Breast augmentation can enhance the shape and increase the size of your breasts. However, it is important to understand that implants alone may not adequately lift the breasts or correct the effects of pregnancy, weight loss,or skin stretching. For optimal results, our physicians may suggest combining breast augmentation with a breast lift which helps increase volume and the overall shape of the breast.
The procedure is performed on an outpatient basis in our fully accredited facility. General anesthesia is administered by a physician anesthesiologist to maximize your safety and comfort during and after the procedure.
What Can I Expect?
Your breasts will probably be swollen and sore for a few days following your surgery, but your discomfort can be managed with oral pain relievers. Right after surgery, you’ll wear a surgical bra over gauze dressings. After a few days, you’ll begin wearing a soft support bra, which you’ll wear continuously for the next two to four weeks. The doctor will remove your sutures after a week or two. You should be able to return to work after a week or so, but you should continue to take it easy for about a month. After that, you can gradually resume your regular routine.
Who Is A Candidate?
Most people who are candidates for a breast augmentation, would also be candidates for a breast lift.
An ideal candidate for a breast augmentation with lift is:
- Are in good physical and emotional health.
- Have small, sagging breasts. (The operation can be performed on breasts of any size, but the results may not last as long in women with heavy breasts.)
- Do not plan to have more children. (While a breast lift shouldn’t interfere with future pregnancies, your breasts will likely stretch if you become pregnant. Most women choose to postpone their breast lift until they are finished having children.)
