Everything You Need to Know About Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation, or resizing and reshaping of the breast, is one of the most common and popular procedures done by Dr. Hobar today. He prides himself in his “No Breast Scar” breast augmentation technique, meaning there are no visible scars on the breast after surgery. This approach, along with his 26 years of expertise makes him stand out as one of the top choices in Dallas plastic surgeons. Whether your desire is for a larger breast size, different breast shape, or tuberous breast correction, Dr. Hobar’s goal is to create a breast that is natural looking and complimentary to your specific body.

What Decision Do Dr. Hobar and I Need to Make?

What to Expect From Start To Finish:

The first step is scheduling a consult with Dr. Hobar. In select situations, Dr. Hobar can provide an online consultation, in which you securely submit your information and photos and Dr. Hobar will give you an initial opinion. Together you and him will assess your desires and body type to determine if you are a good candidate for breast augmentation. Dr. Hobar will discuss the options you have and allow you to feel the different implant types. After the consult, Dawna our practice manager, will discuss cost, how to prepare for surgery, and surgery scheduling. Pre-operative photos will also be taken in the clinic for use of Dr. Hobar on the day of surgery. He performs surgery at Baylor Surgicare North Dallas under LMA anesthesia (your asleep but don’t have a breathing tube through your vocal cords), and typically blocks out around an hour and a half for the procedure. The procedure usually takes about 40 minutes, but Dr. Hobar always blocks out extra time. He has been working with the same surgical team for more than 15 years. After surgery, you will be discharged that day and can typically resume light activity the same day. The implant is typically placed behind the pectoral muscle, and while the muscle stretches to accommodate the implant there is some discomfort. Placing the implant under the muscle, in Dr. Hobar’s opinion, makes the implant look and feel more natural, puts less stress on the skin over time, and preserves the reliability of a mammogram. Muscle relaxants are prescribed to help with the accommodation process, as well as pain relievers to make you as comfortable as possible. Dr. Hobar recommends the patient resumes light exercise after about a week in order to speed up the recovery process. You will be seen a week following the surgery to discuss massaging and exercises to ensure the proper position of the implant.

With more than 25 years of experience and over 1500 breast augmentations, Dr. Hobar has the experience, ability, artistic eye, compassion, and results you are looking for. If you are considering a breast augmentation, please visit our website and
