Breast Augmentation by Dr. Wilder in Austin
Breast augmentation is one of the most popular procedures in Dr. Wilder’s practice. Patients from Austin and surrounding areas come to Dr. Wilder for breast augmentation because of his exceptional training as well as his remarkable artistic eye. His patients often refer to him as an “artist”. He did his residency at the world renowned Cronin, Brauer & Biggs Clinic under Dr. Cronin, the inventor of the breast implant. Dr. Wilder’s goal is to help women achieve a very natural look. In fact, the majority of our Austin breast augmentation patients just want to be more proportional.
About Breast Augmentation
Breast augmentation surgery refers to the enhancement of the breasts with an implant. Some women have breasts that never developed satisfactorily, while others have lost fullness as the result of pregnancy or weight loss. The procedure increases the fullness and projection of the breasts providing a more proportional figure. It can also help correct breast asymmetry. It is usually done on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia. Dr. Wilder performs his procedures at Austin Surgical Hospital, a very private award winning hospital for outstanding medical care.
There are four decisions that the patient will be involved in making:
- Type of implant (silicone vs. saline)
- Incision site (under the breast, around the areola, or in the axilla)
- Placement of implant (under the pectoral muscle or directly behind the breast tissue, over the pectoral muscle)
At your consultation, Dr. Wilder will make recommendations based on his examination, and will help you decide on the best approach for you.
Are You a Breast Augmentation Candidate?
Women in Austin or the surrounding area who desire larger breasts, or who have one breast that is noticeably smaller than the other, are candidates for breast augmentation surgery. Patients that have minimal sagging with loss of volume may be good candidates for augmentation alone. However, severely drooping breasts may require a breast lift (mastopexy), which can be done in conjunction with a breast augmentation.
Ideal candidates for breast augmentation in Austin include those who:
- Have small or under developed breasts
- Have minimal sagging in the breasts with a loss of volume
- Are in good overall health and at a reasonable weight
- Are at least 18 years of age
- Have realistic expectations
