Breast Augmentation Q & A

Advanced Plastic and Hand Surgery

What is Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure that utilizes breast implants to increase the size or improve the shape of your breasts. Some women choose breast augmentation to restore breast volume after weight reduction or pregnancy while others undergo breast augmentation to achieve a more rounded breast shape or improve breast symmetry.

Will Breast Augmentation Decrease Sagging?

Breast augmentation will not help with severely drooping breasts. You may require a breast lift and an augmentation to achieve the results you desire. It’s often possible to do both procedures at once. Your doctor can help you determine the best plan for your situation.

Who is a Good Candidate for Breast Augmentation Surgery?

Many women are very pleased with the physical changes and the boost in self-confidence that often occurs as a result of breast augmentation. However, it’s a serious surgery that permanently alters the appearance of your breasts. It’s important that you give careful consideration to what you’re hoping to achieve by having the surgery, and that your expectations regarding the outcome are realistic.

You may be a good candidate for breast augmentation if:

  • You’re physically healthy and aren't pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Your breasts are fully developed
  • You’re dissatisfied with the changes in your breasts that have occurred after pregnancy or with weight loss or aging
  • Your breasts are asymmetrical
  • One or both breasts failed to develop normally

The team at Advanced Hand and Plastic Surgery is focused on you as a person and not just another procedure. You can expect an extensive and thoughtful discussion about breast augmentation and what it entails before scheduling your surgery.  

How Long Does it Take to Recover After Breast Augmentation Surgery?

The specifics of the procedure and expected recovery are explained in detail before your surgery is scheduled and may vary from patient to patient. You might require an overnight hospital stay afterward, but most patients can return home the same day, after spending some time in the recovery area.

Your postoperative care plan will likely include medications for pain and an antibiotic to prevent infection. Significant discomfort typically subsides after one to five days but you may note some soreness and swelling in the area for a few weeks.
