If you are looking to increase the size of your breasts, correct asymmetry or restore lost volume, you may be a good candidate for breast augmentation.
During your consultation with San Antonio breast surgeon Dr. Ortegon, it is important that you are clear and realistic with your goals and expectations. This way, he will best be able to help you achieve the look that you want.
Great experience and loved the results! I’m very satisfied:) Dr. Ortegon did my breast augmentation and he was very friendly and right to the point. Answer all my questions and overall an awesome doctor!
Dr. Delio Ortegon is board certified in both plastic and general surgery. He specializes in breast procedures, delivering the most satisfying results with the least invasion possible. Dr. Ortegon provides each patient with a customized treatment plan, assisting them in making important decisions to ensure they receive the results they expect.
Increase the size of small breasts for a more feminine figure
Improve overall body proportions, or correct asymmetry
Restore appearance of pre-pregnancy or volume loss breasts
Before starting the procedure, you will be placed under either local or general anesthesia based on the recommendation of your board-certified plastic surgeon. Your choice of implant is inserted into your breast either sub-glandular or sub-muscularly, depending on what was discussed during your consultation with Dr. Ortegon.
Vectra 3D imaging is an innovated way to view your expected results and make informed decisions about your procedure. By taking several images from various angles, a 3-dimentional model is created and displayed for the doctor and patient to see. From that model, patients can see which implant type will give them the look they desire.
Subglandular simply means that the implant is placed in a pocket behind the breast gland and on top of the muscle. With implants inserted sub-glandular, the breasts may move more naturally when using the chest muscles and slight breast sagging is corrected.
Submuscular is when the implant is behind BOTH your breast gland and muscle. Reduce risk of hardening scar tissue and interference with mammograms. A downside is that this may require drainage tubes and a longer recovery period.
Breast augmentation allows women to achieve their ideal bodies thanks to a wide variety of procedure options and many different implant options. There are two main types of implants – saline and silicone. Silicone can be either a more liquid gel or a cohesive gel. At San Antonio Cosmetic Surgery we offer round silicone gel implants and gummy bear implants. Each type of implant has its own set of benefits. One woman may prefer saline for its rupture safe filling and natural feel. However, another patient may choose silicone for the more structured shape. If you have any questions, call our San Antonio office today to discuss which type of implant may be right for you.
Patients looking for a more natural look or smaller breast enhancement procedure may also consider breast augmentation with fat grafting.
Saline-filled implants are silicone shells filled with sterile salt water. These types of implants are inserted into the breast pocket while empty and filled once in place.
Silicone gel breast implants continue to be a favorite choice for women, providing results that look and feel extremely natural.
Natrelle 410 breast implants are made with a highly cohesive silicone gel filler and come in a shape designed to mimic the natural curves of a woman’s breast. This is a safe and reliable silicone implant that allows for personalization of your enhancement, with different levels of cohesiveness for the look and feel you want.
Natrelle’s Inspira implants use the same FDA approved silicone gel that Natrelle has been using for 10 years to provide women with the natural-looking enhancements they desire. Shape your feminine figure with fuller, beautiful curves.
Post-procedure, Dr. Ortegon will recommend that you wear a surgical bra to minimize swelling and provides support for the breasts. For a few days post-surgery, you may feel tired and sore and you may 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. 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.
