The procedure length can vary depending on the individual, as everyone is different. We carry out the procedure after considering each person's particular condition. You'll learn specifics during the in-person consult.

 

Q: Does the procedure itself hurt?

 

Breast augmentation is generally done under sedation -- so there's no pain during the actual procedure itself. However, there normally is some pain and swelling after the procedure that can range from light to moderate but usually subsides after a few days.

 

Q: How long does it take to recover from the procedure?

Recovery from breast augmentation varies from individual to individual. Please come in for a consult, and we will give you an answer based on your particular situation.

Q. What's the difference between augmentation and implants?

 

These terms refer to the same concept. Technically, the term breast augmentation refers to the actual procedure, whereas the term breast implant refers to the inserts placed inside the breast to augment it.

 

Q. What's a breast lift?

 

The breast lift (also called mastopexy) is a simple surgical procedure where the nipple is positioned higher on the body than where it was originally located on the patient. It's a relatively simple procedure and should not take more than a few hours. The breast lift can help you achieve more youthful appearing breasts.
