Breast Augmentation What You Need to Know?
No matter what the reasoning is for an individual to undergo a breast augmentation procedure, it is always suggested to know exactly how the procedure is performed. This will not only ease the mind of the patient, but allow for time to mentally prepare for the procedure and not get overly anxious. Breast augmentation surgery is one of the top procedures that plastic surgeons perform on a regular basis. They have become quite routine and with the utilization of our technological advances to date, recovery time has been cut down significantly.
Where Will the Incision Be?
Using the specific implants that have been chosen between you and your surgeon, the procedure can happen a few different ways. The biggest difference between procedures is where the initial incision for the implants is. This can be under the breast, under the muscle, on top of the muscle, under the armpit or through the nipple area. Again, the best option for each patient will be discussed in further detail during a consultation appointment to Dr. Rast. Every patient and surgeon is different, so talking about the procedure is critical.
Brest Augmentation Recovery Time
After the incision has been made, it creates a little pocket in which the implant will be placed. If you are receiving a fat transfer augmentation, then fat from another region of the patient’s body will be removed and injected. After the desired size has been achieved, the incision will be sutured shut and the recovery process will begin. Recovery time does vary from patient to patient, as it does make a difference in how quickly an individual heals, what type of incision was made and what type of implant was chosen.
Generally, a good estimate is about 6 to 8 weeks’ time after any invasive surgical procedure. This is a good time to assume your ‘downtime’ will be before you can resume regular activity. For additional information, contact Dr. Rast today.
