Benefits of Breast Augmentation
Women visit us for breast augmentation for their own personal aesthetic goals, which typically include one or more of the following improvements:
- Adding fullness to naturally small breasts
- Restoring volume to breasts that have become smaller after having children or losing weight
- Correcting asymmetry when breast size is uneven
- Attaining balanced body proportions
Whether you get breast augmentation alone or in combination with other breast enhancement procedures such as a breast lift or nipple correction, the goal is always to help you feel better about the appearance of your breasts and the overall look of your body.
Our surgeons typically perform breast augmentation as an outpatient procedure using IV sedation or general anesthesia, which is delivered under the care of a board-certified anesthesiologist. The surgery takes approximately 2 hours to complete or longer if performed as part of a Mommy Makeover.
At your consultation, your surgeon will walk you through decisions about breast implants and surgical techniques in order to provide the results you desire. View the following pages for more information:

Your surgeon will discuss the procedure with you in detail so that you feel educated and confident in your choices.
What to Expect for Recovery
Breast augmentation patients typically go home the day of surgery. It's important to arrange for an adult to drive you home and help care for you for the first day or 2. It's common to have some bruising, swelling, and a feeling of tightness in the chest area initially.
In order to promote healing, your surgeon will have you wear a surgical support bra and place restrictions on your activity level initially. Avoid lifting, pulling, or pushing for the first 10 days. Most patients are able to return to normal daily activities, including work or school, within a week to 10 days and more strenuous activity in about 3 to 4 weeks.
