Breast Augmentation Q&A

What is breast augmentation?

This procedure, known medically as an augmentation mammoplasty, can be a powerful tool for women who want to address concerns with their breasts. It utilizes fat transfer or breast implants filled with saline or made with silicone and is highly adaptable.

For example, if you want to pursue breast augmentation with breast implants, your provider can help you choose between a range of sizes, materials, and shapes.

Whether you want to restore lost volume, restore a more youthful lift, or correct asymmetry, Luminary Dermatology can help.

Am I a candidate for breast augmentation?

Breast augmentation can have a variety of benefits, including:

  • Making the breasts more even in size and placement
  • Creating fuller breasts after losing volume because of pregnancy or significant weight loss
  • Rebuilding breasts after surgery for cancer or other conditions

Ultimately, cosmetic surgery is a very personal decision and should be done only with your own needs in mind.

What can I expect during and after my breast augmentation procedure?

You’ll start with a thorough evaluation at Luminary Dermatology, reviewing your goals and discussing reasonable expectations. If you smoke, you’ll need to quit for several weeks before and after your procedure.

The surgery usually requires general anesthesia. Once you are asleep or anesthetized, your surgeon makes an incision and gently creates space for an implant, placing it carefully to give you the most beautiful results. They close the incision and bandage your skin to start your recovery process.

You can expect soreness and swelling as your body heals and adjusts to your new implants. A compression bandage or sports bra can keep your breasts supported and positioned properly, and pain medication can reduce lingering discomfort.

You may need to take a week or two off if your job is strenuous. Avoid raising your blood pressure or heart rate for at least two weeks, and try not to jar the sensitive tissue.

For most, a 6-8 weeks recovery time is standard, but you should improve quickly after the first week. After 4-6 weeks and with your surgeon’s permission, you can return to exercise.

Luminary Dermatology ensures you have all the information you need to approach breast augmentation with confidence, recover smoothly, and enjoy your results to the fullest. To learn more and schedule your consultation, reach out to the nearest office by phone or online today.
