaning it requires less recovery time and has a lower risk of complications. It is an ideal choice for those who want to minimize visible scarring and have a shorter recovery time. However, TUBA is only available for saline implants.
Breast augmentation patients usually feel sore and tired for a day or two after their breast implant procedure. Your stitches are removed one week after breast augmentation, roughly the same time most patients return to work. During your breast augmentation recovery, you may experience some post-operative sensations, such as pain, sensitivity and swelling, but this will quickly fade over the first couple of weeks after breast implant surgery.
Beyond the incision location, you'll also need to decide if you'd like the implants placed beneath or atop the chest muscle. Breast implants placed beneath the muscle have a lower risk of capsular contracture, where scar tissue forms around the implant leading to a tightening sensation. This location will also lead to fewer issues during mammograms. The other option is to place the breast implant under the breast tissue, but on top of the chest muscle. This generally makes for an easier recovery after breast augmentation surgery.
Breast augmentations are generally very safe, but with any surgery, complications can occur. In this case, complications may include infection around the implant, swelling and pain, altered nipple sensation, capsular contracture, and leakage of the breast implant.

There will likely be some moderate soreness for a few hours after the surgery. In most patients, for 3-5 days after the surgery there may be discomfort and tenderness due to inflammation.
Since there are so many customizable variables involved with breast augmentation surgery, the cost will depend on the specifics. Total price and finance options will be discussed during the consultation.
