Many women seek breast augmentation with breast implants to increase the size of their breasts; others wish to restore lost volume after pregnancy or weight loss; still others desire to achieve a well-balanced, proportionate figure. At Hermosa Plastic Surgery, Dr. Miguel Gallegos provides natural-looking breast augmentation to help patients in El Paso and throughout New Mexico make their goals a reality.

The Breast Augmentation Consultation

Dr. Gallegos has earned a reputation for providing breast enhancement treatments that are safe, personalized, and effective. During a breast augmentation consultation, Dr. Gallegos listens carefully to his patient’s aesthetic goals. He takes the time to educate each patient about her best treatment options to ensure the most realistic expectations and naturally beautiful results.

The Breast Enlargement Procedure

Breast augmentation is a highly individualized procedure for patients of our El Paso-area practice; therefore, the exact treatment each patient receives depends on a number of factors, including her aesthetic goals, physical features, and health history. The placement of the breast implants is decided upon prior to surgery. Most often, Dr. Gallegos suggests placing the implants beneath the chest muscle, since this location typically produces the most natural looking results.

Breast Augmentation Recovery and Results

After breast augmentation, patients may experience swelling and discomfort. When recommended by Dr. Gallegos, compression garments and massage can be used to help dissipate the swelling. Patients can return to work within one week but should limit their activity for at least three weeks and postpone strenuous exercise regimens for at least three months. Typically, it takes approximately eight weeks for results to become fully apparent.
