Breast augmentation surgery is not only the most common procedure performed by Houston Plastic Surgeon Dr. R. Lee Steely, but is also one of the most common cosmetic surgery procedures performed nationally. Over 300,000 were performed in 2010. The size, shape, and type of implant that is ideal for your body and goals will be determined personally by Dr. Lee Steely during your initial one-on-one consultation with the doctor.
After almost a decade of testing, silicone MemoryShape® implants were FDA approved in 2013 and offer patients another option for their breast augmentation. These shaped, or anatomical, breast implants have a decreased risk for capsular contracture according to multicenter clinical studies.
Some women require lifting of their breast tissue and nipple complex higher on their chest wall to give them the look they desire. Houston Plastic and Cosmetic Surgeon Dr. R. Lee Steely is an expert in a variety of breast lifting techniques using both the patients own tissues with or without silicone breast implants and saline breast implants.
Similar in incisions to a breast lift, breast reduction surgery reduces the size of your breasts and gives you a higher perkier look. A variety of techniques are used depending on your tissues and goals you wish to achieve.
