How do I know if I need a breast lift? What is the best breast lift technique?

The laws of gravity work against your breasts so that eventually they will sag. The degree of sagging varies from patient to patient. A saggy breast doesn’t mean that it is an unattractive breast. As the breast sags, it harder to place it in your bra and it can change your appearance significantly when naked. Superior breast fullness diminishes and the nipple starts to point downward. All these changes are disappointing and lead many women to consider a breast lift […]

Breast lift before and after: Westlake Plastic Surgery, Austin, Texas.

Surgeons have focused on the skin, the underlying tissue and the use of a […]

Asian Breast Augmentation in Austin, Texas: What you need to know about why it’s different.

Yes, that’s right. An Asian breast augmentation is different than all the others for reasons I will describe. As a general rule, Asian skin is much tighter and the dermis is a lot thicker.

What are some problems with larger breast implants?

Breast implant size and complications are directly related: the larger the implants the greater the chance of a host of complications like implant rippling, stretching of the skin, bottoming out, “uniboob”, asymmetries and many others. Based on extensive personal experience with breast implants, my rule of thumb is any breast implant larger than 350cc is considered a larger implant. There are a number of considerations that help your surgeon decide what is best for you—the size you prefer, the shape […]
