As you age, your breasts tend to lose the high, perky position they held in your youth. Life changes such as pregnancy or weight loss can also affect your breasts; they can lose volume and shape.

Patients wondering about breast augmentation cost in McKinney, TX put their trust in the technical skills and experience of board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Naveen Setty. Dr. Setty is a Realself “Top Doctor” and believes strongly in delivering high quality results to his patients.

McKinney Plastic Surgery: A Before and After Breast Augmentation & Lift
A breast lift and augmentation can improve the fullness and skin laxity of the breasts at the same time. If you’re not sure what your goals are for your breast augmentation and lift, during your consultation Dr. Setty can show you before and after photos of previous patients who have had the surgery performed.
In these photos you’ll see a 36-year-old woman who received a bilateral breast augmentation and lift with 415 cc IDEAL IMPLANTS. The “after” photos were taken 12 months after surgery and she continues to be happy with her results.
Why Choose the IDEAL IMPLANT?
Since the IDEAL IMPLANT is still relatively new (approved by the FDA and Health Canada in 2014), some McKinney plastic surgery patients don’t know much about it. One of the main reasons this implant was designed, was to give women the natural look and feel of silicone gel with the safety of only saline inside. Though traditional, unstructured saline implants tend to wrinkle or ripple, the IDEAL IMPLANT is supported internally by a series of nested shells, which gives the implant a unique structure. The saline is held in place by this structure which results in a smooth, beautiful implant that feels and looks natural. For patients who are worried about breast augmentation cost in McKinney, TX, the price of the IDEAL IMPLANT may be only about $500 more than silicone gel implants, and because the IDEAL IMPLANT is inserted into the breast pocket empty, it requires a smaller incision than silicone gel implants.
Dr. Setty says, “Most women come in with slight breast asymmetries, and silicone gel implants come pre-filled, so sometimes you can’t find that exact size that you need for each breast to give a more symmetrical result. With the IDEAL IMPLANT, I have the ability to adjust the fill volume and make the breasts more symmetrical overall. That’s a nice thing from a surgical standpoint.”
No Silent Rupture Concerns with IDEAL IMPLANT
If you had a rupture in your breast implants, wouldn’t you want to know about it? McKinney plastic surgery patients who choose silicone gel implants can experience a “silent rupture,” where a break or tear in the implant occurs, but they don’t know it’s there until weeks, months, or even years later. In a 2017 independent survey of 933 women, 98% of women reported they would be somewhat concerned to constantly concerned about silent rupture with silicone gel implants.
Dr. Setty says, “A lot of women are concerned about monitoring silicone gel implants for silent rupture, which you don’t have to do with the IDEAL IMPLANT.” The IDEAL IMPLANT has two separate chambers that hold the saline filler, and if part of your implant ruptures, the implant will deflate slightly. You can look in the mirror and see the rupture immediately. Unlike ruptures with a silicone gel implant, where sticky silicone gel can leak into the body tissues, the only thing entering your body from a ruptured IDEAL IMPLANT is a sterile saline solution that is absorbed safely without any health risks. This 8-year study shows that only 2.1% of patients with the IDEAL IMPLANT for primary augmentation even experienced a rupture in their implants, while silicone gel implants had much higher rupture rates.
Long-term Breast Augmentation Cost in McKinney, TX
You may be wondering, if a rupture is silent, then how do women with silicone gel implants ever find them? The FDA recommends that a woman with silicone gel implants should get an MRI scan three years after surgery, and every two years after that to check for ruptures. These MRIs are not covered by insurance, which means the money comes out of your pocket. These MRIs cost hundreds to thousands of dollars, which results in a larger long-term cost for silicone gel implants. McKinney plastic surgery patients who pick the IDEAL IMPLANT don’t have to worry about paying for expensive MRIs. They can have confidence their implants are intact every day with a quick glance in the mirror.
Another thing to consider before selecting implants for your breast augmentation, is how many future surgeries you may have down the road. For example, Dr. Setty says replacing a ruptured silicone gel implant can take an hour or more, depending on the severity of the rupture:
“If the silicone gel has spread everywhere, it could be even longer than that. We have to be much more cognizant in removing all the scar tissue and making sure we get all that silicone gel out, so it definitely adds at least an hour. From a recovery standpoint, it will add more time also because of having to remove that scar tissue and aggressive moving of the surrounding tissues. So cleaning up a silent rupture in a silicone gel implant definitely makes it more difficult at the time of surgery as well as afterwards.”
Most surgeons recommend that women with silicone gel implants replace them every 10 years, because the risk of rupture goes up the longer they stay in. So, if you select silicone gel implants, it’s important to consider the long term costs of both routine MRIs and breast implant revision surgeries you may need in the future. With the IDEAL IMPLANT, there’s no need to worry about the 10-year rule. The implants can be left in as long as you’re still happy with them. If a breast implant revision surgery is needed, Dr. Setty says “it’s a straightforward and simple process.” IDEAL IMPLANTS can be swapped out with new ones without having to worry about cleaning out any silicone gel.
