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

Prior to breast augmentation Rockford patients will undergo a detailed health exam and thorough understanding of patient expectations as the first step. 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.
