Breast Overview in Houston and The Woodlands
Through the use of the absolute latest surgical techniques, Dr. Linville is applying new methods and a cosmetic eye for his breast reconstruction patients in Houston and The Woodlands.
- Dr. Linville is trained in the use of breast implants, free flap reconstruction, fat grafting, regional perforator flaps for breast conservation, and cosmetic surgery, so you are assured to get the best-looking result possible in the safest manner. He uses many new techniques to combine modalities for not only the best looking result, but to also limit your number of surgeries to achieve your final, uncompromising result.
- Beyond DIEP flaps: There are several other flap options and even local perforator flap options to help restore the breast when a DIEP is not available or advisable.
- Better than round implants: Round implants can work well for many patients. However, many women desiring reconstruction want a more natural look. Through the use of shaped anatomic implants and a precisely reconstructed breast pocket, your breasts will look natural and you will love their feel and shape.
The goal is to get an uncompromising aesthetic result with the breast reconstruction process in as few surgeries as possible, with patient safety being paramount. This is made possible by teaming up with a select few breast surgeons who demonstrate flawless technique and understanding of tissue handling to preserve the patient’s anatomy and enhance the healing process. For longer free flaps, Dr. Linville has a team that works together to help get surgery done faster, which is also safer and enables a quicker recovery.
- Fat grafting – this technique has been proven safe and yields exceptional results. After liposuction on any “trouble areas”, the fat is processed and injected into the breast to add volume, smooth contour lines, and enhance projection (just to name a few). It is minimally invasive and is quickly becoming the gold standard in cosmetic surgery and breast surgery.
