About Breast Augmentation
Breast augmentation, also known as breast enhancement, is a surgical procedure that increases the size of breasts by one or more cup sizes overall. Saline or silicone implants are placed beneath the muscles and tissues of the chest in order to add volume. Typically, Houston and Lake Jackson patients can expect the procedure itself to take approximately one hour to complete, though time must be factored in for pre and post-operative routines.
Breast Implant Size and Shape
There are a number of choices to make when it comes to undergoing breast augmentation. Consultation with the surgeon provides Houston and Lake Jackson patients with guidance on what is possible and recommended for them based upon desired results, body frame and current breast size. Implant size and shape are the first considerations that must be decided upon. Implants that are too large for a person’s frame can cause a number of problems like longer recovery times and discomfort, along with achieving a look that is disproportional. Breast implants come in two shapes. These are round and tear-drop shaped. Round implants are chosen the most frequently. Tear-drop shaped implants will result in a silhouette that is fuller on the bottom. Computer imaging can assist patients to visualize their ultimate results.
Types of Implants
Houston and Lake Jackson patients can receive either silicone or saline breast implants. Patient preference often comes into play when deciding which type is best. There are advantages and limitations to each, and we will discuss these options for you during your consultation to decide which is best for you.
Breast augmentation surgery remains popular because it allows patients to achieve a more pleasing chest size that is authentic to them and can lead to enhanced self-confidence.

Improve Your Appearance with Breast Augmentation in Houston
Before signing up for your breast augmentation, you might have a lot of questions. Don’t worry — that’s normal! Here are answers to some frequently asked questions about breast augmentation.
Can I Have a Baby After Having Breast Augmentation?
Many women in Houston believe the myth that they can’t have a healthy baby after having a breast augmentation. Luckily, that’s all it is: a myth. You can even safely breastfeed with your implants, as they will be placed beneath your breast glands.
What’s the Difference Between Saline and Silicone Implants?
Both saline and silicone are great choices for breast augmentation, but they offer slightly different results. With silicone implants, your breasts have a softer and more natural feel with a rounder shape. Saline implants, on the other hand, are slightly heavier. There are many different types, styles and sizes of breast implants. Dr. Yarish and you will determine the type and size that is best for you.
How Long Does Breast Augmentation Last?
Dr. Yarish uses only the highest quality silicone or saline implants, meaning your new look will last for years to come. As long as your implants don’t leak or deflate, you can leave them in for the rest of your life. And if they do start deflating, you won’t be in any danger, as your body can just absorb the saline. If you choose silicone implants and there is an issue, the silicone remains intact inside the shell, so you won’t have any problems.
Will I Have a Lot of Scars?
Scarring is inevitable for Houston patients with breast augmentation. That being said, Dr. Yarish does everything he can to minimize their appearance. While there are different surgical approaches depending on the exact procedures you choose, Dr. Yarish makes incisions in hard-to-see places, such as the crease underneath your breast.
What Can Houston Patients Expect After the Surgery?
After your breast augmentation, Houston patients can go home with some bandages over incisions and a special bra that holds dressings in place. You might feel tightness and pain in your chest, but you can reduce these symptoms by taking over-the-counter pain medications. You will be wearing a sports bra for four to six weeks after surgery and then can ease back into your own bras.
How Long Is the Recovery Period After Breast Augmentation?
Within two to four days after your surgery, you can go about your normal day without too many changes. You should stay home from work and avoid driving for a week to give yourself time to heal, but you’ll be able to shower and walk around before then. No heavy lifting for three to four weeks. As for physical exercise, you shouldn’t do anything too intense for four weeks after your surgery. This includes activities such as jogging, biking, weightlifting, and anything that puts too much strain on your arms and chest.
