Breast Augmentation Recovery
Dr. Egozi prides himself on attention to detail in all facets of cosmetic surgery. It is this attention to detail and special nuances that he’s developed and adopted that minimize downtime and bruising and discomfort for his patients.
The First Days
Every individual presents special challenges but our usual breast augmentation surgery patient experiences minimal discomfort and minor swelling. She returns to her normal daily activities and work (unless she has a physically strenuous job) in 3 – 5 days. Frequently, we hear from our breast surgery patients that they required no pain pills postoperatively.
Three Weeks and Beyond
Generally, heavy physical activity can be resumed at around three weeks after surgery. While we do our best to minimize scarring, you may see a fine, white line at the point of incision. This incision is usually not even visible when wearing low necklines or bikini tops.
The length of recovery is partly related to the size of the implant. Larger implants will stretch more of the skin and muscle, leading to a greater feeling of tightness. However, this is relatively modest amount of longer recovery with larger implants.
Your Specialized, Comprehensive Evaluation
When you arrive at the Egozi Plastic Surgical Center, Dr. Egozi meets with you personally and customizes your care to suit your individual needs. Some women desire natural bust lines and others desire a fuller and more rounded appearance. Others fall somewhere in between. Dr. Egozi will discuss this, as well as the options of silicone or saline implants, recommendations for placement of the incision, and placement of the implant with regard to the pectoralis muscle.
When a patient is evaluated for breast augmentation, Dr. Egozi also considers whether she may need a mastopexy (breast lift) at the same or a later time. This is done so that he may best tailor each woman’s augmentation procedure to her desire, body size and shape. Your breast augmentation will help you attain that fuller bust you desire, but in some women a breast lift would help enhance that bust line.
