Breast Implant Surgery

Breast Augmentation is performed to enhance the breast shape and size using implants filled with either silicone or saline. Both types of implants are now FDA-approved and are available in a variety of sizes. Moderate and high-profile shapes allow fuller and more projecting results. Implants may be placed either above or below the chest wall muscle and through incisions under the arm (trans-axillary), under the breast (inframammary), or around the nipple (peri-areolar) based on patient-preference. The procedure is done in an outpatient setting and takes 1-1 1⁄2 hours. Temporary soreness and chest wall tightness that last 24-48 hours are the usual side-effects. Most patients are able to return to work about one week after the breast implant surgery, and resume strenuous exercise after 4 weeks. For more information check www.breastimplantsafety.org.
