Sometimes referred to as a “breast aug” or “boob job” by patients, involves using breast implants 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.
Medications are administered for your comfort during the surgical procedure.
Incisions are made in inconspicuous areas to minimize visible scarring.
During consultation with Dr. Luis Suarez, both will discuss which incision options are appropriate for your desired outcome. Incisions vary based on the type of breast implant, the degree of enlargement desired, your particular anatomy and patient-surgeon preference.
After the incision is made, a breast implant is inserted into a pocket either:
Under the pectoral muscle (a submuscular placement).
Directly behind the breast tissue, over the pectoral muscle (a submammary/subglandular placement).
The method for inserting and positioning breast implants depends on the type of implant, the degree of enlargement desired, your body type and Dr. Luis Suarez’s recommendations.
Incisions are closed with layered sutures in the breast tissue and with sutures, skin adhesive or surgical tape to close the skin.
The results of Breast Augmentation are immediately visible.
During your Breast Augmentation recovery, your breasts will be wrapped in gauze dressings and an elastic bandage or support bra will minimize swelling and support the breasts as they heal.
Immediately after surgery, you will be taken into a recovery area for close monitoring. You may be permitted to go home when you are stable for discharge, typically after an hour or so. Before leaving, you will be given specific postoperative instructions for your breast implant recovery and a follow-up appointment with Dr. Luis Suarez.
Because it is possible to bleed into the pockets around the breast implants for the first several days, take it easy until you have permission to increase your activity level. Acute pain typically subsides after one to five days, but you may experience soreness and swelling for a few weeks.
BEFORE & AFTER
Start a Virtual Consultation
A virtual consultation is when you send us photos of the places of your body where you’d like to improve. Then our surgeon analyzes it to confirm that you are a candidate for that particular procedure. We later inform you about our doctor’s decision and give you a quote with all the information about your surgery. Please, do be at ease that everything is confidential between yourself, the doctor, and the doctor’s representative.
