Breast Augmentation Process

What Happens During Surgery

Breast Augmentation involves making a small incision to insert a breast implant into the breast area in order to enlarge the breast. The surgery is commonly performed on an outpatient basis at a hospital or state-of-the-art surgical unit while the patient is under a general anesthesia and asleep. There are several possible locations for the small incision that will be used for inserting the breast implant.

Choosing the Right Incision Technique for Breast Augmentation

The most frequent technique utilizes an incision made in the lower portion of the breast. Another technique, though less frequently used, involves making an incision in the armpit. A third technique makes an incision around the areola (the darker skin surrounding the nipple). A newer technique uses an incision in the belly button, thus reducing the chance of scarring in the breast area. The best technique will be decided together between the patient and the surgeon during the consultation.

Recovery Process

Generally, post-operative instructions call for plenty of rest and limited movement in order to speed up the healing process and recovery time. Bandages are applied right after surgery to aid the healing process and to minimize movement of the breasts. Once the bandages are removed, a specialized surgical bra will need to be worn for several weeks. Patients sometimes report minor pain associated with the surgery. This pain can be treated effectively with oral medication. While complications are rare, patients can minimize potential problems by carefully following the directions given by the physician after surgery.

Recovery time varies from person to person but usually involves some discomfort, swelling, and bruising for a few weeks. Most patients can resume normal activities within a few weeks, but heavy lifting and strenuous exercise should be avoided for a more extended period.

Breast augmentation is generally safe when performed by a qualified, board-certified plastic surgeon in an accredited surgical facility. It’s essential to follow post-operative instructions carefully to minimize risks.

Incisions for breast augmentation are typically made in areas that minimize the visibility of scars. Your surgeon will discuss incision placement during your consultation to ensure minimal scarring.
