Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation is the cornerstone of Dr. Philip Straka's practice, making up a large percentage of the procedures he performs and therefore giving him a wealth of experience in the field of cosmetic breast enhancement that greatly benefits his patients.

Our plastic surgeon is highly regarded for his breast augmentation technique, attracting patients from not only the Houston area, but from throughout the country as well.

Dr. Straka's breast augmentation technique typically utilizes very short incisions and a gentle approach, resulting in little to no bruising, minimum swelling and an easier recovery. Typically, with Dr. Straka's gentle technique, no drainage tubes are necessary. Implant and incision choices are tailored to each individual patient's unique goals and physique.

Saline and Silicone Breast Implants

There are a number of decisions to be carefully considered during the breast augmentation procedure, including the type of implant and implant shape and size that will provide patients with the cosmetic outcome they desire. Because of the importance of this decision, Dr. Straka works with each patient to develop an individual treatment plan designed to achieve the safest and most successful breast enhancement possible.

At our Houston plastic surgery practice, patients can choose between saline breast implants and silicone gel implants, which both have distinct advantages that will be addressed during the initial consultation.

Saline breast implants are filled with a saline solution with an outer silicone shell. These implants have been safely used for decades to add volume to the breasts and correct any breast asymmetries. They are approved by the U. S. Food and Drug Administration for use in patients age 18 and older, and can provide beautiful results.

Silicone breast implants have a silicone outer shell and are filled with a thick, medical grade form of silicone. Reapproved by the FDA in 2006, silicone breast implants can be used in patients 22 and older. Many of Dr. Straka’s patients choose silicone implants because they typically feel and act more like natural breast tissue.

Additionally, Dr. Straka offers three different styles of implant profiles to satisfy the varying aesthetic demands of each woman’s body type:

Dr. Straka's experienced in the use of both saline and silicone breast implants which were recently approved by the FDA. Dr. Straka serves as a principle investigator in both the Mentor and Allergan / Inamed silicone gel breast implant studies commissioned by the Food and Drug Administration.

Breast augmentation with implants is an effective way of adding volume to the breasts and creating a bustline that is more proportionate to your body frame. The procedure typically takes about two hours to complete and can be performed on an outpatient basis. Click here for Frequently Asked Questions about Breast Augmenation. Dr. Straka can combine breast augmentation with other procedures such as tummy tuck or liposuction.
