Breast augmentation surgery is often the choice of women who feel their breasts are too small or note that their breasts are not the same size. Breast augmentation surgery uses implants (saline or silicone) or fat transfer to increase the size and fullness of the breasts. Your breast augmentation outcome depends on a variety of factors, including size, skin elasticity and your body’s frame. Dr. Klok will take the time needed to discuss all options with you as well as provide you with the necessary information for an informed decision.
What to expect?
During surgery under a general anesthetic, Dr. Klok makes a small incision in the breast crease, around the aerola or in the area of the armpit (whichever one was chosen during your initial consultation), allowing for insertion of the implant into the breast pocket. The incisions will be small and inconspicuous. After inserting the implants and ensuring they are symmetrical, Dr. Klok will close the incisions with dissolving stitches that don’t need to be removed.
How long does it take to recover?
Initial swelling that occurs right away following your procedure will typically resolve itself within a few days, with some residual swelling lasting anywhere from three weeks to a few months. Within the first two days, most patients will be able to resume normal activities and can generally return to work after three to four days post-surgery.
