HB: What is a Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure to increase the fullness and projection of a woman’s breasts.

HB: How does a Breast Augmentation work?

First, a thorough consultation is performed to determine if a woman is a candidate for the surgery.  Then it is a surgical procedure performed preferably by a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon with the patient under general anesthesia.  A small incision is made, a pocket is created appropriately on the woman’s chest to help achieve the desired results, and an implant (silicone or saline) is placed in that pocket, preferably under the muscle.

HB: Who is the best candidate for this procedure?

The best candidate for this procedure is a healthy adult woman who has the desire to increase fullness to her breasts or correct volume loss from pregnancy and/or nursing.

HB: How does this treatment compare to others of the same nature?

Breast augmentation with a silicone or saline implant is far superior to add volume and fullness to a woman’s breast compared to fat (or other) injections.

HB: What does recovery look like?

Recovery for breast augmentation is relatively easy.  We recommend no heavy lifting, exertion or exercise for two weeks following surgery.  A patient can usually drive two to three days following the surgery as long as narcotics or mind-altering medication are not being taken.  Patients can return to work after a few days if they have a desk-type job or one that doesn’t require heavy exertion.
