Shreveport Breast Augmentation
Breast augmentation, or breast enlargement, is a surgical procedure that can be used to not only increase, but enhance the size and shape of your breasts. This works to give you the physical appearance you desire, as well as boost your self-confidence and self-esteem. In addition, this procedure often makes it easier for women to wear certain styles of clothing and outfits that may not have been as flattering before.
What women are the best candidates for breast augmentation?
- Those who feel insecure about the small cup size of their breasts
- Those who have suffered a loss of breast size after nursing
- Those who are dealing with the symptoms of aging
- Those whose breasts are two different, distinct sizes
- Those whose breasts have changed shape or size due to weight loss
No matter what reasons you believe breast augmentation is a procedure that would benefit you, our team at The Plastic Surgery Center can go over your case and help you maintain realistic expectations and goals. All those who wish to undergo augmentation should be in good physical health with no conflicting medical conditions.
What is involved in the breast augmentation procedure?
During this surgical procedure, Dr. Wall will make an incision in the armpit, around the areola, or even underneath the breast and create a pocket under the breast tissue for an implant. He will then place it inside, positioning it in a manner that gives the best cosmetic results. These silicone shells can be filled with either saline or silicone gel, both of which have been approved by the FDA.
You can rest assured knowing that Dr. Wall always strives to create an incision that leaves inconspicuous and subtle scarring. Once you are finished, we will give you full instructions on postoperative care and limitations. This will help your procedure be as successful as possible and allow for the fastest recovery. You can expect to most likely return to work within just a few days if there are no complications.

Breast Reduction in Shreveport
Breast reduction can actually be a very helpful surgery for women who have large, potentially sagging breasts. Many times, these issues can create neck, back, and shoulder pain for women. Through reduction, they can better enjoy their lives and find relief from pain and self-esteem hindrances. While patients of all ages may undergo breast reduction, it is recommended that you wait until your breasts have fully developed or have no intention to breast-feed.
Best Breast Reduction Candidates
Think you are a candidate for breast reduction? You may be if you have:
- Excessive pain in your neck or back due to large breasts
- Breasts that are disproportionate to your body size
- Difficulty with exercising or physical activities due to breast size
- Asymmetry in breasts, with one being much larger
Breast Reduction Procedure
The breast reduction surgery is very simple, with fatty tissue, glandular tissue, and excess skin being removed to allow for the breast to be pulled tighter. This creates a lighter, firmer appearance and feel. You will need to make sure you follow Dr. Wall’s instruction for postoperative recovery in the days after and will likely be healed and able to engage in regular activities in just two to three weeks!
Even if you were confident in your physical appearance at a younger age, time can take a toll on even the most anatomically perfect individuals. Pregnancy, weight loss, nursing, and even unavoidable gravity can all contribute to the sagging appearance of a woman’s breasts. While this can be frustrating, a simple breast lift can easily correct this condition and restore that natural and youthful firmness.
The best candidates for breast lifts include:
- Mothers who nursed multiple children
- Older women who have noticed less firmness
- Healthy, stable women with grounded expectations
- Those seeking to regain a youthful appearance
- Women who have sagging breasts due to loss of skin elasticity
For those women who plan to have more children in the future or are still uncertain, it is best to hold off on undergoing any surgery until fully ready, as pregnancy and breast-feeding can take away from the surgical results. Those who do proceed with this surgery should be aware that there may be complications or side effects, such as scars, infection, changes in feeling in the nipple or breast, and other issues.
Dr. Wall can meet with you and discuss your goals and desired results and help you determine if a breast lift is the best option for your situation.
