What can a breast augmentation procedure help?

After the size and fullness of the breasts are increased, a variety of clothing such as shirts, blouses, and bathing suit tops fit better.

The majority of women have some degree of asymmetry between their breasts. Breast augmentation can increase the smaller breast more than the larger one as necessary to achieve enhanced breasts that are as close to the same shape and size as possible.

Many women desire breast augmentation because they feel self-conscious about the appearance of their breasts. After undergoing the breast augmentation procedure, women often develop a newfound sense of confidence knowing that their breasts are voluptuous and attractive.

Breast Augmentation FAQ

All breast augmentation procedures are performed with the patient under general anesthesia.

Most patients usually take about two weeks to recover from a breast augmentation, although many individuals return to work after one week. To ensure proper recovery, more strenuous physical activities and exercises should be avoided for at least one month.

Like most surgical procedures, there is some discomfort associated with breast augmentation surgery. However, prescribed medication and compression garments can alleviate any pain that is present during the first few days of recovery.

In most cases, breast augmentation is considered an elective procedure and is not covered by insurance. During your consultation, we will determine if insurance will cover your procedure.
