Breast Augmentation The Woodlands
Full, youthful breasts are one of the noted hallmarks of the female form, which is the reason many women choose breast augmentation with Houston plastic surgeon Dr. Paul Gill. In The Woodlands, breast augmentation can enlarge your breast size and enhance your overall body proportion.
If You’re Considering Breast Augmentation in Houston
For patients in Houston, breast augmentation, which involves the use of implants to add size and fullness to the female breast is one of the most popular procedures in the US—nearly 300,000 breast augmentation procedures were performed in 2010, according to the ASPS.
The procedure itself can vary greatly depending on the needs and goals of the patient, but the outcome is generally the same—to provide the patient with fuller breasts and improved self-confidence. In order to undergo this procedure with Dr. Gill, you should be making the decision to have surgery independent of anyone else and be able to weigh the inherent benefits and risks. You should also be a healthy non-smoker.
Among the decisions you will make in your consultation with Dr. Gill is the type of implant to use for your breast augmentation in Houston. Saline implants are the least expensive option and are filled during your surgery. Silicone implants, while more expensive, are lighter and have a consistency that feels very much like your existing breast tissue.

Additionally, your consultation will include a discussion about the following option for breast augmentation in Houston as they pertain to your aesthetic goals:
- Breast implant size and shape
- Incision location
- Implant placement
- Implant texture
With each of these considerations, the goal is to achieve a natural and proportional result after your breast augmentation in The Woodlands. Once you have discussed these options with Dr. Gill, you will be ready to move forward with your breast augmentation in Houston.
The Surgery: Breast Augmentation in Houston
In Houston, breast augmentation is performed while you are under a general anesthesia for one to two hours. After Dr. Gill has made the surgical incisions (below the breast, at the nipple, underarm, or navel), he will place the breast implant in a breast pocket, which is created either above or below the chest muscle. Once the implant is centered below the nipple, Dr. Gill will close the incisions with sutures and cover them with an adhesive or tape.
When you return home following your breast augmentation in The Woodlands, you will wear a special bra to aid in healing for up to two weeks. Any pain will be managed with medication and you will be expected to walk some within 24 hours after surgery. You will need to schedule follow-up exams with Dr. Gill and may require future surgery as implants are not guaranteed to last a lifetime.
