Breast Surgery in Fort Worth

Breast Surgery in Fort Worth

A breast surgery procedure is designed to enhance your breasts’ size, contour, and overall symmetry to maximize your aesthetic looks and boost your self-confidence. At North Texas Plastic Surgery, we offer a range of breast enhancement treatments to patients in the Fort Worth region. Some of the benefits of breast surgery include:

  • Improved breast symmetry
  • Helps contour the body after weight loss, aging, or pregnancy
  • Renews self-confidence and self-esteem
  • Provides a more youthful, attractive figure
  • Helps resolve imperfections in the chest caused by an illness, injury, or genetics

Your breast surgery treatment and aftercare is overseen by a team of aesthetic experts under the guidance of a board-certified and highly experienced plastic surgeon. Your surgeon will tailor your treatment to meet your goals while maximizing the benefits and minimizing downtime.

What Does Breast Surgery Involve?

Breast surgery at our Fort Worth office may involve one of several procedures to address specific aesthetic problems of your breast. Some of the principal subdivisions of aesthetic breast surgery are augmentation, lift, and reduction.

Breast augmentation is one of the most prominent plastic surgery procedures and is done to increase breast size. During an augmentation procedure, the surgeon either places implants under the breast tissue or uses a fat transfer with the patient’s own tissue taken from elsewhere on their body. Breast augmentation is preferred for anyone who wants to feel more confident or rebuild their breasts due to various conditions.

A breast lift, also known as mastopexy, is a type of procedure that reshapes and supports the breast tissues to achieve a more youthful figure. During the procedure, the surgeon may reposition your nipples on your chest wall, and restore the shape and volume lost due to breastfeeding, weight loss, or age.

A breast reduction surgery, also referred to as reduction mammoplasty, is done to eliminate excess tissue, fat, and skin from the breast. If you have a large breast, this procedure can help achieve a size that is proportionate to your body while easing the discomfort.

What is Recovery Like After Breast Surgery?

The recovery duration after breast surgery in Fort Worth depends on several factors, including the type of surgery, your age, and overall health. For breast augmentation, you may need six weeks to allow the implants to settle into place and the swelling to disappear. If you had a breast lift, you might need six to 12 weeks for the breasts to fully recover and achieve their final shape. It takes two to six weeks to recover from a breast reduction surgery fully. Additionally, you may need to take one or two days off work after an augmentation – and up to five days for a lift or a reduction.

Our team will be available throughout to ensure a smooth and successful recovery. During this time, it is essential to avoid the most strenuous activities involving raising your arms above the shoulder, lifting, or vigorous workouts. You will be free to engage in cardio activities not involving the upper body after three weeks, and yoga and weight training after six weeks.

Is There Scarring with Breast Surgery?

Scarring occurs with all incisions, and the factors that determine the level of scarring are genetics, age, and skin color. However, our surgeons leverage top-notch techniques to reduce the visibility and appearance of post-surgical scarring. Doctors also recommend the following to reduce the appearance of scars:

  • Eat a healthy protein-rich diet to provide adequate building blocks that heal the incision
  • Avoid strenuous activities that could put undue stress on the incisions to widen them
  • Follow post-procedure care regarding wound care
  • Use silicone gel or sheeting to minimize scar formation.

The following are some tips to achieve faster recovery from the surgical procedure:

  • Get help with your daily activities for at least the first 24 to 48 hours
  • Get a lot of rest and sleep
  • Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water
  • Avoid using alcohol and inflammatory foods high in salt or sugar.

You should expect some post-operative pain to occur in the first week after the procedure. In the early stages of recovery, the doctor may prescribe pain medication to limit discomfort.
