average cost of breast reduction in dallastexas

The average cost of breast reduction in Dallas, Texas is $6,500. This is based on the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) national average.

It’s important to note that this can vary depending on the number of areas being treated and the extent of your condition. Some things that can add to this cost include: Any anesthesia fees or operating room costs if you choose to have the surgery performed at a facility instead of a doctor’s office.

What is Breast Reduction Surgery?

Breast reduction surgery reduces the size of breasts by removing fat and skin from them. The result is a smaller, more proportionate bustline, which usually means less back pain and better fitting clothes! Also known as reduction mammaplasty, it may also improve self-esteem in women who feel self-conscious about their large breasts.

Breast reduction surgery removes excess fat from the breasts and reshapes them so they’re smaller than before—but not too small! This can help with back pain and make finding clothes easier for people who have large chests compared to their body size (i.e., DDD cup sizes). It’s also used when someone wants to change their appearance by making their chest look smaller than before

Breast augmentation has become a very popular operation in Dallas, TX. In fact, it has become one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures in the United States at about 300,000 cases each year. The average cost of a breast augmentation depends on your market. In Dallas, TX, the average cost is between $6000 and $9000.

The items Items that contribute to the cost of breast augmentation surgery in Dallas are the plastic surgeon’s professional fees, operating room fees, anesthesiologist fees, and implants. The cost of implants can change depending on the style. For instance, the Allergan Cohesive implant is more expensive than the Allergan Soft Touch. The Sientra 106 and 107 gels (more cohesive) are more expensive than the Sientra 105 gel.

When planned and performed correctly, breast augmentation can have a huge impact on a woman’s self-image and confidence. It cannot be emphasized enough that to achieve an excellent outcome the surgery must be planned with careful attention to the patient’s tissue and skin quality. Dr. Dauwe is fellowship trained in aesthetic breast surgery and has experience focused in breast augmentation techniques. He has helped men and women from Dallas and throughout Texas look and feel their best.

To take the first step in enhancing your breasts, please contact us online or call 214-821-6580 to schedule your breast augmentation consultation at our Dallas plastic surgery practice. We have patients travel to us from all over Texas, including Abilene, Waco, Irving, Frisco, Arlington and Fort Worth.

1. Implant Size
The ideal implant size is determined by the width of your chest, quantity of breast tissue, quality of your skin, and your individual goals. These variables will be measured and discussed with you during your consultation.

2. Scar location
Breast augmentation can be performed through the fold beneath your breast (IMF incision), through your armpit (trans-Axillary), or along the bottom of your areola (peri-areolar). This decision can be refined by discussion of the pros and cons with Dr. Dauwe, but ultimately, scar location should be determined by your preference. We will apply our multimodal scar management protocol to keep your scars as discreet as possible.

3. Implant Location
The implant is placed either below the muscle (sub-muscular) or on top of the muscle (sub-fascial). In patients with little breast tissue, placement below the muscle is preferable to reduce implant visibility. Placement above the muscle is preferable in very muscular patients (body builders) to reduce movement of the implants with contraction of the chest muscles.

4. Implant Type and/or Fat Transfer
Silicone and saline implants are both available and provide excellent aesthetics in breast augmentation. The majority of breast implants placed today are silicone because these devices have seen major technological advances in the last two decades. These refinements have enhanced the natural feel and the natural shape of the breast, and prevent visible rippling, which is commonly seen with saline implants.

Breast augmentation can also be performed with fat transfer after liposuction. Liposuction is performed on your trunk or thighs and this fat is transferred to your breasts. While this technique provides the most natural result, it is limited in the size of breast that can be achieved. The benefit of this technique is enhancement of body shape from the liposuction.

Can I get implants and fat transfer at the same time?
Absolutely. This is called a composite breast augmentation and can lead to excellent natural results.

Breast Augmentation Recovery & Results
The recovery for breast augmentation is 24 hours. Dr. Dauwe’s patients go home the same day as surgery, take a nap to recover from anesthesia, and are encouraged to stay mobile after surgery. You may shower after 24 hours, and if you are feeling up to it, you may go out to dinner the night of the surgery. Dr. Dauwe’s patients often return to work in Dallas, Texas at approximately 3-4 days after surgery.

Results after breast augmentation should be assessed after the swelling has resolved and the implants have ‘settled’ into position. You can expect an enhanced size, shape, and proportionality of your breasts to your body.

Procedure Length
Breast augmentation takes 1 hour. Fat transfer to the breasts takes about 2 hours because it requires liposuction too.

General Anesthesia

Side Effects
Discomfort for 24 hours.
Swelling and bruising.
Temporary changes in sensation of your breast skin or nipple.

Exercise and Activity
Exercises will begin immediately after surgery to enhance recovery. Return to mild exercise is encouraged at 3 weeks, and more vigorous upper body exercise is encouraged at 6 weeks.

After your surgery, you then pay CareCredit in monthly installments based on your amount financed and term duration. Some of the plans include 0% interest meaning you don’t pay anything extra beyond the total cost of the surgery. If you are interested, this is an option available to help lessen the financial burden.

You can plug in your procedure price into the CareCredit Calculator to estimate your monthly payments for several different payment terms
