Breast augmentation remains as one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures in the United States. Women looking to enhance the appearance of their breasts are often thrilled with the results that their implants provide. With the wide variety of implants and placement techniques available, each woman can achieve her own ideal look.
Is Breast Augmentation Right For Me?
There are nearly 300,000 breast augmentation procedures in the United States each year. Some of the most common reasons to have breast augmentation surgery include:
- Increasing the size of small breasts for a more feminine figure
- Improving your body’s overall proportions
- Correcting problems with breast asymmetry
- Improving the appearance of breasts that have lost volume after pregnancy or weight loss
During your consultation with San Antonio breast surgeon’s Dr. Ortegon or Dr. Baumholtz, it is important that you are clear about your goals and expectations. This way, they will best be able to help you achieve the look that you want.
What Can I Expect During My Breast Augmentation?
For your breast augmentation surgery, you will be placed under either local or general anesthesia based on the recommendation of your board-certified plastic surgeon. Dr. Ortegon or Dr. Baumholtz then will begin your procedure with either an inframammary incision (along the crease beneath the breast), transaxillary incision (in the arm pit), or a peri-areolar incision (at the edge of the areolas). Incision areas vary from patient to patient based on the implant and the preferences of you and your surgeon.
Your choice of implant is then inserted into your breast either subglandularly or submuscularly, depending on what was discussed during your consultation. If you chose silicone implants, they will be inserted already filled. Saline implants are put in place before being filled with the saline solution to the appropriate size.
What Types of Breast Implants Do You Offer?
There are two main types – saline and silicone. Silicone can be either gel or form stable. Each type of implant has its own set of benefits, so while one woman may prefer saline for its shape, another may choose silicone. Call our San Antonio office today to discuss which type of implant may be right for you.
Patients looking for a smaller breast enhancement procedure may also consider breast augmentation with fat grafting.

Recovering From Your Breast Augmentation
Once your breast surgery is complete, you will need to take a few days to rest at home. We will provide you with a detailed set of care instructions to follow during recovery, but please do not hesitate to ask any questions. A typical recovery period lasts several days, but you will need to limit your activity for a couple of weeks. Swelling and scars will continue to dissipate over time to reveal your fuller, natural looking breasts.
