The Benefits of Breast Augmentation Surgery

Breast augmentation is a common procedure performed by a plastic surgeon. Breast augmentation is done to enlarge the size and fullness of the breasts, or to change the shape of the breasts.

What You Need To Know About Breast Augmentation Surgery

Breast augmentation surgery may be performed to restore the fullness and appearance of the breasts for women who have had a partial or full mastectomy. Breast augmentation surgery may also be performed to:

  • Restore symmetry to the breasts
  • Eliminate breast sagging by restoring breast volume
  • Enhance the shape of the breasts
  • Restore proportion of the breasts to body size

Breast augmentation surgery offers many important benefits. Consider that breast augmentation surgery will:

  • Enhance your appearance
  • Improve the fit of your clothes
  • Create a better proportion if your breasts are too small
  • Boost your self-confidence and self-esteem

Breast augmentation surgery is performed on an outpatient basis under sedation. The surgery takes between 1 and 3 hours to perform. During breast augmentation surgery, the plastic surgeon will make incisions through your armpits, in the crease under your breasts, or between the areola and breast tissue. Skin is pulled away to form a pocket, and a breast implant is placed in the pocket. The implant is centered on the breast and filled with saline. The incision is closed.

The plastic surgeon may recommend the placement of drainage tubes to drain away excess fluid. You may need the drainage tubes in place for a few days. The plastic surgeon may also prescribe antibiotics to prevent infection, and pain medication to keep you comfortable.

After your breast augmentation surgery, you can expect to see swelling and bruising, which may last from 3 to 5 weeks. You may also need to wear a surgical bra to help support your breasts while you heal. You should avoid strenuous activity for up to 4 weeks. Your plastic surgeon will inform you when you can resume normal activity levels.
