Breast Augmentation Q & A
Who should consider breast augmentation?
Breast augmentation increases the size of your breasts and improves their shape. You may consider the surgery if you have asymmetrical breasts that you wish to even out, genetically small breasts, or breasts that have lost their shape and fullness as a result of aging or breastfeeding.
Augmentation involves breast implants, and Dr. DiGeronimo works with you to determine the size, shape, and type that works best for your goals and body.
He’s performed thousands of surgeries and uses his vast experience to recommend just the right augmentation surgery to enhance your look.
How is breast augmentation achieved?
Breast augmentation involves placing a saline or silicone implant behind the breast.
Dr. DiGeronimo places it either over or behind the muscle to create a natural look and will determine which positioning is best according to your anatomy, type of implant, and desired results.
The doctor also works with you to determine which type of implant is best for your goals and body type. In some cases, breast augmentation also includes a lift and repositioning.
What should I expect during recovery from breast augmentation?
Healthy women usually recover relatively quickly after breast augmentation surgery. You can return to a sedentary job in about one week, while you might need a longer time off work if you have a more active job.
You’re generally expected to need about four weeks off from vigorous activity.
In the immediate recovery period, you’ll need to wear a specialized bra to support your pectoral muscles as they heal from the surgery.
What is a breast lift?
If you have sagging tissue and skin around your breasts due to aging, breastfeeding, or the natural weight of your chest, you may be a candidate for a breast lift.
This procedure enhances the appearance of your breasts so they look more youthful and perky. You may choose to have a lift with or without implants.
Both breast augmentation and breast lifts may be part of a reconstruction surgery.
