What happens during a breast augmentation consultation?

During your initial consultation you will meet with a trained physician and possibly the clinical director. Usually the doctor will perform an examination to determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure. The doctor will then share the details of the operation, show you before and after photos of previous patients, and take some measurements of your chest area. The measurements the doctor takes are a vital part in determining the proper size and shap of the implants that will be right for you and your cosmetic goals. You will be shown examples of the saline and the silicone implants. Saline implants are made of a silicone shell that's filled with saline solution. The silicone implants are made of a silicone shell that is filled with silicone gel. Traditionally it is the silicone implant that offers a more natural look and feel to augmented breasts and are considered the more popular of the two. The current generation of silicone implants are quite different from the old ones that were taken off the market years ago due to complications. In the past implants were made of silicone oil. Today's silicone implants are made out of a silicone gel. Thanks to the new materials being used today silicone implants have a much lower rupture rate and are very safe. Saline implants are a great option for patients who are looking for a lot of cleavage and roundness. They are also ideal for women who have different sized breasts and are seeking to equalize their appearance. For these patients we can use the same implant size and simply fill one to match the volume of the other.

During your consultation we will discuss all surgical fees and financing options. We will also take the time to answer any other questions you may have. If you decide to proceed with the, you will have a second consultation about 2 weeks before surgery. During this second appointment your doctor will review the surgical plan, walk you through the consent forms, take photographs, and assign you your prescriptions. This is also the time when you and your doctor will make the final decision on which implant style and shape to proceed with. Before you leave you will receive a packet of surgical instructions and information helping your prepare of your surgery.

How do I prepare for a breast augmentation procedure?

After you have met with your physician and the date for the procedure has been chosen, we recommend that you take steps to provide for your at-home care during your recovery. You should arrange for a ride both to and from the surgery center the day of the procedure and for a friend or family member to stay with you for the first 24 hours. You should plan to take 3-7 days off from work, depending upon the type of work that you do. Some employers require paperwork from your physician to take such time off, and you can obtain this ahead of time simply by notifying our office staff and bringing the necessary forms from your job. If you are a smoker it is essential that you quit a minimum of two weeks prior to surgery. We recommend 6-8 weeks, but two weeks is the minimum. Smokers heal at a slower pace than non-smokers and consequently can have wound healing problems. If you take aspirin or any other medication that this your blood, we recommend you stop taking it three weeks prior to the procedure as it has been known to cause increased bleeding which can result in more bruising. Diet pills (prescription or over-the-counter) should be discontinued no less than week prior to surgery. If you are taking Metformin (a common diabetes medication) this should be stopped one week prior to surgery to avoid anesthesia risks. If you are taking any other medications, herbs, vitamins and dietary supplements be sure to review them with your doctor prior to surgery. If you are under the care of a physician and/or cardiologist for any health issues, we may require surgical clearance.

During your pre-operative consultation we will give you a map to the surgery center and your prescriptions. It is very important that you get the prescriptions filled prior to surgery so they are at home and ready when you need them. We also recommend that you purchase an inexpensive sports bra to wear for the first two weeks following the procedure. We also recommend keeping some bags of frozen peas or vegetables to use as icepacks after your procedure. It is vital that you stay hydrated both before and after the procedure, so have plenty of water or sports drinks around the house. We recommend mixing sports drinks and water 50/50. It is also a good idea to take a stool softener since narcotic pain medication and anesthesia can cause constipation.

It is important that you do not have anything to eat or drink after midnight the morning of the surgery, this does include water. When you shower the morning of the procedure be sure to use an antimicrobial soap on the chest and abdomen areas. Do not put any lotions, deodorant or make-up on the day of surgery. We also ask that you not wear any jewelry to the surgery center. Be sure to wear loose-fitting, comfortable clothes that are easy to get in and out of (a button up shirt is a great option). Please remember to bring your photo ID when you check-in to the surgery center. After check-in you will be taken to the pre-operating area where your doctor will discuss the plan once again and answer any additional questions you may have. At this time you will also meet the anesthesiologist and you be able to discuss with him/her their part of the procedure and get additional questions answered.

What happens during the breast augmentation procedure?

The operation itself typically takes about an hour to perform. During the procedure your anesthesiologist will put you to sleep to ensure your safety and comfort. Your doctor will make incisions that are usually located below the breasts in the mammary fold or around the areola. Both of these incisions will leave a slight scar that will be well-concealed. Your doctor will then proceed to create a pocket underneath the chest muscle that will be large enough to house the implant. Then the implant will be inserted by using a funnel device so the implant itself does not touch your skin or the surgeon’s gloves as it is being inserted. This technique is proven to reduce the risk of infection and capsular contracture rate because the implant never touches skin. After this is done your doctor will close the incisions with dissolvable sutures. When it is all complete you will wake up in your recovery room and be ready to go home in about an hour.

What is to be expected after a breast augmentation procedure?

You will leave the surgery center with a small dressing over your incisions. To promote a speedy recovery it is vital that you rest and eat a healthy diet high in protein. We recommend avoiding the consumption of alcohol and tobacco. To help reduce the risk of the formation of blood clots in the legs and speed up your overall recovery, we recommend walking early and frequently after your surgery is complete. Your physician will make a final determination after the surgery, but usually one to three days after the procedure you will be able to remove your dressings and shower. Your first post-operative exam will occur anywhere between 1 to 3 days after the procedure. It is common after breast augmentation surgery to feel some discomfort and a feeling of tightness in the chest area. It is very important that you take your antibiotics until they are done. It is not unusual to have a low-grade fever after any surgical procedure. You may wear a sports bra or regular bra when you feel comfortable doing so. The implants need time to fall into the pocket (this takes about two weeks). For this reason we do not recommend purchasing or getting measured for new bras until this two-week period has passed. If you have any questions during the recovery phase, please do not hesitate to call our office.

What are the benefits of a breast augmentation?

The most common benefit of a breast augmentation is that you will have a breast size and shape that is more pleasing to you.

Are there any risks of a breast augmentation?

Every surgical procedure has risks and we recommend every patient considers them carefully before proceeding. Breast augmentation carries both aesthetic and health risks, and you have to decide wether the benefits outweigh the risks. Some risks include breast asymmetry and firmness, changes in nipple or breast sensation and capsular contracture. There are also more uncommon, complicated risks such as bleeding, deep vein thrombosis, and infection, which may require the removal of the implant.
