Breast augmentation, also known as augmentation mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure to increase the size, shape, or fullness of a woman’s breasts. It involves the placement of breast implants or the transfer of fat from another part of the body to the breasts.

Here’s an overview of the breast augmentation procedure:

  1. Consultation: The process typically begins with a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon. During this consultation, the surgeon will discuss the patient’s goals, examine their breasts, take measurements, and discuss options for implants, incision placement, and surgical technique.
  2. Implant Selection: Patients can choose between saline-filled implants, silicone gel-filled implants, or cohesive gel (“gummy bear”) implants. The surgeon will help the patient select the appropriate size, shape, and type of implant based on their anatomy, desired outcome, and personal preferences.
  3. Surgery: Breast augmentation surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia. The surgeon will make incisions in the predetermined locations, such as in the crease under the breast, around the areola, or in the armpit. The chosen implant is then inserted either behind the breast tissue or beneath the chest muscle, depending on the patient’s anatomy and the surgeon’s recommendation.
  4. Recovery: After surgery, patients will typically experience some swelling, bruising, and discomfort, which can be managed with pain medication. Most patients can resume light activities within a few days but should avoid strenuous exercise and heavy lifting for several weeks. Patients will be provided with specific post-operative instructions by their surgeon to facilitate healing and reduce the risk of complications.
  5. Results: Over time, swelling will diminish, and the breasts will settle into their final shape and position. The majority of swelling resolves within a few weeks, but it may take several months for the final results to become fully apparent.
