Breast Augmentation Surgery
Breast enlargement, or augmentation mammoplasty often referred to as “breast implants”, enhances the body contour of a woman who is unhappy with her breast size. This procedure can also correct a reduction in breast volume after pregnancy or balance a difference in breast size. In certain cases where the breasts have sagging or droopiness, a simultaneous breast lift may be necessary.
During the procedure, an implant is inserted through an incision made in the crease under the breast. The implant may be placed under the breast tissue or beneath the chest wall muscle. Women may choose to have saline or silicone implants. Breast augmentation is an outpatient procedure that usually takes about one hour under general anesthesia.
Breast Augmentation Recovery
There will be some bruising and swelling around the area following your breast augmentation. Any pain or discomfort can be managed with medication. The breasts will be bandaged, and a surgical bra may need to be worn to provide additional support during the recovery process. Most patients return to routine activity within the first week, but aerobic activity and strenuous upper body activity are limited for 3-4 weeks. It can take some time before you see the full results of your breast augmentation. The implants will settle over time and it can take a few months for the swelling to fully subside.
