Breast Augmentation in Plano, TX
If you’re looking for breast augmentation in Plano, Frisco, or the greater Dallas metro area, visit Dr. Wilcox at the Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery Center of Texas. As a highly skilled and experienced board-certified plastic surgeon, he can help you make your aesthetic goals a reality!
Every woman has an internal view of their self-image. A woman’s breasts are defining features of her body. Oftentimes, our mind’s eye and the reality of the breast contour, shape, and size are much different. Some women are satisfied with their natural breasts. However, for others, their breasts can create a negative body image. For some women, surgery provides an option in achieving an aesthetically pleasing appearance to the chest.
Augmentation mammoplasty is a surgical procedure designed to enhance breast size and shape. For those in Dallas, breast augmentation can be thoroughly discussed with Dr. Wilcox, who can help you choose the right implants for your body and specific breast augmentation objectives.
Dallas, Frisco, McKinney and Plano breast augmentation patients can choose between saline and silicone gel breast implants. They will also need to consider their options with incision locations (through the areola, under the breast crease, or under the armpit), and placement type (behind of or in front of the muscle).
When choosing the breast implants for your breast enhancement surgery, you should consider:
- Type (silicone-gel or saline)
- Texture (smooth or textured)
- Placement (above or beneath the chest muscle)
- Insertion (through the nipple, under arm, belly button, or crease beneath the breast)
Selecting the implant that is best suited for you can lead to a satisfying breast augmentation experience.
Some questions to ask during a breast augmentation consultation:
- What size would be appropriate for me? How do I decide?
- How long is the recovery period?
- What are the risks associated with this procedure?
- What are the differences in incision types?
- What type of breast implants should I choose?
- What will be the total cost of this procedure?
- What should I expect post-surgery?
- What are the risks/benefits of this procedure?
During an initial consultation with Dr. Wilcox, you can have all of your questions answered in a professional manner. All of our procedures are performed in our state-licensed surgical facility located in Plano, Texas. Contact the Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery Center of Texas to schedule a consultation with Dr. Wilcox to find out if you are a good candidate for breast augmentation.
The IDEAL IMPLANT®
Dr. Wilcox is now offering the IDEAL IMPLANT as an additional option for breast augmentation. This new, saline-filled implant has a round, smooth surface that looks and feels similar to silicone gel implants, yet it was developed to provide women an alternative to the original saline-filled implants or silicone gel-filled implants. The IDEAL IMPLANT is structured with two separate chambers for holding the saline filler, creating a safe, natural-looking and feeling breast implant option for women seeking to feel more confident.
Benefits of IDEAL IMPLANT
- Dual chamber is another option to the traditional saline implants that only a few practices can offer
- Looks and feels like a silicone gel implant
- Integrity of the implant is reassured just by looking in the mirror
When considering augmentation mammoplasty, patients should be fully informed of their options, benefits and risks. Call the Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery Center of Texas for more information regarding the IDEAL IMPLANT and other breast implant options.
Experience the Mental and Emotional Benefits of Breast Augmentation
Breast augmentation can offer mental and emotional benefits when it improves the breasts’ appearance. Likewise, surgery to reconstruct breast shape after mastectomy, or to enhance a deficit in breast size after pregnancy or breastfeeding, can provide tremendous improvement in self-image.
Breast augmentation, also known as “augmentation mammoplasty”, is a surgical procedure to enlarge breasts through the placement of breast implants. Whether performed to achieve a woman’s personal goal of larger breasts, or to restore breasts to pre-pregnancy size and shape or breasts lost to mastectomy or injury, Dr. Wilcox will be happy to meet with you to discuss the options available.
As the decision to have breast augmentation is a very personal choice, each woman must decide for herself if the benefits of implants will accomplish her goals and if the risks and possible complications are acceptable to her. A consultation with Dr. Wilcox of the Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery Center of Texas is designed to discuss your goals, evaluate your individual case and fully educate you about your surgery. In addition, the variety of options available and the likely outcomes, risks and potential complications will be thoroughly explained during your consultation.

Breast Augmentation Procedure
Although our detailed procedure page features before and after breast augmentation photos to help you visualize potential results, more can be learned about breast implant surgery during an initial consultation with Dr. Wilcox.
Crease incision (“inframammary fold”): Currently one of the most common incision sites used by Dr. Wilcox, the breast crease is an excellent location, since any scars are hidden on the underside of the breast.
Nipple/areola incision (“periareolar”): The incisions are made on the areola, which ensures that the pigmented skin of that area will mask any scars. This method is often selected by women who are also undergoing a breast lift. Within close distance to Frisco, Dr. Wilcox can discuss this option with you if desired.
Underarm incision (“transaxillary”): Hidden in the natural skin folds in the underarm; these incisions are not made on the breasts, thereby ensuring that no scarring on the breasts will occur. The implant can then be easily inserted into the prepared breast pocket by Dr. Wilcox.
TUBA (“transumbilical breast augmentation”): This newest method specific to saline implants is performed through the navel, which also allows for no breast scarring. After the incision is made in the umbilical area, the implant is seamlessly inserted through a tunnel that Dr. Wilcox has skillfully prepared.
To see the results that can be achieved with breast augmentation, please view before and after photos of past patients on the breast augmentation procedure page. In addition, we encourage you to read patient testimonials to get an idea of the care offered at the Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery Center of Texas.
