You may not be thinking about summer just yet, but bathing suit weather will be here before you know it. Is your body ready? If the size of your breasts is keeping you from hitting the beach or pool with confidence, there is a solution. Now is the perfect time to schedule your breast augmentation to shape up those curves in time for warmer temperatures.

Breast augmentation is used to enhance the size and shape of your breasts. We can customize the surgery in terms of the size, shape and profile of the implants to ensure you get the perfect size for your body proportions and desired results. With many options in breast augmentation today, you can rest assured we can create a look tailored to you. The ultimate goal is to create a new body profile that is both natural and beautiful with or without clothing.

Many decisions go into your preparation for your breast augmentation procedure, so it is good to begin your research on the process as early as possible. Some of the choices you will face include:

  • Type of implant – saline or silicone
  • Size of implant
  • Shape of implant – both round and teardrop (anatomical) shapes are available
  • Implant profile – how the implant projects from the chest wall
  • Implant placement – can be placed above or beneath the chest muscle
  • Incision placement – around the areola, across the breast crease or in the armpit

With a multitude of decisions facing you, the preparation for breast augmentation can seem overwhelming. However, when you choose an experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Mordkovich for your procedure, you can rest assured he will walk you through the decision-making process to ensure you get the precise results you are looking for.

Breast augmentation can be performed using local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia. It is usually done on an outpatient basis, which means you will be able to return home the same day as your procedure. Most augmentations take about two to three hours to complete. Care will be taken to ensure incisions and subsequent scarring are as inconspicuous as possible.

During breast augmentation, your implants will be placed into a pocket in your breast. This pocket may be located above your chest muscle and underneath your breast tissue. It might also be placed underneath a portion of your chest muscle, depending on the placement you and Dr. Mordkovich determined would be best for you. After your procedure, you will remain in recovery for a few hours before you are sent home with a friend or family member that will remain with you for the first day or two after your surgery.

After Your Breast Augmentation
Recovery from breast augmentation is often quicker than our patients expect. You will likely be up and around within the first couple of days and back to most of your activities within a day or two. Strenuous exercise may be restricted longer to ensure your body has plenty of time to heal fully.

Your results will be apparent right away and continue to improve in the following weeks as swelling subsides. If you schedule your breast augmentation in the next few weeks, you should be ready to hit the beach with confidence by the time summer rolls around.
