What you should expect

Breast enlargement surgery is routinely performed in the United States, but it is still a surgical procedure and must be performed by a professional in a medical environment. On the day of the procedure, you should arrive with a trusted friend or family member who can help transport you home after you awaken from your surgery — most of the time, breast augmentation is performed while you are under general anesthesia.

During the breast enhancement procedure, Dr. Jabor or Dr. Reynolds will make an incision either next to the areola, in the inframammary crease, or in the transaxillary (armpit) crease. Both you and your doctor will decide what incision is best for you prior to the surgery, based on the size and type of your implant and what kind of incision will best hide your scar. Once your doctor has made the incision, he will create a pocket behind the breast for the implant. Depending on where you have decided to place the implant, the pocket will be created either in front, partially behind, or completely behind the chest wall muscle. After the pocket has been created, the breast implant will be inserted.

Depending on the kind of implant you have chosen, it may already be filled or it may need to be filled during your procedure. If the implant must be filled, your doctor will fill it with saline solution (sterile salt water) according to the agreed-upon size. After the implant is placed, the breast enhancement surgery is complete, and the doctor will close the incision and place bandages around the area to aid the healing process.

Healing Once Your Breast Enlargement Procedure Is Finished

Once the breast enhancement surgery is finished, you will be able to return home to recover. After a few days of healing, the gauze will be removed from the area, but you will need to wear a surgical compression bra as directed. There are no sutures to be removed, and any swelling should subside after a few weeks. For a few weeks, your breasts may be sore, but light activity and work can be resumed after just a few days of rest. Dr. Reynolds or Dr. Jabor will inform you of how long after the surgery you should wait to resume some normal activities and exercise. Scarring from breast enhancement should lessen as the healing process continues, but good placement of the incision and the natural creases or folds of the body should conceal any scars.

Insert the breast implant

After the pocket has been created, the breast implant will be inserted. During the breast enlargement procedure, the implant can be selected so that it is either filled prior to the surgery or so that it is filled once it has been placed. If the implant must be filled, your doctor will fill it with saline (salt water); otherwise, after the implant is placed, the breast enhancement surgery is complete, and the doctor will close the incision and place bandages around the area to aid the healing process.
