Breast Augmentation in Dallas, TX
Breast augmentation is one of the most commonly performed plastic surgery procedures. Also known as augmentation mammoplasty, our Dallas breast augmentation involves placing implants or using fat transfer to increase the size and enhance the shape of the breasts. This procedure may be performed to improve the projection of naturally small breasts, increase the volume of breasts that appear deflated, or to correct noticeable breast asymmetries. Whatever your motivation, breast augmentation can enhance your breasts, improve your figure, and boost your self-image and self-confidence.
Schedule a consultation with Dr. David Morales, our breast augmentation surgeon in Dallas, and obtain the natural and voluminous breasts you desire.

Submuscular (under the muscle)
- The implant is inserted beneath both the pectoral muscle and the breast tissue
- This placement comes with a lower risk of capsular contracture, visible rippling, and inaccurate mammogram readings
- Submuscular placement produces a more natural breast slope, particularly in patients with minimal existing breast tissue
- The recovery after submuscular breast implant placement is longer than that of subglandular placement, but many patients report a satisfactory result
Subglandular (above the muscle)
- The implant is inserted above the pectoral muscle but beneath the breast tissue
- Patients who opt for subglandular placement may have enhanced cleavage, but there is also a higher risk of visible rippling and noticeable implant edges
- This placement involves less tissue trauma, which leads to a shorter recovery
- The incision goes around the areola of the breast
- Scarring blends with the edge of the areola
- Allows for moderate control over implant placement, but has an increased risk of changes in nipple sensation
- The incision extends along the crease beneath the breast
- Scarring is more extensive but can be hidden by clothing
- Preferred by many surgeons for the ability to accommodate any implant type and the reduced risk of complications
- The incision is placed within the armpit
- Leaves no scars on the breasts/ referred to as a “scarless breast augmentation”
- Limits implant types and limits control over breast implant placement
Patients who are concerned about visible implant edges or planning to undergo a breast reconstruction procedure may be candidates for augmentation using fat transfer. Fat is first removed from a donor site using liposuction. Then it is processed to remove excess liquid and impurities. The purified fat is injected into the breasts to conceal the implant edges or produce a natural-looking breast slope.
While fat grafting or fat transfer to the breasts (also known as natural breast augmentation) cannot increase the volume of the breasts to the same extent as implants, it does allow for a subtle increase, which can be beneficial for women with minimal natural breast tissue. This technique also avoids any potential complications associated with breast implants.
Fat transfer to the breast can be performed alone or in combination with an implant.
What Is Breast Augmentation Surgery?
The Breast Augmentation Procedure
Breast augmentation with implants is performed on an outpatient basis. This one-hour procedure is performed under general anesthesia so that you will be asleep for the duration of the surgery. Dr. Morales will operate through the previously determined incision location, creating a pocket in each breast for the implants. He will then insert the implants, centering them beneath the nipples before closing the incisions with sutures.
