A Comprehensive Guide to Breast Augmentation Surgery

Breast augmentation, also referred to as a “boob job” is one of the most popular types of plastic surgery. Many women opt for this type of procedure when they want to change the size and fullness of their breasts. To find out more about breast augmentation, you should speak with a board-certified plastic surgeon. They will be your best resource for understanding the procedure and whether or not you are a good candidate.

What Is Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation requires inserting a breast implant of either a silicone or saline composition to increase the size and volume of your breasts. Many times, after a woman loses weight or gives birth, the breasts will droop and lose volume. The implants are inserted to provide the breasts with a more rounded shape and symmetry. Women who have undergone the breast augmentation procedure are usually satisfied with the results. It is important to refrain from any heavy lifting or physical activity that can interfere with progress. Your plastic surgeon will map out a post-recovery plan and follow-up that you need to adhere to.

Who Is the Best Breast Augmentation Candidate?

If you are unsatisfied with your breast size and believe you can benefit from breast augmentation surgery, you should schedule a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Falcon. He will evaluate your situation during your consult to see if you are a good candidate. First of all, you need to be in good health, a non-smoker, and have realistic expectations. He will also take a look at your medical history to determine whether or not you have any factors to disqualify you. Once you are medically cleared, Dr. Falcon will determine which type of implant best suits your goals. You will be measured, photographed, and given the opportunity to ask any questions.

What Is the Recovery Time Frame?

In most cases, the recovery time from breast augmentation can be anywhere between four to six weeks. You will need to follow your doctor’s post-operative protocol to the letter. You will be required to wear a supportive bra and bandages as well as drains to catch blood and fluid. Your doctor will prescribe pain relievers to mitigate any discomfort. You should not engage in any type of heavy lifting or bending until the doctor gives you the word. Dr. Falcon will monitor your healing throughout the entire process. If you have any extreme pain or discomfort, you should call your doctor immediately.
