Breast augmentation involves the placement of implants designed to enhance the shape and size of your breasts. The procedure can be performed for cosmetic or reconstructive purposes following surgery for breast cancer or other conditions.
There are different kinds of implants used in breast augmentation procedures, and your Advanced Dermatology cosmetic surgeon will discuss the options with you to help you choose the right implant based on your cosmetic goals.
Breast augmentation is performed as an outpatient procedure. The operation takes approximately 1-2 hours. Someone should accompany you on the day of your surgery and drive you home. You should plan to have someone present to assist you for the first 24 hours following surgery.
