About Breast Enlargement Surgery
Breast enlargement surgery is done on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia. Prior to your surgery, you and your surgeon will decide what surgical approach and type of implant is best for you. Incisions for breast enlargement can be made either under the breast in the crease, around the bottom of the aerola (nipple complex), or in the armpit. The implants are can be placed either under the breast tissue or under the muscle. There are several types of implants—saline and silicone gel, both of which come in many styles—that allows your surgeon to select the implant that is best suited to your needs.
The patient goes home in an elastic bra. The bra helps hold the breasts in the correct position. Initial discomfort is controlled with oral medication. Sutures are usually removed in 7 to 12 days. Light activities can be resumed as tolerated and aerobic activities can be started in about 3 weeks. Moving or sliding the implants within the breast pockets during the postoperative period may reduce the frequency of wrinkling. Your surgeon will instruct you in post operative massage of your implants at your post operative check up.
An additional procedure that would enhance the result of a breast augmentation is a Breast Lift if the breasts are saggy in addition to being small.
