Breast Augmentation

Breast Augmentation

Feeling good about the way you look can make a dramatic difference in all aspects of your life. For many women, having full, shapely breasts can provide a feeling of confidence and femininity. Breast augmentation can enhance the size and shape of a woman’s breasts, improving appearance and self-confidence as well.

There are several reasons a woman may choose to undergo breast augmentation. Breast augmentation can enhance contour and breast size, balance a difference in size, or correct a reduction in volume after pregnancy.

Overview

Breast augmentation surgery involves using breast implants to increase the size of your breasts. Breast augmentation is also referred to as augmentation mammoplasty. Breast implant types and incision placement can vary. Dr. Paulson prefers the incision in the fold under the breast and encourages under the muscle placement.

This is a same-day surgery under general anesthesia. You will have a lifting restriction of 5lbs for the first 3 weeks and 30lbs weeks 4-6. You should be able to return to work with lifting precautions in 5-7 days and return to normal activities in 6 weeks. Dissolvable sutures are typically used and may need to be trimmed at 3 weeks. Excessive swelling, bruising, and tenderness decreases or disappears in the first month after surgery with mild swelling continuing up to 6 months. Your scars will continue to fade up to 2 years.

You will wear a supportive bra and a bandeau after surgery for 3 weeks. No underwire bras can be worn until 6 weeks post-op.
Sleeping elevated for the first 4-5 days will decrease post-operative swelling.
You may notice a temporary decreased or increased nipple sensation, but this should subside as you heal.
