Breast Augmentation Implants In San Antonio TX

Breast augmentation can be used to improve the contours and size of the breasts. In people with small degrees of sagging, it can achieve a minor lift.

At the initial consultation, your health history will be reviewed and the procedures you are interested in will be explained in great detail. Any alternative procedures, as well as the risks and benefits of surgery, will be discussed.

Here you will also check before and after photographs of Dr. Lawton’s patients, and all of your questions will be answered.

During the examination, your breast width, height, and nipple position will be measured. Any differences in the breasts from left to right will be evaluated. You will have the opportunity to point out the particular characteristics of your anatomy that you would like to improve or change.

After extensive discussion, you and Dr. Lawton will agree on which surgical plan will best achieve your goals. Our goal and commitment is that you leave this initial visit with a clear understanding of your surgical options, so that you can make an informed decision.

What Happens During The Breast Augmentation Procedure?

Breast Augmentation is performed in our private AAAASF Certified Class-C Outpatient Surgical Center. The minimally invasive breast augmentation procedure takes between 30 minutes and 1 hour.

For this outpatient surgery, we utilize general intravenous anesthesia that is administered by an elite group of carefully selected, highly qualified, board-certified anesthesiologists and is designed to provide a smooth and gentle anesthetic experience, as well as prevent postoperative pain.

Breast Size:

Breast size is a personal choice. Implants come in a variety of sizes that can be tailored to meet your needs. The implants will be matched to your concept of the ideal breast. You will try on sizers at the time of the initial consultation to help you decide on implant size at our office here in San Antonio.

We will measure the height and width of your breasts to determine which implants will fit best on your chest wall. In addition, we will discuss the characteristics of breast shape and contour that you find pleasing, while looking at before and after photographs of my patients who have undergone Breast Implant surgery. Using all of these tools, together we will arrive at the implant size that will best fit your needs.

Breast Implants:

The breast implants are filled at the time of surgery with sterile saline, which is the same type of fluid that is used for your intravenous hydration. The amount of saline injected can be adjusted to create the desired breast shape and correct any size differences between the breasts. The preferred implants are smooth and round, which allows them to move naturally within the implant pocket, keeping them soft. Newer implants have improved and are less likely to cause ripples than older implants.

Implant Position:

In the vast majority of cases, the implants are placed behind the chest muscle to allow the implants to look and feel more natural. This position also results in less interference with mammography and breastfeeding. Submuscular implants have smoother edges and are less likely to form tight scars.

Minimally Invasive (Endoscopic) Surgery

The most sophisticated approach to breast augmentation is through a small incision in the armpit using an endoscope, or surgical camera. This approach is minimally invasive, and provides significant advantages when compared with the other surgical options. The images from the endoscopic camera are displayed on a TV monitor, providing a complete visualization of the surgical space. The space for the implant can, therefore, be carefully crafted to the desired dimensions. This results in the best cosmetic breast shape and position after surgery. Complete visualization of the space during surgery also allows for careful and meticulous control of bleeding, resulting in virtually no bruising and minimal swelling during the recovery period. Endoscopic breast augmentation results in smaller scars, better breast shape, and position, less bleeding, bruising, and swelling, and a faster, less painful recovery.

What Is The Recovery Like After Breast Augmentation?

After your surgery, it is important to get plenty of rest. At home, you will have medications to help to ease the muscle spasm and narcotic analgesics for the pain. We also prescribe antibiotics to reduce the risk of infection. To reduce swelling and bruising, and speed up your recovery, we will provide you with surgical vitamins, arnica, and bromelain.

We will see you the day after your surgery at our office. By the fourth or fifth day, the discomfort should be significantly reduced. You will need to come back in one week to have your sutures removed. By then, you should be feeling well enough to resume most of your normal activities, including work. However, it will take about 6 weeks for your wounds to heal to 50% of their full strength. Only after this time period, you can return to vigorous activities.

We will schedule follow-up appointments with you at 1 day, 1 week, 1 month, 3 months, 6 months, and then every year after that. If needed, Dr. Lawton will see you more frequently, but these follow-up visits will always be free of charge.

Cost And Financing Options For Your Breast Augmentation Procedure

The cost of a Breast Augmentation procedure depends on several factors and variables and may vary from patient to patient. We provide financing options. If you are ready to change your life, the way you feel find out more about the new version of yourself, you can schedule a consultation, or call us at Remington Oaks Medical Building Phone Number 210-496-2639 with any questions about the costs involved with Breast Augmentation surgery.

This was the best experience of my Life!! I am very pleased with the post of my surgery! Very happy with the size of my breast augmentation. I also had lipo 360 which is amazing; especially for those stubborn areas that you just can't work off no matter how much you exercise! Dr. Lawton is very skilled at his profession! He has a keen eye for the right esthetics that will match your body size and shape. So many patients travel from all over the United States just to get the best plastic surgery from Dr. Lawton. He and his staff put me at ease and was able to answer all of my questions. Dr. Lawton is a very carring person, he wants to make sure you leave satisfied and have a clear understanding of what you want and need as his patient. His personal investment in each of his patients is very rare! Thank you for the amazing results I personally can see with my body. I Love Lawton Plastic Surgery and would highly recommend him to my family and friends.

I had breast augmentation back in January 2022 and the results are amazing. The amount of confidence I’ve gained is incredible, Im very happy with my body, and it also improved the quality of my life. You will hear good and bad, mixed opinions about Docs wherever you go. I personally wanted a doctor who has skills/knowledge/clear communication than sugarcoated comments or giving false hope to patients. That’s why I chose Dr. Lawton and Im very happy with my results.

Our Latest Patient Testimonial

After numerous consultations, with several other well recommended plastic surgeons (most I actually liked and a couple I might've trusted to do my surgery) I landed on Dr. Lawton. There are no words to describe how comfortable I felt with him and everyone in his office from start to finish. He was the last doctor I saw, and I thought I knew what I wanted. He challenged everything I said. Size, style, type, consistency. Maybe other people would've ran, but he's friendly, knowledgeable and personable. There was never a moment when I didn't trust him. Even when he walked into pre-op and asked if I'd decided what cc to go with. I told him I had and that number was up to him as he knew exactly what my goals were and I believed he'd do his best to achieve them. I've had many surgeries over the years and I always get very anxious leading up to the procedure, but Dr. Lawton took EXCEPTIONAL care of me. Never for a second was I worried. Possibly because he had me jump through 248 hoops to be cleared for surgery and demonstrated every step of the way that he valued me not only as a patient, but a human being in general. Every single person in his office is top notch, and I could never put into proper words how highly I recommend this practice.
