Breast Augmentation Q & A

Southwest Plastic Surgery Center

What Is Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation is a surgery typically used to increase or restore the size of the breasts, which significantly alters their shape. Breast augmentation can be performed using silicone or saline breast implants or even through fat transfer. Implant options can also come in many different sizes, shapes, and textures. The results are intended to show a size and shape that feels comfortable and fits the body naturally. It is typically performed to enhance a naturally small bust, as part of reconstruction following a mastectomy, or in combination with a lift to breasts that have sagged due to weight loss, pregnancy, or aging.

What Happens on the Day of My Breast Augmentation Procedure?

Breast augmentation procedures typically take up to three hours. You will be given anesthesia to prepare you for the surgery that will allow you to stay asleep during the procedure. Afterward, you will be taken to a recovery area and observed for a short period of time. Unless your doctor thinks otherwise, you’ll be able to go home in your dressings and surgical bra that same day. Initially, the breasts are tight, swollen, and may be painful, but after about six weeks or more, there is a significant improvement.

How Will I Feel After Surgery?

Most patients experience some swelling directly following surgery, which can be uncomfortable. Once the post-surgical swelling subsides, usually within a few days, the patient can begin to resume normal activities although it may take several weeks before patients are cleared for heavy exercise or strenuous activities.

How Long Will My Breast Augmentation Results Last?

In most cases, breast augmentation results last a lifetime, but the status of your implants should be monitored on a regular basis to make sure they’re progressing in the right way. When breast augmentation is performed by an experienced plastic surgeon, breast augmentation has a very high success rate.
