The surgery team at JHopkins Plastic Surgery works every single day to help patients regain their self-appreciation through breast augmentation.

Preparing For the Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation itself requires that you do your research ahead of time. You need to ask yourself some questions: what size would I be happy with? Should I take time off work for recovery? Do I need to read literature on the surgery itself?

You’re not alone in these questions. Many patients wonder these same things, and we’re happy to help in the process. We are your advocate, and we aim to inform. We’ll let you know what risks are involved and what the expected outcome will be. Results vary on a case-by-case basis, but the same basis applies to all breast augmentations: you, the patient, will receive the breasts you’re happy with. Period.

The Breast Augmentation Procedure

Breast augmentation surgery involves using implants or fat, often referred to as fat transfer augmentation, to increase the overall size of the breasts or to restore the volume that has been lost through aging or trauma.

After the general anesthesia has been administered, the surgeon will make an incision in completely inconspicuous locations in an effort to minimize the scarring process. The type, size, and location of each incision will vary depending on the type of breast implant being implemented and how large your breast augmentation procedure is aiming for. The implant will then be inserted into a pocket, either under the pectoral muscle or behind the breast tissue itself. The incisions are then successfully closed using layered sutures, skin adhesive, or surgical tape. Once finished, the results will be noticeable immediately. Your breasts will appear more youthful, larger, and proportioned correctly for your body type.

Expectations and Complications

As with all medical procedures and treatments, diamond-tip microdermabrasion comes with its share of possible risks and complications. It should be said that these risks are minimal, and the microdermabrasion process itself is very safe. Most risks are associated with improper sanitization – if the equipment being used has not been sufficiently sanitized, patients are at risk of infections. It’s also possible that the small diamonds involved in the treatment could irritate the skin.  However, these complications are rare. You should expect to see clearer, more even-toned skin after just a single treatment.

Breast Augmentation Recovery

Breast augmentation is a major surgery with a built-in recovery period. You should know what to  expect during this time of recuperation. Most patients experience some stiffness, but are able to resume their normal lives relatively soon. It’s important to note that your specific recovery time will depend on a few factors, including:

  • Your overall health, pre-surgery.
  • The location and size of your breast implant.
  • Whether or not you have had prior pregnancies.
  • Whether or not your surgeon performed a lift at the same time as your breast augmentation.

If you have further questions about breast augmentation recovery, don’t hesitate to contact Dr. Jeffrey D. Hopkins today. Our team is always happy to help.

How long will it take me to recover from my breast augmentation surgery?

When it comes to breast augmentation surgery, recovery time varies from patient to patient. You should expect your recovery period to last at least 5 full days, and possibly longer. While you will likely be more tired than normal during this period, you can still resume all your normal day-to-day activities. Light exercise is okay, though anything too strenuous is certainly not recommended. You will likely also experience some swelling in the first few days after your surgery – this is normal. It’s always best to speak with your surgeon directly in order to determine your exact recovery plan. Contact J Hopkins Plastic Surgery at 972-298-6641 with any questions!

  • Minor to major swelling (most patients experience temporary swelling that subsides within days)
  • Some minor pain and discomfort
  • Numbness in the breast and nipple area

These side effects are normal, but there are also some rare complications associated with this surgery. These include:
