Augmentation

Congratulations on taking the first step toward the new you! Did you know that breast augmentation carries a nearly 95% patient satisfaction. At The Artisan Center, our patients have raved about the positive changes in their life-from improved self-confidence to the freedom to wear (and feel comfortable) in clothing they had avoided before. Breast Augmentation is the number one plastic surgical procedure nationwide and, at The Artisan Center, we have performed this operation on patients ranging in age from 19 to 64. You have questions, we have answers. First and foremost, we believe that our responsibility is to provide you with unbiased information so that you can make the best decision for yourself. We have sample implants, pictures, testimonials, and the experience in sizing that you deserve. We are proud to offer Allergan Natrelle breast implants. This line of implants offers far more choices in size (both diameter and projection) than their competitors. They are also backed by one of the biggest names in medicine with millions of dollars in research and development. As an Allergan Partner Privaleges Gold Member, Dr. Rodgers does more Natrelle breast augmentations than anyone in Katy. Trust in his experience and dedication to educating his patients.

About the Surgery

Breast augmentation takes about 1 and a half hours and is done on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia. The scarring is minimal-just about a 4cm (2-inch) incision under the breast, around the nipple, or in the armpit (Dr. Rodgers will discuss the benefits and draw-backs of each choice). From there, the space f or your new implants is delicately created. Dr. Rodgers strongly believes in the dual-plane augmentation-where the upper portion of the implant is placed beneath your pectoralis (chest) muscle and the lower portion is positioned directly under your breast tissue for enhanced projection. Recovery varies somewhat between patients but most of Dr. Rodgers’ augmentation patients have surgery on Thursday and are back to work by Monday with only minimal discomfort. Expect mild swelling and bruising that gradually fades over about 2 weeks. Implants may appear ‘high’ for the first couple of weeks but will be completely natural looking in about a month.
