Breast enlargement surgery, also known as augmentation mammaplasty, is the surgical placement of breast implants to increase fullness and improve symmetry of the breasts, or to restore breast volume lost after weight reduction or pregnancy.

Implant type and size will be determined not only by your desired increase in size but also, and more importantly, by your breast anatomy, skin elasticity and body type. After making an incision a breast implant is inserted into the patient’s breast. Thereafter incisions inside breast tissue are closed with layered sutures.

The results of breast augmentation surgery are immediately visible. Over time, post-surgical swelling will resolve and incision lines will fade. Satisfaction with your new image should continue to grow as you recover and realize the fulfillment of your goal for fuller breasts.

Breast enlargement will not correct severely drooping breasts , a breast lift will solve this problem. Breast lifting can often be done at the same time as your augmentation or may require a separate operation.

Breast augmentation recovery

After your surgery you will be taken to a single room to be closely monitored , your breasts will be wrapped in gauze dressings and an elastic bandage will minimize swelling and support the breasts as they heal. You will stay at the hospital for one or two nights.

Before leaving, you will be given specific instructions on how to care for your breasts following surgery, medications to apply or take orally to aid healing and reduce the risk of infection, and when to follow-up with your plastic surgeon.

You will be asked to buy a support bra around the clock for the two weeks. Exercise and normal activity can resume at the direction of your plastic surgeon.
