What You Should Know Before Your Breast Augmentation

What I Wish I'd Known Before My Breast Augmentation

When it comes to breast augmentation, our Austin practice makes it a priority to prevent any regret, remorse, or “wish I would have known” types of feelings. We have an extensive educational process: 1 hour and 15 minutes in consult, 1 hour in pre-op education, and both short-term and long-term follow up after surgery. Our …

The Facts Behind the Textured Implant Recall

Allergan recently voluntarily recalled a specific type of textured breast implant. This has resulted in breast augmentation patients calling our practice with questions about why this action was taken and what it means for them.
