The choice to undergo a breast augmentation procedure is deeply personal. Many woman may have toyed with the idea at one point or another during their lives, but only those who are truly sure of their choice should undergo the procedure. Breast augmentation is a very popular cosmetic surgery option and can provide exceptional improvements in self-confidence for those who have it done, but it is important to remember that any cosmetic procedure should only be done for your own benefit and not in an attempt to make another person happy. Patients should be in generally good physical and mental health in order to be a candidate for breast augmentation. Breast augmentation can address more than just size by improving the appearance of sagging, elongated, flat, or uneven breasts. The FDA requires patients to be at least 18 years of age for saline breast implants, and 22 years of age for silicone implants.

During your procedure, you will be under general anesthesia, so you will not feel anything and can remain comfortable throughout. Incisions will be made according to discussions that you and your surgeon will have prior to your surgery. Incisions are made in areas that are less likely to produce noticeable scars, such as under the breast, in the armpit, or around the areola. Your surgeon will then insert the breast implant material and position it to provide you with the exact amount of enhancement you are interested in achieving. Your surgeon will then suture the incisions closed and wrap your breasts.
As with any surgical procedure, patients who undergo breast augmentation should have realistic expectations when it comes to the level of pain and the extent of their recovery. While your breasts heal, gauze wrappings and a support bra or elastic bandage will be used to support them and reduce swelling. Your doctor may prescribe you pain medication to help reduce your discomfort. You will be required to rest for several days following your procedure and may be instructed to clean the incisions. It is extremely important that you listen to your surgeon’s post-operative directions closely, so you can improve your healing experience.
