What to expect with a breast augmentation procedure?
- Posted on: May 30 2020
Women in the Lone Tree, Colorado area who are unhappy with the size and shape of their breasts often turn to a plastic surgeon to learn more about breast implants. The procedure, called breast augmentation, is a highly desirable cosmetic surgery requested by women who want to enhance their chest. Many women considering this treatment have smaller breasts and would like them enlarged, while maintaining a natural appearance. Dr. Jennifer Emmett of Emmett Plastic Surgery is a highly skilled plastic surgeon who can provide this treatment to women in the community who have thought of surgically enhancing their breasts.
What is breast augmentation?
Breast augmentation focuses on adding size and volume to the breasts. This is achieved with the placement of breast implants, which may be made from silicone or saline. The breast implants are placed into the breasts with strategic incisions to ensure less visible scarring following surgery. Women can obtain breast implants that give them a fuller chest and in some cases, improve their body contour and enhance their feminine appearance with a more balanced profile appearance.
What can I expect with my breast augmentation procedure?
Breast augmentation surgery is completed with general anesthesia in a surgical facility. The procedure itself typically takes an hour or less in most cases. Incisions are small and sutured with absorbable stitches, and dressing are applied to the treated area. Women are advised to wear a special postoperative bra to support the breasts and ensure proper healing. Women are transported home with aftercare instructions and can expect to take some extended time off of work to heal and adjust to the changes made.
How long will my implants last?
With proper care, most women can enjoy their breast implants for up to 20 years!
