About breast augmentation
Breast augmentationis one of the most common performed cosmetic procedures. This procedure has a very high satisfaction rate among patients who have undergone surgery. The best candidates are all women with small or sagging breasts. Or women who want to enhance their cup size.
In your initial consultation it is very important to discuss your expectations about breast augmentation with Dr.Suarez, so the Doctor can recommend and give you his professional advice. He will examine and measure your breasts, describe the procedure in detail; explaining its risks, limitations and making sure you understand the scaring that will result. Photographs will be taken for reference before and after the breast augmentation surgery. It’s important to be sure if you want or need breast implants.
Your breast augmentation surgery takes approximately one hour. It is preformed with general anesthesia; you will be asleep through the entire operation. We make a small incision under the breast, and then separate the breast tissue or the muscle to place the implant. Most of our patients are able to return home the same day.
After your breast augmentation surgery you will be wrapped in an elastic bandage or surgical bra over a gauze dressing. You may feel (not always) some pain for the first couple of days, but we will prescribe medication to lessen the pain. Some of the stitches will be removed in one to three weeks. Most patients can return to work and social activities in about one week or less. Avoid lifting heavy objects, and raising your arms above your head for three to four weeks.
