Achieve a Larger, Natural-looking Bust Line
If you want to enhance your bust line, breast augmentation surgery performed by Dr. Azita Madjidi at her Houston office can give you larger, natural-looking breasts.
Breast augmentation is one of the most frequently performed procedures by Houston female plastic surgeon Dr. Azita Madjidi. Many women naturally have small breasts, and some experience lost volume after pregnancy or weight loss. They want to feel more confident about themselves and that usually comes from a more proportionate bust resulting from breast augmentation. Dr. Madjidi takes her time to listen to her patients' desires and discuss the most reasonable options based on individual physical examination and measurements.

During your first consultation for breast enhancement with Dr. Madjidi, samples of different types of breast implants will be shown to you so you can feel them in your hands and make a better choice. Based on the type of implant you chose, saline or silicone gel (which includes the popular gummy bear implant), Dr. Madjidi will discuss with you their specific characteristics.
Both saline and silicone gel implants have a silicone envelope.
Saline implants come empty and are filled to the desired volume at the time of surgery. They can be folded for insertion through a smaller incision. In case one breast is moderately smaller than the other one, the saline implant on that side may be filled a bit more to match the other side. In case the implant deflates, the saline gets absorbed by the body and you can notice the results of the rupture in a few hours or a couple of days.
Silicone gel implants come at a determined size and cannot be filled or emptied at the time of surgery. They cannot be compressed for insertion beyond a certain point or they will be damaged. Only patients older than 22 years of age can have silicone gel implants.
Both types of implants come in different sizes and shapes. Depending on your physical exam, and the shape and size that you wish to achieve, Dr. Madjidi will show you your options of breast implants and recommend one that will work best for you.
She will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of saline-filled implants versus silicone gel implants so a decision can be made with a clear understanding of the pros and cons of each.
Dr. Madjidi will discuss the placement of scars, as well as placement of implants, either above or below the muscle, or a third choice which is a known as a dual plane. She will discuss her preferred way of performing the procedure to provide the most natural results for you. During the initial consultation, Dr. Madjidi will give you a booklet of information on breast augmentation for you to review at home. You are encouraged to make a list of questions and bring it with you next time. She will also go over post-operative care and follow-up regimen.
For those who have already had breast implants and need to remove or change them, Dr. Madjidi can also perform breast implant revision and breast implant exchange. Breast implants are not made to last a lifetime and eventually some of them will need to either be removed or replaced for various reasons. The body reacts in various degrees to implants, which can lead to capsular contracture. This can be deforming and sometimes painful. The removal or exchange of implants may require the removal of the capsule. If the implant is deflated or ruptured, in some instances the manufacturing company may contribute to the cost of one or two new implants since they come with a lifetime warrantee.
The surgery is performed under general anesthesia or IV sedation as an outpatient procedure. Typically, no drain is inserted. All sutures are absorbable. You will wake up with a surgical bra and a light bandage. You may feel some tightness or soreness for a few days to a couple of weeks until your muscles relax and find their new comfortable position.
The swelling should be gone in two to four weeks and the final shape will be obtained after about three months. The scars which will initially be firm and pink normally continue to flatten and fade for up to a year. Dr. Madjidi will advise you on different scar treatment based on how your body heals.
