Understanding Breast Augmentation
Breast augmentation is intended to give you larger and shapelier breasts. If you have one breast that is noticeably smaller than the other, breast enlargement surgery can usually equalize the size and come close to matching the shape. If you’d also like to improve the height or perkiness of your breasts, a breast lift may be added to enhance the results of your breast augmentation.
Breast augmentation is a straightforward and safe surgery in the hands of an experienced plastic surgeon. At La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery Centre, we perform breast augmentations in our accredited operating room using general anesthesia. Trust us—though the procedure is not extensive, it’s better to be comfortably under anesthesia during the operation. Rest assured that a board certified anesthesiologist will be taking care of you, while your board certified plastic surgeon concentrates on the procedure. Post-operatively, newer pain control techniques reduce your discomfort to very low levels.
Recovery from breast augmentation is surprisingly quick for most patients. If you have a desk job, you can usually return to work within a week. Although you’ll have to take a break from workouts, you should be able to ease back into aerobic activity and exercise not involving the chest in about 4 weeks. Your surgeon will let you know when it’s okay to resume any activity.
Breast augmentation incisions may be in the breast crease, around the nipple, or in the armpit. A saline or silicone implant is inserted under the breast tissue, or under the breast tissue and the underlying muscle. Continue Reading >>
