Breasts that are natural-looking and full can significantly impact a woman’s self-confidence. Breast augmentation procedures can help enhance the appearance of breasts and improve your self confidence. A breast augmentation procedure is unique to each woman’s body and their specific goals. Also known as augmentation mammoplasty, this procedure generally increases the volume of breasts. It uses implants to improve the symmetry of this area due to lost volume which is often the result of weight loss or pregnancy.
There is no way to say how long a procedure will last accurately, but breast implants have a long life span, and results should last for quite a while. There could be future complications, such as a rupture of a breast implant. In these cases, they may need to be removed to protect your health.
Generally, this procedure is suggested for those in their mid 20’s and older. Up until that point, the tissue in a woman’s breasts is still developing. As long as a patient is in good health, there is no upper age limit for breast augmentation surgery.
The size of breast implants is measured in cubic centimeters or cc’s. They come in many different sizes. You’ll work with our providers, one-on-one to choose the best implants for you to achieve your goals. You do not want implants that are too large as that can cause complications and result in additional surgery to correct any issues.
There are two standard shapes for breast implants: teardrop and round. Round implants are useful to create more dramatic cleavage, while teardrop-shaped implants are considered to appear more realistic. Teardrop implants are also often textured, which will keep them in place after surgery. Your goals will help our providers determine which shape is best for you.
This procedure is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures for women in the country. Not only does this procedure often increase the self-confidence of the patient, but it also helps correct any unevenness in breast size. You will look better in clothes, swimwear, and brassieres if you’ve lost some volume due to weight loss, pregnancy, or breastfeeding. There are many advantages to enhancing your breast size with breast augmentation procedures, and we can review them with a consultation at our clinic.
All in all, the procedure should take no more than 2 hours to complete, and you should expect this to be an outpatient procedure. No hospital stay will be needed in most cases. There will be swelling after the procedure, but this should go away within ten days if the implant is placed above the muscle. If the placement requires it to be under the muscle, then you should expect swelling to last up to 12 weeks. Bandages from your surgery will be removed in most cases within seven days as will stitches if needed. You will need at most, a week of recovery time before returning to work and around four weeks if your job involves lifting. If you work out regularly, you can resume this after about a month of recovery time.
