Breast augmentation surgical details

A breast augmentation procedure is performed with the patient under general anesthesia, and takes one to two hours. 

During your consultation with Dr. Craft, he will explain the details of your Phoenix breast surgery, exactly where the incisions will be made, what type of implants will be used (silicone or saline), and what you can expect. 

On the day of your procedure, Dr. Craft will make incisions so that the breast implants can be inserted either behind the breast tissue (submammary placement) or underneath the chest muscle (submuscular placement). Incisions are made either around the areola (periareolar), within the crease of the breast (inframammary), or at the armpit (transaxillary). 

Once the breast implants have been placed, Dr. Craft will then close the incisions with sutures in the breast tissue. The incision lines will eventually fade.

Recovery

After your breast augmentation, you can expect to have swelling, itching, and soreness for several weeks, with the first week being the most difficult. Some patients also experience numbness or tingling in the breasts and nipples.

Dr. Craft can prescribe medication to help with any discomfort. To reduce swelling and any pain, some patients find it more effective to sleep upright for the first 48 hours after your breast surgery.

You should not do any high-intensity exercise for four to six weeks, and patients are usually able to return to their normal day-to-day lives in eight weeks. Dr. Craft will provide you with detailed home care instructions.

Results 

Patients should keep in mind that the body has to totally recover before final results are apparent, and this could take up to six months. (The incisions will be healed sooner than this.) Six months is the average amount of time it takes for the swelling to subside, and for the new breast implants to settle and adjust to your body.
