Board certifications alone ensure that the surgeon has had at least three to five years of training in surgery, and two to three years Plastic Surgery training. Check references and reviews, too – see how the surgeon’s patients feel about the work they had done.

What happens during Breast Enlargement?

While your doctor will decide which anesthetic is right for you, based on your health, surgery type, usually you will be provided general anesthetic – which puts you deeply asleep.

The surgeon will make an incision, usually in the infra-mammary fold (IMF – the crease below your breast), insert the implant, then close the incision with sutures, skin adhesive and tape.

Breast enlargement surgery is one of the more common plastic surgeries, and is done as an out-patient day surgery. An overnight hospital stay is not usually required.

You can read more about Breast Enlargement (Breast Augmentation) at the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.


There are a few different types of implants that include silicone, saline, and autologous fat transplants. Autologous fat transplants use fat taken from your own body, and implanted into the breast area.

You may hear about different incision locations, such as the traditional IMF incision, axillary (arm pit) incision, periareolar incision (around the pigmented area around the nipple), belly button incision (TUBA Incision), and a few others. The IMF is the most common, but there are times that one of the other methods may be preferred by your surgeon.

Then there are the different places, within the breast region, an implant can be placed. Options are: between the breast tissue (mammary gland) and the chest muscles, between two chest muscles (pectoralis major and minor), or fully under the muscles. Each have different benefits and results.

Talk with your surgeon, and find out the pros and cons are for each option.

How long will the procedure take to do?

Breast Enlargement surgery can take as little as 40 minutes, but usually between two and four hours. You’ll want to factor in some extra time before, to prep, and after, to wake from anesthetic. Usually you can go home the same day.

What does the recovery process look like?

You will be sore, for a little while, so make sure you have help for the first few days for any child care, and lifting.

Your doctor will prescribe pain medication and will fit you with a compression/support garment. Every body is different, but you could possibly return to normal activities in about a week. If your implants were below the muscle, your recovery time may be longer, so you’ll have to wait about 6 weeks to get back to strenuous exercise. Scars will heal about six weeks after the surgery, and fade over the next couple years.
