What does breast augmentation surgery address?
The shape of natural looking breasts tends to be sloped and in proportion with the rest of the body. When undergoing breast augmentation, there are different shapes to choose from when deciding on implants that will best compliment your breasts. The shape is dependent on your personal aesthetic goals and the approach that Dr. Delia recommends during your consultation.
The cc size (measured in cubic centimeters or milliliters) refers to the volume of the implant. The decision to increase or decrease the implant size is determined during an extensive sizing consultation. Depending on the look you want to achieve, Dr. Delia will help assess what size is best for you.
What does it entail?
This is one of the most commonly performed cosmetic surgery procedures. It usually takes about one hour and is done under general or sedational anesthesia. There are a variety of different techniques to obtain a beautiful, fuller shape. Dr. Delia meets with you during your personalized consultation to discuss which method he feels is right for you.
Breast augmentations are often combined with breast lifts, tummy tucks, or liposuction. If a combination of procedures is chosen, then the surgical procedure time will be longer. Dr. Delia will discuss the best way to achieve your desired aesthetic during your consultation.
Breast Augmentation (Boob job) Recovery
Expect to feel tired and sore after the procedure. There may be postoperative discomfort, but generally, this is managed with oral medication as needed and subsides within a couple of days.
Although you will need to walk post-surgery, you will be unable to perform strenuous activity. It is important to limit significant strenuous activities so that the tissue may heal. We advise that a capable adult stays with you for a 24-hour period following the surgery to monitor recovery. Most patients are able to return to work within a week.
Who are good candidates for this surgery?
Women may experience a loss of volume after weight loss or pregnancy, resulting in a less than desirable shape. Women may then choose this procedure to attain fuller, more shapely breasts, adding balance to the overall figure. Restoring natural breast volume that may have been lost due to aging or significant weight loss is also a typical goal.
