Breast augmentation is popular in Houston, TX with many women who visit Dr. Camille Cash for a variety of reasons. Whether they have felt under-endowed their entire lives or their bodies have changed after childbirth, most women choose breast augmentation because they simply want to look better and feel more self-confident.

"These are not necessarily women who want to call attention to their bodies. They're lawyers, students, teachers and moms who want to look and feel better while they're out and about. Breast augmentation is a highly personal decision, and as a woman I can understand and identify with that."
–Dr. Camille Cash

Many Reasons for Choosing Breast Augmentation

Here are some compelling examples of women who have visited Dr. Cash for breast augmenation:

  • A mom with 3 kids, a regular minivan mom, came to talk to Dr. Cash about a tummy tuck and decided to get breast implants as well, to fill her post-childbirth empty skin back up. After surgery, the patient told Dr. Cash her procedure had a huge impact on her intimate life with her husband. She was amazed!
  • A trial lawyer told Dr. Cash that since her breast enlargement she feels a little more confident each time she steps into court in her business suits.
  • A 68-year-old woman had breast enlargement just in time for her 50th high school reunion.

Dr. Cash believes these positive effects are partially due to the women's new, more appealing shapes; but, the main impact is on how the women feel about themselves. "It's wonderful to see them feeling so self-assured and empowered," she says.

Breast Augmentation with Dr. Cash

Breast augmentation is one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries Dr. Cash performs. The procedure not only enlarges the breasts, it creates a more proportionate physique and restores fullness that can be lost after pregnancy, nursing or weight loss. The procedure is surprisingly straightforward, causes just moderate discomfort and involves a fairly smooth recovery for most people. Dr. Cash's patients report a very high level of satisfaction after breast enlargement surgery and find that their self-confidence and body image is greatly improved.

Dr. Cash offers a variety of choices when it comes to breast implants. Several factors, including your unique anatomy, choice of implants and size, will determine which incision Dr. Cash will use. Some women have circumareolar incisions (around the nipple) with corresponding scars that are nearly undetectable after surgery. Others require incisions below the fold of the breast, where scars will be hidden beneath the breast itself. Dr. Cash also performs transaxillary breast augmentation, which places the incision in the patient's underarm and leaves no scars on the breast itself.

Many of Dr. Cash's younger patients at her Houston practice ask whether breast augmentation will interfere with their ability to breastfeed. Dr. Cash is happy to tell these women that the presence of breast implants doesn't typically affect breastfeeding. If you and Dr. Cash select an incision that doesn't involve the nipple, such as the popular inframammary fold option, it's likely that you'll have no trouble breastfeeding in the future. Additionally, the presence of saline or silicone implants doesn't affect the safety, quality, or quantity of the milk you produce. If you have further concerns about breastfeeding or other activities after surgery, Dr. Cash encourages you to share your concerns when you meet.

During your consultation, Dr. Cash will listen to your priorities and take time to ensure you understand your choices. She will also educate you about the risks of breast augmentation surgery and answer all the questions you have. Then you and she can create a surgical plan together.

Candidates for Breast Augmentation

The best candidates for breast augmentation are women who are otherwise relatively content with their bodies and who just want to add that finishing touch. Breast implants can:

  • Give you more ample breasts than you were born with
  • Recreate your pre-pregnancy bustline
  • Help balance a figure that's out of proportion
  • Have a positive effect on your overall outlook on life

It's important to understand that breast augmentation will not change your looks dramatically nor solve any general issues you may have.

You also should be generally healthy, preferably a non-smoker, and ready to follow your doctor's instructions for recovery and beyond. This includes being prepared to deal with the possibility of implant rupture, which does occur in a fraction of cases.

Breast Augmentation Surgery & Recovery

Dr. Cash most often performs breast augmentation as outpatient surgery at the St. Joseph Medical Center downtown. She uses general anesthesia for the procedure, which usually takes 1 to 2 hours.

Working through the incisions, Dr. Cash will create implant pockets either directly behind your breast tissue or behind the chest muscle. She'll position your implants carefully in place, then suture your incision closed. An hour or two after your procedure you'll be up, walking around and ready to go home or to a recovery center to rest.

Your breasts will feel sore and tight for a few days following your procedure. Most patients characterize the discomfort as tolerable. You will be given prescription pain medication to use if needed; cold compresses can also help. You will probably feel able to return to work and low impact activities in a few days to a week, but you will still have some swelling for a bit longer. And you'll need to refrain from vigorous exercise for a few weeks.
