One of the most common plastic surgery procedures today is breast augmentation, also known as augmentation mammoplasty.
If you want to restore breast volume after significant weight loss, desire fuller breasts after having a baby, or just want a new look, breast augmentation surgery may be right for you.
Benefits of Breast Augmentation Surgery
- Enlarging breast size
- Enhancing body proportions
- Improving self confidence
You will have a personal consultation with Dr. Bajaj to determine if breast augmentation surgery will achieve the results you desire.
The operation typically requires one to two hours to perform. You can choose to undergo breast augmentation with saline- or silicone-filled implants, which come in a variety of shapes and sizes.
Breast augmentation is usually performed with a general anesthetic, so you’ll sleep through the surgery. There are three possible incision sites (seen below) used in the breast augmentation procedure Dr. Bajaj will recommend the best one for you:
Crease of the breast
Around the areola
The implants can also be placed in one of three positions in relation to the pectoral muscle: above the muscle, beneath the muscle, or partially beneath the muscle.
Before & After Photos
Dr. Bajaj will continue to monitor you after your breast augmentation surgery and will prescribe the appropriate medication/s to keep you comfortable.
Recovery time differs by individual, but you’ll probably need to take it easy for a few days; you may experience some soreness and swelling for one to two weeks.
Most patients return to work and participate in normal activities within two weeks of breast augmentation surgery.
Dr. Bajaj will give you specific instructions on how to care for your breasts following surgery. You will have a follow-up appointment within a couple of weeks to ensure everything is healing properly.
