Model

Many women with naturally small breasts desire a fuller, more voluptuous chest. Pregnancy, weight loss, and aging can also make a woman’s once full breasts appear flat and deflated. Breast augmentation uses implants to restore lost breast volume and enhance breast shape for a fuller, more attractive appearance.

Breast Augmentation FAQs

  • What type of anesthesia will be used during my procedure?

    Dr. Pearce will perform your breast augmentation using general anesthesia.

  • Can fat grafting be used for my breast augmentation procedure?

    Yes. Dr. Pearce can use the technique of fat grafting for breast augmentation for women looking to increase the size of their breasts with more subtle results. Fat grafting is also performed using general anesthesia.

  • Which incision will best accommodate my breast implants?

    Both saline and silicone breast implants can be placed through either the periareolar or the inframammary incision. However, silicone implants may require a larger incision to be made.

  • What is the best implant placement choice?

    Dr. Pearce prefers submuscular placement because it has been shown to decrease the risk of capsular contracture. However, he will work with each patient based on her goals and desires, as long as she understands the risks involved with surgery.

I was so impressed by how he spent his time with me. He is dedicated to making his patients lives better and more beautiful. He is new in town but will definitely be an incredible addition to the Austin plastic surgery scene.
