What happens during Breast Augmentation?

Your doctor will decide which kind of anesthesia to provide you, but the options are intravenous sedation, and general anesthesia. With intravenous sedation, you are relaxed very deeply, and the surgical area is treated with local anesthesia. With general anesthesia you will be totally asleep.

The surgeon will make an incision, and create a pocket in the breast tissue. The breast implant is then placed in the pocket. Then the incision is closed with a combination of stiches, skin adhesive and surgical tape.

The preferred and most common method of inserting an implant, whether silicone, saline, or transplanted fat, is via an incision below the breast, called an Infra-mammary fold (IMF) incision. While the scar is more apparent than other methods, the IMF incision provides the best results, with fewer undesirable side effects and risks.

The breast implants can be placed in a few ways: Under the breast tissue of the mammary gland, under the fascia of the pectoralis major muscle, under the pectoralis major muscle, or entirely below the chest muscles. Each has their pros and cons, and your doctor will help you decide.

How long will the procedure take to do?

Breast Augmentation surgery generally takes about two hours to perform. Your total time at the clinic may vary, depending on when you are asked to arrive to prep for the surgery, and how long you need to wake from anesthesia. You’ll usually go home the same day.

What does the recovery process look like?

You’ll wear a compression or extremely supportive bra. Depending on the method of implant used, you could be back to your normal daily activities in a week or two. If the implants were done below your muscles in any way, you’ll need to move gently, and you can get back to exercise in about six weeks.

Scars will heal in about 6 weeks after the surgery, and fade over a period of a few months to two years.
