Breast Augmentation Surgery
What is breast augmentation?
Breast augmentation, sometimes referred to as a “breast aug” or “boob job” by patients, involves using breast implants or fat transfer to increase the size of your breasts. This procedure can also restore breast volume lost after weight reduction or pregnancy, achieve a more rounded breast shape or improve natural breast size asymmetry.
What can breast augmentation surgery do?
- Increase fullness and projection of your breasts
- Improve balance of breast and hip contours
- Enhance your self-image and self-confidence
Breast implants may also be used for Breast Reconstruction after mastectomy or injury.
How Much Does Breast Augmentation Cost?
As the procedure is different for every patient, there is no set price. An accurate cost can be given following consultations with your cosmetic surgeon, this will address whether you need an overnight stay and all aftercare appointments.
How Long Will It Take Me To Fully Recover From Breast Augmentation?
Every patient is different so recovery times for breast enlargement surgery can vary, however, we usually expect patients to make a full recovery and return to normal activities four to six weeks after surgery. Most people return to work one to two days after the procedure.
As part of the recovery process, you will need to wear a special, supportive post-surgical bra 24 hours a day. This is a bit like a sports bra and is designed to support your new breasts and protect them during the healing process.
Breast Augmentation After Care
After your breast surgery, you will be required to wear a post-surgical bra (similar to a sports bra) 24-hours a day, to support and protect your breasts after the surgery. Every patient is different but a full recovery is usually made between four and six weeks, returning to work after just one to two days depending on the nature of your occupation. Before leaving the hospital you will be given a full guide to help you to make a full and speedy recovery, along with a phone number so that you can call any day, any time that you need us.
It is important that you take things steady when you return home in order to rest and to fully recover from the surgery. After surgery with curls and curves, you are one of our patients forever, meaning that we are here for you whenever you need us.
