Before even it is decided to have the surgery, the patient must do some research, talk to her doctor, and ask any questions she may have. The doctor should ask the necessary questions to understand the patient’s expectations and motivation. The doctor should also mention the risk factor, complications, and expectations after breast augmentation surgery.

How is Breast Augmentation Surgery Performed?

There are 3 main stages of breast augmentation surgery. They are before surgery, during surgery, and after the surgery. Each step needs to be neat, well-thought, and well-performed.

a)     Before Breast Augmentation Surgery

Before having breast augmentation surgery, the first thing that needs to be done is to have an appointment with a cosmetic surgeon or a plastic surgeon. In that appointment, the doctor and patient can have time to get to know each other, express their expectations and needs.

Another step that needs to be taken is to make choices for the size, appearance, shape, and texture of the breasts. The patient should also choose the material of breast implants. If they are going to be made of saline or silicone. The doctor and patient also need to agree on how to perform breast augmentation surgery.

There are some cautions that the patient should consider as listed below.

  • Avoid aspirin.
  • Have a mammogram.
  • Have the medications that the doctor recommends.
  • Stop smoking for at least 4 weeks.
  • Have a companion to take you home and stay with you the night.

b)    During Breast Augmentation Surgery

Breast augmentation surgery is performed under general anesthesia. So that, the patient does not feel any pain or discomfort. A plastic surgeon or a cosmetic surgeon must perform the surgery at either a hospital or a clinic. When the procedure is over, the patient is awakened.

c)     After Breast Augmentation Surgery

The patient is likely to suffer from swelling of breasts and soreness for two to three weeks after the breastaugmentation surgery. The patient also finds it difficult to raise her arms. Bruising can be experienced for a couple of weeks, too. Some pain killers may be prescribed by the doctor.

The scars fade in a few months. However, they do not disappear. It is important to wear appropriate bras to support breast implants. Sports bras or compression bandages can help the patient support her breast after breastaugmentation surgery.

While going back to the regular life after breast augmentation surgery must be taken slowly. If the patient works in a job where she is physically active, she might not be able to go back to work in a month. The doctor will recommend a work plan before performing the surgery.

The patient should avoid intense physical activities for the first two weeks after breast augmentation surgery. Intense activities can raise the blood pressure or the pulse of the patient. Having the blood pressure raised can be harmful to the healing period.
