Breast Augmentation is gaining popularity as each year advances in medicine make the procedure safer and less invasive. With nearly 350,000 breast augmentations performed in the US alone, women are taking control of the look of their curves by changing size, shape or balancing disproportionate breasts.
If you’re considering breast augmentation surgery, you’ll want to know everything that’s involved and what to expect.
A consultation with our doctors is just what the doctor ordered. Schedule a complimentary consultation, come in and we’ll discuss your goals regarding the best size and shape for your body type.
So what actually happens?
Typically an implant is inserted either behind the breast tissue behind the chest muscle. Breast implants can be placed in different positions and come in various shapes, sizes, and materials. You’ll discuss all of your options with your doctor ahead of time.
Our breast augmentation procedures are performed in the hospital ambulatory surgery suite where you are safe and monitored by board-certified anesthesiologists. The procedure usually takes two hours.
What about after surgery?
Besides looking gorgeous, your breasts will be sore, bruised and swollen due to the stretching of the skin and the incisions. We advise our patients not to do any heavy lifting following the procedure. Before you’re able to break out the sexy bras, you’ll need to wear a surgical bra for a few weeks. Typically you’ll be back to work within a week and back to your normal routine within a few weeks after surgery.
