PREPARING FOR A BREAST AUGMENTATION
At your first visit, we will examine your breasts and body so we can decide together the implant size that will best suit your appearance and needs. We will discuss the type and size of the implants, where the incision will be, and the implants themselves.
You must refrain from smoking for six weeks before and six weeks after the surgery. This measure promotes faster healing, and helps prevent the surgical wounds from reopening. Healing may take longer for people with diabetes or who are overweight.
BREAST AUGMENTATION: SURGERY
Breast augmentation is a day surgery performed under general anesthesia in approximately one hour. After the surgery, you will wear a light bandage over the incision. The rest of your breast will not be covered, so you will be able to see the results immediately. You can decide if you want to wear a bra afterwards or not. Most patients find it more comfortable to have the support.
RECOVERY AFTER BREAST AUGMENTATION
This intervention causes moderate pain that can be managed with prescribed medications. You will be able to take a shower the day after the operation. Post-op visits are scheduled one week, three weeks, three months and one year after the surgery. Avoid intense physical effort for six weeks. If your work does not require physical effort, you may return to work after a few days of recovery. The breasts may be swollen for a while. The definitive results will be observable approximately three months after the operation.
