If you’re dissatisfied with the size or shape of your breasts, you’re not alone. Dr. Sozer and Dr. Phillips at El Paso Cosmetic Surgery perform over 400 breast implant surgeries annually, helping women regain confidence in their bodies.
What are Breast Implants?
Breast augmentation is a surgery to insert implants into the breasts for increased size and symmetry. Many women feel that their breasts are too small or are self-conscious about breasts that are asymmetrical or have lost volume and firmness after weight loss or childbirth. Breast implants can restore volume and symmetry.
There are several types of breast implants in various shapes to best meet your aesthetic goals. Saline implants generally require smaller incisions and have more volume choices, while silicone implants are long-lasting and more natural feeling but can make it harder to detect ruptures.
We also have various sizes and shapes of implants, such as round or teardrop, depending on your preferences. During your consultation at El Paso Cosmetic Surgery, your provider will discuss your goals and help you determine the best implants for you.
How Much do Breast Implants Cost?
The cost of breast augmentation depends on several factors, including your geographic location, provider, and the type of implants you choose. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average cost of breast augmentation surgery is approximately $8,000. This price typically includes the cost of the breast implants and your surgeon’s surgical fees as well as anesthesia or surgery center fees.
Your El Paso Cosmetic Surgery provider will help you create a personalized treatment plan so you’ll know what to expect. Silicone breast implants are often more popular for their natural look and feel but typically cost more than saline implants.
Breast Augmentation Procedure and Recovery
Dr. Sozer or Dr. Phillips will perform your breast augmentation surgery under general anesthesia. They will carefully place the incisions in the breast crease, around the areola, or in the armpit for minimal scarring. The implants will then be inserted either under the breast tissue or under the breast chest muscle.
You’ll be able to go home the same day. Swelling, bruising, and tenderness are normal for a while after the procedure. You can return to regular activities within ten days, but you should wait three to four weeks for strenuous activities.
Benefits of Breast Implants
Many women feel more confident after getting breast implants and enjoy larger, enhanced breasts for many years.
Some of the benefits of breast augmentation include:
- Larger, fuller breasts
- Improved breast symmetry
- Enhanced breast shape
- Restored perkiness and volume after breastfeeding
Breast implants are a safe, effective way to boost your bust and your confidence. You can expect your breast implants to last for ten years or more.
