Breast Augmentation (Breast Implants)
This operation is ideal for patients who:

Breast augmentation is an operation used to enhance the size and shape of the breast mound. There are a number of decisions that a patient will make with Dr. Platt when considering to have a breast augmentation. Typically, an incision will be placed underneath the breast. The type of implant, and placement of the implant above or below the pectoralis muscle will be discussed with each individual patient. Most patients will have same-day surgery, meaning they will be discharged home the same day as the operation. Dr. Platt will discuss the recovery process and establish a follow-up schedule with you.

How it Works
After your consultation, once we have a full understanding of your desired outcome, we will perform careful anatomical measurements, tissue assessment and devise a meticulous plan of action. Breast augmentations are performed using small and conspicuous incisions in the lower crease beneath the breast, along the lowest border of the areola, or under the arm. There are many factors that will contribute to the process of a breast augmentation procedure including, but not limited to your unique and individual shape, placement of your chest muscles, areola size, glandular density, definition, implant choice, personal preference and goals. We consider all aspects of your body before determining the ideal method for you and provide you with minimal incision scarring. The placement of your implants can be below or above the muscle. This is something that can be thoroughly discussed with your doctor.
Does the breast augmentation procedure hurt?
No, breast augmentation does not hurt, the procedure is performed under general anesthesia administered by a certified anesthesiologist.
How long does it take?
Breast augmentation procedures take approximately 1.5-2 hours.
How long does it take to recover?
Immediately following the procedure, you will be monitored by a registered nurse for 1 to 2 hours until you are fully awake. Then you can be discharged and taken home by a friend or family member. You may return to work and your usual activities about a week after the procedure. Your breasts may appear swollen for the first and the shape and size will settle into final position after about 12 weeks. Light exercise may be resumed after one week and more vigorous activities may commence after three weeks. Standard follow-up visits are at one week, six weeks and 12 months.
