Breast Augmentation
The Procedure


Step 1-Anesthesia

Medications are administered for your comfort during the surgical procedure. The choices include intravenous sedation and general anesthesia. Your doctor will recommend the best choice for you.

Step 2-The incision

Incisions are made in inconspicuous areas to minimize visible scarring. You and your plastic surgeon will discuss which incision options are appropriate for your desired outcome. Incision options include: periareolar, inframammary, and transaxillary.

Step 3-Inserting and placing the implant

After the incision is made, a breast implant is inserted into a pocket either: under the pectoral muscle, or directly behind the breast tissue, over the pectoral muscle. The method for inserting and positioning implants depends on the type of implant, degree of enlargement desired, your body type, and your surgeon’s recommendations.

Step 4-Closing the incisions

Incisions are closed with layered sutures in the breast tissue and with sutures, skin adhesive or surgical tape to close the skin.

Step 5-See the results

The results of breast augmentation are immediately visible. Over time, postsurgical swelling will resolve and incision lines will fade. Satisfaction with your new image should continue to grow as you recover and realize the fulfillment of your goal for fuller breasts.
