Benefits of Breast Augmentation

Every woman has her own personal reasons for considering breast enlargement. These reasons often include:

  • Increasing the size of naturally small breasts
  • Restoring breast volume that was lost after having a baby or losing weight
  • Balancing the size of uneven breasts
  • Enhancing femininity and self-esteem

Augmentation With the Keller Funnel™

Our surgeons at Synergy Plastic Surgery are Keller Funnel certified. This FDA-approved device helps our surgeons insert silicone breast implants in the safest way using very small incisions. With the Keller Funnel, the implant is kept completely sterile, minimizing the chance of infection. This unique device allows for precise implant placement through much smaller incisions. It also minimizes your time in the operating room.

Your Personalized Breast Augmentation

Our surgeons provide a comfortable, unhurried setting for our patients’ initial breast enlargement consultations. Their friendly and approachable personalities help patients talk openly about their aesthetic goals and ask questions without feeling rushed. They strive to clearly understand the patients’ concerns and help them develop realistic expectations about their results.

As part of the consultation, our surgeons perform physical exams and carefully explain how they use this information to create a customized treatment plan that encompasses both a patient’s cosmetic goals and these physical details. Patients who are undergoing breast augmentation revision surgery to replace their implants will also have the chance to discuss their options for new implants during the consultation.

Breast augmentation involves a variety of decisions that our surgeons use to personalize each procedure. During the consultation, they help patients understand the advantages of each breast implant option and the various surgical techniques they use. Their expertise helps patients determine the combination that’s best suited for their bodies and cosmetic goals.

How Much Does Breast Augmentation Cost in Austin?

In general, breast augmentation patients in and around Austin, Texas, typically pay anywhere between $4,600 and $8,000, although there are always outliers. Breast augmentation does not have a set price tag because each procedure is completely customized to meet the specifications of the patient. Implant type, placement, and other factors can all affect pricing. During your consultation, your doctor provides you with a written quote that reflects your specific surgery.

Breast Implant Options

The process of choosing breast implants can be more complicated than some patients expect, which is why choosing an experienced specialist such as any of our board-certified plastic surgeons is important. The choice of breast implants is more diverse now than ever. Our surgeons help patients understand the advantages of each option.

Patients may arrive for their consultations with a specific implant size and type in mind because they like how friends or family members look after getting breast augmentation. It’s important to understand the same size and style of implants can produce completely different results in 2 different women for a variety of reasons, including:

  • Body type
  • Condition of the breast skin
  • Amount of existing breast tissue

You can schedule a breast implant “test drive” to help you with your decisions if you’re not ready for a consultation with one of our doctors. This private, informative appointment with one of our patient coordinators will give you a chance to ask questions, feel each type of implant, and try on a variety of implant sizes.

The Synergy
Difference

The Synergy Difference

  • Our doctors perform rapid recovery breast augmentation in Austin, Texas. Patients typically return to work in only a few days.

  • We offer breast implant sizing in our office using the Mentor® Volume Sizing System to help you visualize what breast implant size will look best on your body.
  • Dedicated consultation time is typically 45 minutes to 1 hour. You will always meet with a doctor during the visit.

How Do I Choose Between Silicone and Saline Breast Implants?

Both of these materials are FDA approved and have their own advantages. The best choice depends on the needs of the patient

Saline implants are filled with a sterile saltwater solution. Surgeons fill these implants after they’re placed in the implant pocket they create. This allows them to use a very small incision. In the unlikely case of a shell defect, the saline filling is harmless and is naturally absorbed by the body. Saline implants are generally a bit less expensive than silicone gel-filled implants, although the price can vary depending on a number of factors. Saline implants are approved by the FDA for use in patients 18 and older.

Silicone implants are filled with cohesive silicone gel. Highly cohesive silicone implants are sometimes called “gummy bear” implants because their gel filling has a consistency similar to the gummy candy. Many people believe silicone gel implants create a more natural-looking appearance and feel. In case of a shell defect, the cohesive silicone filling remains inside the breast capsule until it is surgically removed. Silicone implants have been approved for use in patients 22 and older.

Advanced Implant Technology: Highly cohesive silicone gel breast implants are safe and reliable. The FDA-approved implants rarely rupture and look and feel more like natural breasts than saline implants.

How Do I Choose an Implant Profile?

Implants come in 3 projections, or profiles: high, moderate, and low. Just as different sized implants suit different women, each profile may be a better fit depending on a patient’s goals. Our breast augmentation patients are able to “try on” implants of different sizes and profiles during their consultations.

Implant Profile Options

High-profile implants offer the most projection, which means they stick out farthest from the body. Because high-profile implants have a conical shape, they often look more proportionate on women with narrow frames.

Moderate-profile implants offer a medium amount of projection. Their rounded look can provide a significantly increased amount of breast volume, creating a fuller, natural-looking appearance for women with both narrow and wide frames.

Low-profile implants offer the least amount of projection but more fullness around the diameter of the breast. Low-profile implants offer a natural-looking result for patients with wide frames.

How Do I Choose the Right Size Breast Implant?

Instead of using bra sizes, doctors and other medical professionals measure breast implants using cc, or cubic centimeters. As many women know, commercial bra sizes can vary greatly from brand to brand. Using cubic centimeters allows for a much more precise, reliable measurement. Having a desired cup size in mind is a good starting point, though.

Although it’s common for prospective patients to look to celebrities and other people as inspiration for their own breast augmentations, it’s important to remember that each body is unique. What looks good on one woman may look completely different on another woman of a different height, weight, or body type. We encourage our patients to take their time with this and other decisions related to their surgeries.

Breast Augmentation Incision Options

Scarring is often a concern among cosmetic surgery patients. Though scars are inevitable in any surgery, the modern techniques the doctor uses at Synergy Plastic Surgery can greatly reduce scars’ appearance. We offer the Keller Funnel™, a device that enables your doctor to safely insert implants using very small incisions. At your consultation, be sure to ask whether the Keller Funnel is appropriate for your surgery.

Breast Augmentation Incision Site Options

Inframammary incisions are made along the breast crease, where the breast meets the torso. Because this area is naturally concealed, an inframammary scar is well hidden in clothing and swimwear. The length of this type of incision depends on the specifics of the surgery, but is usually about an 1 ¼ inch across resulting in a very favorable scar in most patients.

Periareolar incisions are made around the areola, which is the area of dark skin surrounding the nipple. Though this incision is made directly on the breast, the resulting scar often blends well with the darker skin of the areola, eventually fading enough to become nearly invisible. This incision is best suited for women with larger areolas, although it can also benefit women with smaller areolas who are receiving saline implants.

Transaxillary incisions are used less commonly and are made in the armpit. Many patients appreciate that this incision leaves the breast completely free of scars. However, because of its remote location, this incision provides the surgeon with less control and the scar can be quite visible in swim suits and tank tops.

A Reputation Built on Results

You deserve the highest caliber of service, care, and results, and at Synergy Plastic Surgery, we're committed to providing all that and more. But don't take our word for it—see for yourself what our actual patients have to say about their experiences with us.

Hopefully, I can express how absolutely pleased I’ve been with Synergy. Dr. Blagg must be the best BA surgeon in the country. I was blown away by the before and after results before I met with him. But he performed what I can only equate to a miracle on me personally. Beforehand, I met with other top surgeons in Austin, and they all truly pale in comparison to Dr. Blagg. From start to finish, he was caring and confident, arguably the two best characteristics of a surgeon, and he delivered results that exceeded every expectation. The frequent follow ups and wonderfully thoughtful nurses will make you feel more welcome than your own home. And I definitely cannot fail to mention one of the nurses in particular, Mariah Gilkey. She is a pure ray of sunshine that will shower you with so many compliments, you’ll be questioning if you even need surgery. She, specifically, made the entire experience exponentially better than I could’ve imagined. My only regret with Synergy is that, despite whatever I’ve paid them, I’ll never be able to adequately repay the life-changing results that they’ve given me. Thank you.

If I could give more stars, I would. Dr. Crawford and her team are amazing. From start to finish, everything went so well. I’m almost 4 months post of a BA, I am so happy I went with Dr. Crawford’s recommendation. She is honest, respectful of your concerns and questions and I felt extremely confident after my consultation. I am pretty petite and 265CC was a perfect fit for me! From the consultations, to surgery 10/10. I would highly recommend Synergy Plastic Surgery! Thank you Dr. Crawford for your amazing skills and personality! Thank you!

I’m super impressed with Synergy Plastic Surgery’s ability to listen and sympathize with their patients. My Patient coordinator, Margaret, has helped me tremendously with my surgery process and treats me as if I’m her own daughter. She is personable, and does everything in her power to make every patient feel taken care of. I called her struggling with some concerns of mine and she completely eased my stress and worries. My surgeon, Dr. Crawford, has a heart of gold and unmeasurable compassion. It’s truly admirable to have a doctor that is already putting so much time into her own busy job then to still dedicate time to volunteer and community work. I’ve watched her through social media change the life of children and others, and that makes me proud to call her my doctor. I’m excited to continue my surgical journey with Dr. Crawford!

I chose Synergy a few years ago to perform my breast augmentation procedure because when I was looking at their website before and after photos, not only did I like the way the patients looked after their surgeries, it was the one website that had someone monitoring the site and popped up and asked if I had any questions. They also had an awesome special running and were super nice when I called to ask for more details as several other places were not that I called. I decided to book a consultation with Dr. Ross Blagg because I watched some of his videos on the site and also on Instagram and really liked his personality and after photos. He seemed to really know what he was talking about and cared about his patients. He was the same way when I met him in person and I put the deposit down that day after our consultation. It took me almost two years to finally go through with my surgery due to life events and the pandemic, but I was finally ready in Nov 2020 and they even honored the price I was originally quoted! The nursing staff was so nice and warm when I arrived for my surgery and got me calm and ready for my surgery. I was nervous but not scared because I knew I was in good hands. The surgery was so quick and when I woke up I had very minimal pain and felt like I was ready to go within 20 minutes! The pain the next few days was no where near what I imagined it would be, and I definitely recommend this surgery with Synergy Plastic Surgery if you are feeling hesitant about breast augmentation in general. They will be the best ones to take care of you. It has been almost 4 months since my surgery now and I absolutely love my results! They are almost completely dropped now and my scars are also less apparent already! I can't wait to show them off at the beach soon!! 😀

Where to even begin in expressing how utterly happy I am to have discovered Synergy and Dr. Crawford. I recently lost 95 pounds and unfortunately was left with loose skin that could not be fixed just by working out. I requested in person consultations from 3 places, one being Synergy. I was able to schedule a free consultation with Dr. Crawford very quickly. My problem areas were my arms, stomach, legs, and breasts. Immediately within meeting Dr. Crawford, I knew she was going to be my surgeon. She was extremely thorough, listened to what I was wanting to achieve, but was also very kind and empathic. Walking out of the appointment I did tell them full disclosure I wanted to at least follow through with my other consultations, but I knew I was going to choose Dr. Crawford. My other consultations did not give me that same connection and warmth, and their pricing was absolutely not comparable. The staff at Synergy continued to follow up with me, made sure I did not have any questions, and even told me if I went elsewhere they were happy for me. Side bar - both the Round Rock and Austin facilities are beautiful and very clean, and every single employee there is kind and courteous. It was a no brainer in ultimately deciding to choose Dr. Crawford. I opted to do a breast augmentation, tummy tuck, and arm lift and am now 2 weeks post op. The morning of surgery I got extremely nervous (which is so not normal for me) and Dr. Crawford just sat with me and let me take as much time as I needed before we proceeded with surgery - another moment in which her qualities as not only a surgeon but as a person far exceeded my expectations. Dr. Crawford has continued to follow up with me throughout these 2 weeks and I genuinely cannot express how thrilled I am with the results already. Recovery has been a breeze (I was literally walking on my own day 1), my incisions are as flawless as they can be all things considered and I accredit that to Dr. Crawford’s talent and precision. I already have this newfound sense of confidence that I lost when I had gained the weight, and even when I lost it and had to face that new body I was left with. To anyone reading this, save yourself the time and book with Dr. Crawford. The pricing is fair and less than the other places I spoke to. You are not, I repeat you are NOT going to find someone like her elsewhere. She is so genuine, and really listens and cares about her patients. Aside from being the most genuine and kind Doctor I have ever had, her work is absolutely flawless. I really cannot stress enough, even without being fully healed how amazing I look and feel. This was one of the best things I have ever done, and would do it 100 times over, with Dr. Crawford, and Dr. Crawford only. I am very much looking forward to booking my leg lift as soon as I am healed and cleared, and would never even consider another person. Dr. Crawford, thank you for everything; you have literally changed my life and are my angel. P.S - Synergy and Dr. Crawford have not asked me to leave a review. I am doing this because her talent, work, personality, just everything about her deserves this and to anyone shopping around or are on the fence, do yourself the favor and meet with her. You will not regret it!

BEST RESULTS I'VE EVER HAD! I went pensively to get Botox & fillers/lip injections at the referral of a friend who looks amazing. I have had Botox before at other places & because I have a small forehead, have ended up in tears with hooded eyes. Most of my deep wrinkles are in my forehead. My appt was with Mara & from the first moment I could tell this wasn't just a job for her. It's her passion. She listened to EVERYTHING I said (which was a lot), spent time really studying my face & clarifying what I had said I wanted to accomplish. I was adamant no drooping of my eyes but PLEASE try to get some of the wrinkles out of my forehead. And I was also very specific about my lips looking natural but filled back in. She explained everything to me, was honest about what she felt she could accomplish in one sitting & I have to tell you I am shocked & amazed at how awesome the results are!! I have received more compliments in the last few weeks about how great my skin looks, asking about my face cream, how rested I look, and how pretty my lipstick is. That tells me she did EXACTLY what I asked. Natural & subtle. And the deep wrinkles on my forehead are almost completely gone!! I cannot say enough how much I trust her with my face/skin. I am genuinely impressed with her skills & knowledge. I have referred friends who are just as picky as I am & will continue to refer people as I truly believe they will be just as pleased with their results. Thank you Mara & Synergy for taking years off my face & giving me back much needed confidence.

Where do I even begin?! I received 6 other consults throughout the U.S. for my MMO before going to Synergy. After loosing more than 120lbs, I had very unique needs but realistic expectations. Within minutes of meeting Dr. Blagg, I knew he was my surgeon! We spent nearly an hour discussing my options and ultimately coming up with a surgical plan that we both felt was best. (Not many surgeons do that!) From the consult, to pre-op, surgery and post-op, the experience was phenomenal. The day of surgery was a breeze from what I can remember lol. Dr. Blagg called me to check on me though I vaguely remember it because of the anesthesia and pain meds. My recovery was so easy. I was up and moving the next day with minimal assistance. I'm now 3 months post op and couldn't be happier with my results as they exceeded my expectations. Dr. Blagg has great bedside manner, a sense of humor and not bad on the eyes either. He is genuinely a good person and you feel that in his presence. Janice, his coordinator, is so sweet and informative. At every point of my journey, I felt safe (which is important in the current climate). I literally don't have a single bad thing to say which is unusual because I'm very critical. I'm so glad I trusted Dr. Blagg for my Mommy Makeover. I'll definitely be going back for all of my future cosmetic/plastics needs! If you're considering Synergy, do it, you won't regret it!

I cannot say enough about the Team at Synergy Plastic Surgery! From the 1st phone calls and emails with Vlasta, to the virtual consultation with Dr. Kerr, my actual surgery, and the after care, everyone and everything was A+++! I had 6 other consults with surgeons in Houston Tx where I had my first augmentation and none of them even came close to the customer service and care Synergy provided. I went in for an implant exchange. I was so scared! It wasn't exciting for me like it was the 1st time in my early 20s lol!! But rest assured, the Synergy team did everything to make me feel SO comfortable! My pre op nurse, Tiffany was THE BEST! She administered the IV needle which was my biggest fear. Normally I would've cried and begged for the person to stop. I didn't even feel a thing! Carol administered the anesthesia and once again...I didn't feel a thing! Dr. Kerr gave me exactly what I asked for and I'm so thankful. I didn't even have a single bruise. If you're looking for the best pros in the business to give you gorgeous results AND quality customer care, Synergy is the place! Thank yall!

What Is the Best Placement for Breast Implants?

Breast implants can be placed either under or over the chest muscle (pectoralis). Most of our patients choose the submuscular placement (under the muscle) because it can achieve a highly natural look, especially for women who have little breast tissue to start. Submuscular placement can has a short recovery period, and this placement comes with a slightly lower risk of capsular contracture, a rare complication of breast augmentation.

Your doctor will guide you through each of these choices, providing the knowledge you need to feel confident in your decisions.

Which Procedures Can be Combined With Breast Enlargement Surgery?

Women concerned about their breasts sagging, in addition to lack of volume, often consider combining breast augmentation with a breast lift to create firm, sculpted breast contours. For a comprehensive transformation, many women choose a Mommy Makeover. This customized combination of procedures is individually designed to improve multiple trouble spots in a single surgery.

How Long Should I Take Off Work After Breast Augmentation?

Patients who follow our plastic surgeons’ postoperative instructions typically only need about 3 to 4 days off work. The advanced techniques our surgeons use help shorten the duration of recovery and minimize discomfort after breast augmentation. For example, using the Keller Funnel™ enables our doctors to make smaller incisions and results in less trauma to the tissue during the procedure. That means our patients usually have less bruising and soreness.

It’s important to move around even on the day of the surgery to enhance the healing process by promoting good circulation. Swelling and bruising gradually resolve over the first couple of weeks.

Common Questions About Breast Augmentation

How does fat transfer breast augmentation work?

Fat is removed from one area of the body using liposuction, then purified and carefully injected into the breasts. Our surgeons offer fat transfer as an alternative to implants for women who want a natural but modest increase in breast size. This technique is often used to enhance the breast shape during breast augmentation with implants.

Can breast augmentation correct asymmetrical breasts?

Absolutely. In fact, breast asymmetry is a common reason patients cite for undergoing the procedure. For these patients, our doctors use implants of different sizes, carefully measuring and evaluating to ensure accurate results.

How long do I need to sleep on my back after a breast augmentation?

Our doctors typically advise patients to sleep on their backs for a few weeks after surgery to ensure favorable healing and an attractive, symmetrical shape. For women who are accustomed to sleeping on their sides or stomachs, this adjustment can be challenging. It’s a good idea to begin the practice several days before surgery in order to train your body. Many patients also find it more comfortable to support their limbs with pillows. This helps them fall asleep and also prevents them from shifting positions throughout the night.

How long after breast augmentation surgery can I exercise?

Most patients are ready to resume strenuous activities within 4 to 6 weeks of surgery. Light activity, such as walking, helps the healing process and may be done as soon as you feel ready. It’s also important to avoid exercises specifically targeting the chest muscles, such as push-ups. Other muscle-building exercises should be fine.

Can I still breastfeed after getting breast implants?

In most cases, yes. If you are concerned about breastfeeding, incisions should be made where the breasts connect to the chest (inframammary incisions.) That said, plenty of patients with nipple incisions (periareolar) are able to breastfeed. Regardless of where the incisions are made, it’s definitely safe to breastfeed with implants, which will not affect the milk.

How long will it take for my breasts to look natural after breast augmentation?

It generally takes about 2 to 3 months for implants to soften and drop into a more natural-looking position. Most patients are thrilled with the results after 6 weeks, but your appearance will continue to improve. Massaging your implants for at least the first 3 to 6 months after surgery can help settle the implants sooner and keep the breast capsule open and soft.

Will I ever need new breast implants?

Both saline and silicone breast implants are more durable than ever. Still, they are not designed to last forever. Each patient’s situation must be assessed on a case-by-case basis, but implants generally are meant to last 10 to 15 years. If you’re thinking about replacing your implants, you’ll find more information on our breast augmentation revision page.

Does breast augmentation lift the breasts?

Breast augmentation surgery may slightly elevate your breasts, but not to the same degree as a breast lift. Many women combine implants with breast lift surgery, especially after pregnancy and breastfeeding. One of the first issues our doctors consider when a patient comes in for a breast augmentation consultation is whether a breast lift is needed to complete the breast rejuvenation.

As experienced breast surgery specialists, our doctors explain to their patients why relying on breast implants to elevate sagging breasts isn’t recommended. Implants add volume to the breasts, but may actually cause breasts with skin laxity to sag even more.

Is it better to have implants placed above or below the pectoral muscles?

Each woman is different, but most surgeons in the U.S. using modern techniques would advise you have a submuscular augmentation. Implants above the muscle are sometimes more visible, and studies show they may have a higher risk for capsular contracture.

Do breast implants interfere with mammograms?

Breast implants can make performing and reading mammograms more technically difficult. However, placement of the implant underneath the pectoral muscle may interfere less with mammographic examination. Additionally, breast augmentation surgery is so common that virtually all radiologists are experienced at reading mammograms for patients who have implants.

How important is a breast implant’s texture?

If you’ve been researching breast augmentation, you may know that breast implants are available with smooth or textured surfaces. Some patients and doctors prefer smooth implants because they feel a bit softer than their textured counterparts and move more freely within the breast capsule for a more natural effect. Textured implants do not move as freely because breast tissue adheres to the surface, which is a benefit for patients with teardrop-shaped implants that should not rotate.

In the past, the medical community collectively believed that textured implants lowered a patient’s risk of capsular contracture, an uncommon complication that occurs when augmented breasts develop an excessive amount of scar tissue. However, today’s advanced techniques have allowed surgeons to lower the incidence of capsular contracture in other ways.

What are some things I can do to make my breast augmentation recuperation more comfortable?

Your doctor provides you with an extensive list of guidelines to ensure a successful surgery and recovery. However, there are some easy things you can do to ensure you’re as comfortable and prepared as possible:

  • Have your prescriptions filled prior to surgery. After your procedure, you likely won’t feel like going to the pharmacy and waiting for your order to be filled. Instead, have your prescriptions completed in advance so that you can go straight home after your procedure.
  • Stock up on comfortable clothing. Have plenty of button-up or zip-up tops to wear around the house for the first few days after your breast augmentation. You won’t be able to pull shirts on over your head during this time.
  • Enlist a trusted friend or family member to help with childcare, housekeeping, and errands for the first few days. Although you’ll be up and about fairly soon after surgery, you’ll need help with activities that require you to bend, lift heavy objects, or drive.

The number of options available for people considering breast augmentation can be overwhelming. Many decisions must be made prior to surgery. Though these choices are ultimately up to the patient, our surgeons are happy to offer their guidance and expertise during this important part of the process.
