What does a Breast Augmentation procedure entail?

This procedure is done on women who desire a larger bust line or would like to return to the bra size they had prior to having children.

Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure to increase a woman's bust line. This is done by placing implants beneath the breast tissue to increase a woman's breast size. There are numerous sizes and shapes to choose from as well as the position of the implant (above or below the chest muscle). Often, if the native breast is too droopy, this procedure is combined with a breast lift. Typical recovery is about three to four days (about a long weekend).

More about Breast Augmentation procedures:

Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure designed to increase the size of the breast. This is done by placing implants beneath the breast tissue. The implant is a silicone rubber sac, filled with either saline or silicone gel. Both designs are now approved for widespread use by the FDA. The implant can be inserted above or below the pectoralis muscle. Placement decisions are made by the physician in collaboration with the patient. Surgery of this sort requires an incision which means a scar will ensue. Several types of incisions can be selected. Such surgery is normally undertaken under general anesthesia. The operation requires about one hour of time. The usual recovery includes pain, which must be treated for the first few days. Most patients must avoid work for about five days. We strive to minimize down time and risk. We work with our patients to plan for the quickest and easiest recovery. We must consider the usual risks of postoperative infection and bleeding. We prepare for early sensory problems and in the long term we try to minimize risks of distortion or implant breakage. These and other considerations must be covered when we see our patients before an operation.
