Breast Augmentation Overview
From cosmetic enhancements to full breast reconstruction, there are numerous considerations for why you may want to have breast augmentation surgery. This is a procedure that uses a silicone or saline breast implant to increase the size, shape and look of the breasts. Breast augmentation can also restore the breasts after a mastectomy and correct breast asymmetry, creating a youthful appearance and improve self-esteem. Frisco-based, TX plastic surgeon, Dr. Robert Najera, has performed countless breast augmentation procedures for patients in the North Dallas area (serving Frisco, Plano, McKinney, and Allen). His outcomes produce natural, gorgeous results for women.
Breast Augmentation Reviews
"I had a consult with Dr. Najera for a breast augmentation and lift in November 2011. He and his staff were very welcoming and attentive to all my questions and concerns. I was both excited and nervous about the procedure. Dr. Najera and his staff helped me feel calm and comfortable. He is a very gentle and compassionate Doctor who listens to your needs.The staff gives you healthy ?does? and ?don't? prior to the surgery which help you be more prepared for your big day. I had my surgery at the end of January and I could not be happier with my results.Another thing I liked very much was that they took before and after pictures. To be able to see those pictures next to each other just gave me more conformation it was the right decision and Dr. Najera did a beautiful job.I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Najera for any procedure; he has compassion, knowledge and sincerely cares for his patients. Him and his staff are just wonderful!!! They make follow up calls to see how you are feeling or just ask if you need anything. When you walk into the office they always greet you with a big warm smile and know you by name. I can't say enough great things about Dr. Najera and his staff. I would definitely go back for any procedure and recommend him to friends and family."- P.I. / Google / Jun 13, 2013

"Breast Augmentation! Great Surgeon! - Frisco, TX - Highly recommend! - - 24 years old. All my life I've been the petite girl with a flat chest, after having a kid I thought maybe then I would have bigger breast. ummmm no!! Not my case. I searched and searched I finally decided to go on a hunt for a great surgeon After several consultations with several plastic surgeons, I chose Dr. Najera. I choose Dr. Najera because he made me feel very comfortable, he spent about an hour with me going over the procedure and answering any questions I had (Not like other surgeons who I only got to see for about 15 minutes), his staff is amazing and I felt like he actually cared. My surgery was scheduled on a Wednesday very easy went in around 7:30am and was back at home by 2pm. Only took about 3hrs the whole process was great from the moment I arrived to check in to the moment I left the hospital. By day 3 which was Saturday I was getting ready for a friends wedding! Not much pain or soreness, I was able to wear a bandeau perfect fit for my dress. By 6 weeks I felt like I was back to my old self! A year later now I am very pleased and happy to have chosen Dr. Najera he truly changed my life (even though I wished I would of gotten a little bigger)."- L. / RealSelf / Aug 20, 2015
Saline and silicone gel implants both have a rubber silicone shell; the big difference is the filler material. Choosing the type and size of breast implants you want depends on a number of factors and Dr. Najera will discuss all of these during your initial consultation. Factors that will be taken into consideration are sizing (the number of CCs), implant projection, implant width and implant shape. All of these components are assessed so that a natural, fuller look can be achieved. Silicone gel implants are often the better choice for thinner women and for breast reconstruction. However, saline implants require smaller incisions. Your bust line may also benefit from a breast lift in addition to your breast augmentation to give you your best results. Breasts that have a certain degree of sag or loose skin will most likely require a lift first. This will also be discussed during the consultation.
Now available in our office, the IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implant has the natural feel that women want, and advantages over silicone gel implants. After years of development and refinement, including contributions of clinical expertise from plastic surgeons, the IDEAL IMPLANT was approved by FDA and Health Canada. It combines the best of both - natural feel with the safety of only saline inside for peace of mind.
The IDEAL IMPLANT has a series of implant shells nested together and two separate chambers that hold the saline. This internal structure controls movement of the saline and supports the implant edges to reduce folding and wrinkling. In addition, the implant has been designed to contour to the natural curve of the chest wall. With the IDEAL IMPLANT, a women can simply look in the mirror and know her implants are intact.
Please call us today to come in for a consultation. Do your own side-by-side comparison of the IDEAL IMPLANT to the silicone gel implant.
Breast Augmentation During/After Surgery
During breast augmentation surgery, the patient is placed under general anesthesia while the surgery is performed. A typical breast augmentation takes about 1 hour, but it can take longer if more shaping is needed or other procedures are performed. Patients are allowed to leave the same day as the procedure to rest at home and will be advised to follow Dr. Najera’s recovery instructions. Final results will be seen 6-8 weeks after the surgery when the implants have settled into their final position. Scarring is usually not an issue with breast augmentation surgery. In many cases, the incision is placed under the breast in the crease or along the areola.
