Breast augmentation surgery, also known as breast enlargement, is a popular cosmetic surgery procedure. Women who are unhappy with the size of their breasts undergo breast augmentation surgery to increase their self-confidence and overall satisfaction with their appearance. It is also common for women to undergo breast enhancement surgery after pregnancy, weight loss, or aging has resulted in the breasts losing shape and volume.

Breast Implant Choices

Women choosing breast enhancement should be aware of the difference between the various breast implants, including the material (saline and silicone), sizes, shapes, and textures. During your consultation, your plastic surgeon will help you determine the optimum choice for your frame and desired results. Both size and shape are important when trying to achieve a natural look with breast implants.

Breast Augmentation Procedure

During the breast augmentation procedure, small incisions are made to allow the implants to be inserted into the chest. There are several possible incision locations through which the implants can be inserted. Your surgeon will help you determine which surgical technique will work best for you.

Breast Augmentation Recovery

After the breast augmentation procedure, you may feel soreness and discomfort for the first two to four days. Movement should be restricted, and patients should get plenty of rest. The surgical dressings are removed several days after the procedure, and most people return to work about a week after breast enlargement surgery.

Breast Augmentation Results

After breast augmentation surgery, patients can expect to have a larger, fuller chest with more cleavage. In many cases, this larger chest is more proportionate to the rest of the patient’s figure. Most women who choose to undergo breast enlargement surgery do so because they feel that their natural breasts are too small for their figure, so the procedure has a very high satisfaction rate.
