Breast augmentation, also known as a "boob job," can effectively enlarge your bust and deliver beautifully shaped and perky breasts.

Breast implants, which can be either silicone or saline-based, are the most common breast augmentation procedure. In addition to breast implants, breast fat transfer, and breast lift are also popular surgical options available to women who want naturally perky and shapely breasts.

What You Need to Know About Breast Augmentation With Implants

Breast augmentation can give you natural-looking youthful, fuller, and perkier breasts. Your breast augmentation results can last for more than ten years. The size of your implants is usually based on the chest width and your doctor can help you decide which size and shape are best suited to our body type.

Preparing for a Breast Augmentation Surgery

A detailed health exam and thorough understanding of patient expectations are the first steps of preparing for your breast augmentation. Your doctor will also take measurements of your chest wall and breasts.

Based on all this information, your doctor will decide the most ideal incision locations. You will be advised on risk factors as well as recovery measures post-surgery. You might also be asked to undergo a pre-surgery mammogram.

What Happens During a Breast Implant Surgery

An incision is made around the nipple. The location can either be in the fold under your breast, or it can be in the armpit.

A pocket is created – either above or below your chest muscles and your chosen implants are inserted in the pockets.

The incision is then closed using layers of internal stitches while the skin is sutured, or closed using either skin adhesive or surgical tape.

The procedure can take approximately an hour. Most patients are not required to spend the night in the hospital.

Downtime After Breast Augmentation With Implants

Breast augmentation with implants will require some downtime. You can resume normal activity within seven days, however, you will be advised to avoid any heavy lifting or exercising. You can resume light activity within three weeks post-surgery, and regular/strenuous activity can be resumed within four to six weeks.

Pregnancy After Breast Implant Surgery

It is best to consider breast augmentation procedures once you have decided not to have more children since pregnancy can impact your weight which in turn can impact the results of your breast augmentation procedure.

Can you still breastfeed after a breast augmentation with implants?

Yes. Your breast implants should not impact your ability to breastfeed. However, research from the International Breastfeeding Journal cautions that milk ducts can suffer potential damage during breast surgery which involves making an incision around the nipple – this could impact the production of milk.

How Much Does Breast Augmentation Cost?

On average, a breast augmentation procedure varies for each individual patient. Factors such as type of augmentation, the current state of the health, and the goal for your surgery. The best way to determine the cost is to schedule a consultation. During your consultation, you will be able to ask any questions you have and will receive a cost estimate which will include all the required services. Contact Pryor Health today to get started.
